May 30, 2008 – Rockville, MD — First Insight Corporation, a leading practice management and electronic medical records (EMR) software company, and DrFirst, the leader in electronic prescribing and medication reconciliation, announced today that First Insight is the first practice management and EMR software company focused exclusively on the ophthalmic market to publicly launch a true “end-to-end” e-prescribing solution through its integration with DrFirst’s award winning GoldRx™ certified Rcopia™ e-prescribing technology.
This integration allows maximEyes users to submit regulatory-compliant e-prescriptions to pharmacies through a real-time, fail-safe, clinical transaction network.
“First Insight has demonstrated its leadership in this industry by bringing the benefits of electronic prescribing to eye care professionals,” said G. Cameron Deemer, President, DrFirst, Inc. “We value their forward-thinking commitment to providing high quality information tools to improve the prescription-writing process for their providers and patients.”
“DrFirst’s industry-leading technology and commitment to complying with state, federal, and local government prescribing regulations will be a huge benefit to maximEyes clients,” said Nitin Rai, President and CEO of First Insight. “The e-Prescribe Link will allow doctors to be one step ahead of electronic prescribing mandates, provide a higher level of patient service and safety by minimizing potential adverse drug events, and will increase staff productivity due to less time spent with pharmacy questions and renewal requests.” Case studies suggest a savings of up to 2 hours per day for office staff with a faster, one click, multi-prescription renewal process.
