PROVO, Utah, Nov. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Curve Dental today announced the release of enhanced functionality for ePrescribe, a module within the Curve Cloud Platform that enables dental practitioners to send a new prescription or renewal to pharmacies from any digital device, including a smartphone or tablet.
Partnering with DrFirst, the nation's leading provider of e-prescribing, price transparency, and medication management solutions, Curve offers customers an efficient process for sending prescriptions from their everyday workflow within its cloud-based dental practice management solution.
The new release includes three prescribing options; ePrescribe –manage electronic prescriptions with ease, iPrescribe—write and send prescriptions from mobile devices, and PDMP—ensure compliance with certain states' Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) registration for Electronic Prescriptions for Controlled Substances (EPCS).
With the new functionality in Curve's ePrescribe module, customers can streamline prescription writing and reduce prescribing errors using the SmartSuite™ feature. The feature minimizes the need to search for drugs by displaying commonly prescribed medications with complete sig based on historical prescribing behaviors.
Curve understands the severity of the opioid crisis in the USA. PDMPs were developed to prevent opioid abuse by facilitating early detection and prevention of abuse while assuring the availability of controlled substances for legitimate pain management purposes. Curve's PDMP interface helps dental offices stay in compliance with state mandates, reducing manual and redundant steps by office staff.
Curve's PDMP solution helps customers stay current with individual state mandates as they become law without draining office resources. Gary Long, Curve's Chief Revenue Officer explains, "Our combined EPCS and PDMP solution streamlines workflow and dramatically reduces the time it takes to check patient prescription history, document the PDMP check and complete the electronic prescription. It also helps eliminate the possibility of human error throughout the process. We are committed to doing our part to address the country's opioid epidemic and feel that our solution will help dentists do their part to support the PDMP initiative."
