DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 19, 2005--Zix Corporation (ZixCorp(R)) (Nasdaq:ZIXI), a global provider of secure e-messaging, e-prescribing, and e-transaction applications and services, today announced it has received a signed letter of engagement (LOE) from a major healthcare organization for an e-prescribing pilot program.
"With the recent attention that e-health initiatives have received from the federal government, our announcement last week of a new program with Aetna, several other active e-prescribing request for proposals (RFPs), and now this LOE, the momentum in e-prescribing seems clear," said Rick Spurr, chief executive officer for ZixCorp. "This initiative has the potential to be our largest deployment to date. Upon success of this pilot expected in 2005, we anticipate this will expand into a much larger initiative in early 2006."
PocketScript enables physicians to write and generate electronic prescriptions directly to pharmacies through either a wireless handheld PDA or a secure Web site. The application also includes real-time formulary information, access to a drug reference guide, drug-to-drug and drug-to-allergy information, and patient drug history data.
