Vero Beach, FL and Rockville, MD —

AZZLY™, an innovative provider of workflow-enhancing ambulatory clinical and business solutions, today announced it has partnered withDrFirst to provide comprehensive e-prescribing functionality within AZZLY’s integrated electronic health record/practice management/personal health record. The partnership brings the safety and efficiency benefits of DrFirst’s Gold Certified Rcopia e-prescribing to AZZLY’s intuitive single-source solution that streamlines practice workflow, improves efficiencies, reduces costs and improves clinical outcomes.

“Physicians are looking for an application that pays for itself; not one that costs them money to maintain,” said Coletta Dorado, AZZLY President and CEO. “The AZZLY solution is all about efficiency, so physician practices can stay at 100% of patient capacity every day. We are using today’s technology and attracting the best partners, such as DrFirst, that understand that a streamlined, single-source solution reduces redundancy, prevents errors, saves time, saves money, and supports best practices. By keeping costs down, savings are passed on to our customers, making a subscription offering such as AZZLY EHR/PM/PHR affordable.”

“At DrFirst our goal is to always put the doctor first. This integration with AZZLY is a prime example of a vendor partner who shares our vision.” said G. Cameron Deemer, President of DrFirst. “This tight integration allows AZZLY’s clients to qualify for government incentive payments such as PQRI, MIPPA and upcoming ARRA/HITECH “Meaningful Use” within their clinical workflow in a very user-friendly format.”

AZZLY EHR/PM/PHR provides a fully integrated subscription-based solution that gives providers affordable access to all practice management and EHR features and functions needed to support a busy practice. The system is continually synced with the Rcopia database, capturing e-prescribing data in real time, checking for drug interactions, transmitting prescriptions to the pharmacy, and checking insurance formulary lists. Rcopia can also issue drug recall alerts to AZZLY for search and sort capability to identify patients currently prescribed with that particular drug, who can then be notified promptly. All this functionally happens behind the scenes while keeping the user experience simple and straightforward.

“At AZZLY we are very selective of the vendor partners that we integrate in our total solution,” Dorado adds. “Besides the significant time savings and ability to help eligible providers achieve stimulus eRx incentives, what attracted us to DrFirst was their vision as an industry innovator. We look forward to working with DrFirst on the DEA controlled substance e-prescribing initiative. These innovations and others will reduce fraud and lower the cost of care for all of us.”

With the integration of DrFirst’s Rcopia e-prescribing technology, AZZLY users will now be able to easily and securely submit electronic prescriptions to any retail or mail-order pharmacy while accessing comprehensive clinical information for each patient at the point-of-care. Accessible patient information includes drug and allergy interactions, complete prescribing histories, and formulary information. Doctors and their staff can easily access this Surescripts certified functionality from within the AZZLY system, and all resulting prescribing data is instantly captured within the application.

The joint solution is set to comply with the latest certification requirements released by the ONC. Additionally, customers using the joint solution will be able to eliminate illegible prescriptions, issue faster prescriptions, and experience dramatic reductions in calls and faxes between the medical office and the pharmacy.
