SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, HospiceMed, a technology leader in the hospice PBM industry, had the privilege of announcing the completion of electronic prescribing for controlled substances, or EPCS, using the Surescripts network. For the past several years, HospiceMed has provided innovative solutions built specifically for the hospice and palliative care industry. Now, with their new EPCS capabilities, they offer the ability for prescribing practitioners to send controlled medications directly to dispensing pharmacies without having to provide faxes or hard copies.
HospiceMed was founded by a PharmD who had a life-changing experience with hospice. While under hospice care, one of his close family members did not receive the medications they needed—a direct result of a communication breakdown between the hospice and the pharmacy. The creation of HospiceMed's ordering, profiling, and e-prescribing software, eRx, was a direct response to this issue. Additionally, according to hospicemed.com, HospiceMed itself "was founded with the objective of improving patient care by providing nurses, physicians, administrators, and pharmacies with industry leading tools, technology, and customer service."
In January 2017, HospiceMed completed a third-party EPCS audit with the Drummond Group, LLC, a global software certification organization approved by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). The approval from the Drummond Group enables prescribing practitioners of HospiceMed's clients to quickly and securely send medication orders directly to pharmacies using a simple ordering process through HospiceMed's eRx software.
While discussing the new EPCS-enabled system, HospiceMed's CEO Jared Stong said, "We are thrilled to offer another innovative solution to the hospice industry. Hospice patients are in an exceptionally vulnerable stage in their lives, and we pride ourselves in providing solutions that help the dedicated and caring hospice healthcare professionals as they care for their patients."
