May 5, 2003

ROCKVILLE, MD – DrFirst today announced plans to attend several upcoming healthcare conferences, with an emphasis on showcasing best text messaging for physicians, hospitals and EMR/EHR vendors.
“>Rcopia E-Prescribing and Charge Capture, the most full-featured product of its kind. Rcopia allows physicians to create legible scripts quickly and accurately from pick lists, warns of possible allergic and drug-to-drug interactions, checks for formulary compliance, remembers the patients medication dosage/interval and pharmacy of choice, reduces lost revenue associated with unrecorded patient visits, increases staff efficiency, and displays each patient’s active problem list.

Gartner Healthcare Business and IT Summit, May 5 – 7 in Boston, Massachusetts

PalmTM TungstenTM C handhelds, installed with Rcopia E-Prescribing and Charge Capture, will be provided for a three day trial to conference attendees during Gartner’s Healthcare Business and IT Summit to be held May 5-7 at the Sheraton Boston Hotel.

The Tungsten C handheld introduces several innovations in design and technology. It has the best out-of-the-box battery life available today on an 802.11 handheld device, thereby allowing physicians to have a full day of consistent Wi-Fi connectivity, or five days of average handheld use1; and a faster 400MHz XScale processor with more standard memory (64MB)2, so physicians can store and access more than 30,000 patient records on a single device. Using the Tungsten C handheld to sync wirelessly to the network, physicians can now have fast access to the most current patient data, vital signs, lab results, and medical reference information without returning to a central reporting hub3.
