Connected technologies to offer physicians new capabilities and cost savings

May 10, 2007

Rockville, MD —

Practicare Medical Management, Inc. and DrFirst, Inc. announces new partnership to work together to add true EDI e-prescribing capabilities to their existing suite of technology products. This partnership will advance healthcare technology that will bring Practicare clients new patient safety and efficiency capabilities and cost savings. Concurrently, the partnership will allow Practicare to provide their users access to Rcopia, a time-tested, top of the line e-prescribing application and to bring the feature to market quickly, with a greater ROI, and a shorter training to adoption cycle.

“Not all e-prescribing products are created equal. Therefore, compared to most EHR e-prescribe products that will only fax to the pharmacy, we believe integrating DrFirst Rcopia with our application takes functionality a step above the next generation of e-prescribe solutions,” said James Antonacci, Jr., CEO of Practicare. “As a medical management company we find this product integrates well with our mission of providing cost effective solutions for our healthcare providers.”

Connecting Practicare with DrFirst’s Rcopia GoldRx Certified e-prescribing Solution will substantially enhance customers’ ability to send and receive renewal scripts electronically to pharmacies and enhance clinical decision support functionality for drug/drug and drug/allergy interactions. In addition, connecting with Rcopia will allow users to access medication history beyond their clinical offices for up to the last 10 years of patient medication history, send electronic scripts to the mail order pharmacies, share patient data with other providers, and reduce pharmacy callbacks due to non-formulary compliance.

“We are pleased to partner with Practicare because they understand that physicians must function effectively not only as clinicians, but as effective business managers to remain profitable. The integration of our products promises dramatic new capabilities and efficiencies for all physician’s practices,” said G. Cameron Deemer, President of DrFirst.
