As physicians are becoming more tech savvy, and a younger flock is graduating from medical school more comfortable with gizmos, many companies are releasing mobile productivity tools specifically designed for physicians. DrFirst™, for example, just released its attractive e-prescribing system for the iPhone, allowing doctors to very easily, and securely, send a prescription to a patient’s pharmacy.
E-prescribing on the iPhone with RcopiaMini allows physicians to provide a higher level of patient service and safety, streamline practice workflows, and save time and money through the efficiency of electronic medication orders, renewals and formulary checking. New prescriptions and renewals are sent electronically to the patient’s retail or mail order pharmacy. RcopiaMini checks for patient insurance eligibility, formulary, and patient medication history. The application also offers clinical decision support tools to check prescriptions for drug-drug and drug-allergy interactions and appropriate dosing.
Besides the iPhone, the system is available for Windows Mobile and Palm OS devices.
