CPR+ Specialty Pharmacy Software Receives Surescripts Certification for e-Prescribing

Sep 13, 2011, 08:30 ET from Definitive Homecare Solutions, Ltd.

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Definitive Homecare Solutions, the developers of the leading specialty pharmacy software, CPR+, announced today that CPR+ has received Surescripts certification for e-Prescribing.

"We continually look for ways to enable greater efficiencies for our customers through automation," said Stuart Crane, co-owner of Definitive Homecare Solutions. "With the dramatic increase in the adoption of e-Prescribing among physicians practices, the addition of e-Prescribing to our offering to the specialty pharmacy market presents a tremendous opportunity for our customers to lower costs and increase referrals by taking advantage of this technology."

E-prescribing refers to the ability of prescribers to send new prescriptions electronically to pharmacies and for pharmacies to electronically receive those prescriptions and send refill requests as needed. Surescripts provides the largest e-Prescribing service nationally, providing the common platform to route prescriptions between physicians and pharmacies.

CPR+ incorporates its new e-Prescribing capabilities into a work flow queue that is designed specifically for specialty pharmacies. Unlike traditional retail pharmacy, specialty pharmacy requires a high degree of clinical therapy management involving regular contact between the pharmacy and the patient, as well as needing to meet regulatory, manufacturer, and insurance requirements specific to the high-cost medications dispensed by specialty pharmacies. CPR+ enables specialty pharmacies to meet those needs efficiently by providing a step-by-step process to guide pharmacies through patient intake, medication dispensing and refill, clinical patient assessments, and reimbursement.

The integration of e-Prescribing into this workflow will further enhance efficiencies in the intake and refill process for specialty pharmacies while improving patient safety and lowering overall costs.
