Doctors at Henry Ford electronically prescribe by accessing DrFirst’s Rcopia point of care software using a personal computer or wireless device such as a tablet PC. They can order or renew prescriptions and then transmit them over the Internet to retail and mail-order pharmacies. HAP and Henry Ford provide training and ongoing support to office personnel, and HAP provides funding support and project management for the program. What began as a modest pilot project last year with 60 physicians quickly became a Henry Ford Health System-wide initiative, engaging more than 600 physicians.
