MacPractice Adds ePrescribe to MacPractice MD, DDS, DC, 20/20(March 31, 2009)
LINCOLN, NE -- (Marketwire) -- 03/31/09 -- MacPractice, Inc., the developer of MacPractice MD, MacPractice DDS, MacPractice DC, and MacPractice 20/20, the leading practice management and clinical applications for Mac, has collaborated with NewCrop(TM), a leading provider of electronic prescriptions, drug interaction and insurance formulary solutions, to provide ePrescribe capability to users of MacPractice software.
In July of 2008, legislation was passed that increases Medicare payments to doctors who ePrescribe in 2009, and decreases payments to those who do not in 2010. At the end of 2008, product specifications were published that ePrescribe solutions must meet to qualify for additional Medicare reimbursement. MacPractice has collaborated with NewCrop to create a solution that satisfies the new requirements.
Every MacPractice 3.6 product can support the use the NewCrop Electronic Prescribing system, an easy-to-use, web-based software solution that is safe, secure, and requires no downloading and no new hardware. A small group of offices who have enrolled will initially ePrescribe before it is made available to all MacPractice users later this month.
The interface between MacPractice and NewCrop eliminates redundant data entry and retains prescription history in the patient's clinical record in MacPractice.
Additional content including automated allergy, drug information and review, herbals, managed care formularies, drug interactions, and leaflets for patient education in 18 languages, is available and Managed care connectivity, as an option, provides an all-doctor drug history.
