RcopiaMU, a Complete Modular EHR that allows Physicians to qualify for HITECH ARRA, PQRI, and MIPPA incentive payments quickly and without a long-term commitment

January 31, 2011

Rockville, Md., —- DrFirst, Inc., the nation’s leading e-prescribing software company, will demonstrate RcopiaMU at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference and Exhibition February 21-23, 2011, in Orlando, Fla., at Booth #442. RcopiaMU is a top 5 ranked complete modular EHR solution available on the market that enables physician practices to meet all 25 Meaningful Use incentive requirements to secure up to $63,750 in Federal bonus payments over the next 5 years.

RcopiaMU is an upgraded, ONC-ATCB and CCHIT-eRx certified version of DrFirst’s award-winning e-prescribing solution combined with a national patient registry. RcopiaMU was recently ranked in the top 4 EHRs on the market in the 2011 Black Book report under the category of the Top 20 Comprehensive Family Practice Physician Electronic Medical Records Vendors. RcopiaMU allows providers to meet all 25 Meaningful Use incentive requirements for ARRA, qualify for PQRI and remaining MIPPA payments. For as little as $7 a day, RcopiaMU provides doctors with a complete modular certified system that qualifies them for up to $21,250 in Medicaid and Medicare incentive payments in 2011 alone under the HITECH Act.

“As a company that emphasizes putting the doctor first, we created RcopiaMU as a ‘next step’ for practices seeking to qualify quickly for incentives in 2011 with less commitment and minimized risk, while making a slower and more manageable transition over the next two years into the paperless environment of a traditional EHR,” said G. Cameron Deemer, DrFirst President. “By deploying RcopiaMU now, providers can quickly qualify for incentives which will help fund further next steps to a paperless EHR.”

A special media-only Breakfast, video demo and Q & A session will be held at Booth #442 on Monday, Feb 21 from 9:30 am to 10:30 am. Representatives from DrFirst, including President G. Cameron Deemer and Chief Strategic Officer Thomas E. Sullivan, MD, (past President of the Massachusetts Medical Society) will be on hand to answer questions regarding RcopiaMU.

In addition, a limited number of luxury style USB pen media kits will be available at booth #442 once the exhibit hall is open on Monday. To register for the breakfast, schedule a personal demo, reserve a USB pen or set up a one-on-one interview with the President or Dr. Sullivan, please email

DrFirst will also showcase its new iPhone app and answer questions regarding the company’s two newest divisions; Hospital Services Group, which helps hospitals swiftly achieve Meaningful Use objectives through medication management for their facility, and Patient Innovations division, which focuses on physician/patient interaction.

HIMSS attendees ready to implement an EMR or EHR are encouraged to visit our Open Borders partners who have integrated DrFirst’s Rcopia e-prescribing software into their systems. Partners attending HIMSS include: AZZLY (Booth #3980), Greenway Medical Technologies (Booth #2430), Noteworthy Medical Systems, Inc. (Booth #3709), Patientkeeper, Inc. (Booth #644) and Sindhu Synergy (Booth #440).

The HITECH ACT and accompanying Meaningful Use requirements are the primary topics at HIMSS 2011. Eligible physicians who meet these objectives in time can qualify for up to $63,750 in stimulus funds. But there is a deadline, after which physicians will be penalized up to five percent reductions in Medicare and Medicaid payments. DrFirst welcomes your questions about how RcopiaMU offers the fastest path to realizing Meaningful Use incentives, including how practices can receive their checks in 90 days from implementation.
