January 14, 2010

Rochester, NY — Rivers Computer Support (RCS) announced today its new partnership with DrFirst to provide comprehensive e-prescribing functionality to practices using the company’s newest offering, the practice management system. The fully integrated e-prescribing solution will enable customers to improve prescribing safety and medical practice efficiency.

With the integration of DrFirst’s GoldRx Certified Rcopia e-prescribing technology, RCS customers will now be able to easily and securely submit electronic prescriptions to any retail or mail-order pharmacy while accessing comprehensive clinical information for each patient. Accessible patient information includes drug and allergy interactions, complete prescribing histories and formulary information. Doctors and their staff members can easily access this Surescripts Certified functionality from within the practice management system and all resulting prescribing data is recorded.

The joint e-prescribing solution will comply with the 2010 MIPPA regulatory requirements issued by CMS. Additionally, customers using the solution will eliminate illegible prescriptions, issue faster prescriptions, and experience dramatic reductions in calls and faxes between the medical office and the pharmacy.

“Rivers Computer Support has demonstrated its leadership in this industry by bringing the benefits of electronic prescribing to healthcare professionals,” said G. Cameron Deemer, President of DrFirst. “Through this integration, RCS users will participate in the benefits of e-prescribing while being fully compliant with the growing body of state and federal regulations.”
