MTBC’s E-Prescribing Application 100% Approved by Surescripts®

SOMERSET, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MTBC is pleased to announce that it has achieved 100% approval from Surescripts® for its e-prescribing application — both for the web-based application offered through its website and for its app designed specifically for use with Apple® mobile devices, MTBC iRx. Unlike other vendors who offer e-prescribing capability through a third party provider, MTBC has developed a native application that is delivered through a direct connection with Surescripts®.

Both applications allow physicians to send prescriptions to pharmacies electronically. MTBC iRx, which has already been approved by Apple® for sale in its App Store, allows physicians to send new prescriptions and refill requests directly from their Apple® iPhone™, iPad™ or iPod Touch™ devices. The web-based application offers the same capability, along with increased functionality with regard to formularies and histories.

The ability to e-prescribe is one of the key components of the government’s plan to facilitate the adoption of electronic medical records and create a national electronic healthcare information infrastructure. Under the 2010 eRx Incentive Program, healthcare providers who effectively e-prescribe can earn a 2% incentive payment on their Medicare collections. Click here for more information.

The recent approval from Surescripts® is the result of MTBC’s ongoing commitment to providing innovative, affordable technology solutions to healthcare providers and practices across the nation. Its e-prescribing application is just one of the many new technologies developed by MTBC to meet the ever-changing needs of its growing client base.
