MacPractice has announced that its eponymous medical practice software can now help doctors use the electronic prescription service eRX NOW.
eRX NOW is a free Internet-based electronic prescribing system from Allscripts. The service stores prescription history, tracks drug interactions and works on computers, PDAs and cell phones that are Internet-connected. Allscripts provides free training and support for eRX NOW. The company is a member of the National ePrescribing Patient Safety Initiative (NEPSI).
MacPractice also noted plans to offer another e-prescription system that will be built in to MacPractice MD, DDS, DC, 20/20 and EMR/EHR. That system will track patient prescription history and will debut later in 2008.
