New Orleans, LA — mumms Software, the premier hospice EMR, announces today it will integrate with DrFirst, the nation’s leading provider of e-prescribing, price transparency, and medication management solutions. Unprecedented among hospice and palliative care EMRs, this in-workflow integration will give clinicians using mumms Hummingbird EMR seamless access to prescribe both legend and scheduled drugs without exiting the EMR, saving them time and improving the comfort and safety of their patients.
The in-workflow integration will significantly reduce the number of extra clicks and navigation time hospice and palliative care clinicians would otherwise spend exiting the EMR to access stand-alone e-prescribing tools. Eliminating the need for transcribing medication data back to the EMR significantly reduces the risk of transcription error and increases patient safety.
Clinicians will manage all medications in Hummingbird. With deeper, more accurate prescribing data at their fingertips, clinicians can quickly check a patient’s medication history, receive alerts for potential allergies or drug interactions, and efficiently manage all of a patient’s medications. Prescriptions can be renewed, canceled, updated, or stopped directly from a patient’s history. New prescriptions can be added easily with the help of filters and sticky features that recognize a clinician’s prescribing patterns.
“Being able to prescribe from A to Z in Hummingbird without re-entering information elsewhere is going to save a lot of time and reduce errors for our clients,” said Tim Blackmon, mumms Software Chief Information Officer. “It’ll let nurses be nurses, not data-entry clerks, and it will mean faster delivery for better patient care.”
