Over 3,100 physicians across eight payor-sponsored e-prescribing programs throughout the U.S. actively use PocketScript to save lives, save time and save money.
"This milestone indicates that electronic prescribing is being used today and is ready for broader implementation," said Rick Spurr, chief executive officer for ZixCorp. "The payor-sponsorship model that ZixCorp created provides doctors with an easy transition to e-prescribing. Prescriber surveys have identified cost and administrative hassles as the key barriers to broader e-prescribing adoption. With our payor-sponsorship model, there are no costs to the doctors because it is covered by the health plan. Our high-touch approach to recruiting, deployment and training addresses the administrative issues, so partnering with payors can be the key to the widespread adoption of this life-saving technology."
ZixCorp's PocketScript(r) e-prescribing service enables physicians to order prescriptions through a secure wireless mobile PDA or secure Web site and deliver them electronically to the patient's preferred pharmacy. Mobility enables PocketScript to provide clinical decision support at the point-of-care with real-time access to a drug reference guide as well as patient-level eligibility, formulary, and co-pay information to aid the prescriber in selecting the most cost-effective prescription based on the patient's benefits. The application also provides comprehensive drug-to-drug and drug-to-allergy interaction alerts based on patient-specific dispensed drug history. Through partnerships with RxHub and RelayHealth, and as a SureScripts GoldRx Certified Solution(tm), PocketScript delivers end-to-end connectivity within the healthcare system to reduce unnecessary costs, improve patient safety and convenience, and enhance practice efficiency.
