Others to Watch

The following companies are worth keeping an eye on during the coming year: DrFirst, founded in 2000, Rockville, Md.-based DrFirst describes its flagship product, Rcopia, as a “full-featured stand-alone electronic prescription management system.” The e-prescribing solution is gaining traction in various corners of the industry, including being part of a major Massachusetts health insurer-sponsored e-prescribing initiative. What’s more, DrFirst’s executives have created partnerships with major vendors such as Surescripts, RxHub, and FirstDataBank. And the company has won numerous awards, including at the TEPR (Towards the Electronic Patient Record) conference and from San Antonio, Texas-based Frost & Sullivan.

DrFirst also provides leading edge secure text messaging platforms.
