NEW YORK, Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MPR is pleased to announce the introduction of MPRxOnline, a collection of services and resources to support healthcare practitioners in their busy practice. Through MPR's website, www.eMPR.com, healthcare professionals are now able to e-Prescribe via a Surescripts® certified platform, anytime, anywhere, and at no cost by accessing MPRxOnline on their computer or mobile device.
In addition to free e-Prescribing capabilities, MPRxOnline offers a one-stop destination for a comprehensive array of resources including patient education materials; product coupons, samples, and vouchers; detailed product information; and access to patient assistance programs.
Users of MPRxOnline also enjoy access to MPR's robust database of 4,300 concise drug monographs, a comprehensive drug interactions checker, clinical charts, daily drug news, and point-of-service interfaces including Billing & Coding, Drug Pricing, and a Pharmacy Locator.
"Our goal at MPR is to provide effective and efficient tools that lead to better decision making by busy clinicians and to safer, improved outcomes for patients," said Tammy Chernin, RPh, VP of MPR Drug Information & Product Development. "The addition of product resources and e-prescribing capabilities to the MPR web site supports this mission by providing the clinician an opportunity to check dosages, potential interactions, contraindications, and allergies before they prescribe a medication. Providers can then follow-up with educational materials, coupons, financial assistance programs, and other services to support high-quality, cost-effective health care."
MPR strives to connect our users to the resources they want, when and where they want them in user-friendly formats that allow for quick, easy retrieval of accurate, timely information. Available anytime, anywhere via a smartphone or tablet Internet browser, and to debut in December, eMPR.com's responsive design for mobile devices will make for a seamless, multiplatform source of drug information and clinical support tools. The combination of services and resources will meet the needs of enhanced patient care for both practitioners and patients.
MPRxOnline is powered by Healthcare Resources Online (HRO). HRO has designed this platform to promote better communication and information exchange with patients and ultimately better utilization of resources.
