Three of the Six Physicians Honored by Surescripts Use Allscripts Electronic Health Record and ePrescribing Solutions
CHICAGO, June 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Allscripts (Nasdaq: MDRX) today congratulated three of its clients who together accounted for half of the "E-Prescriber of the Year" award winners announced Monday by Surescripts as part of that organization's Fourth Annual Safe-Rx(TM) Awards. Safe-Rx is an annual award that recognizes how e-prescribing enhances patient safety by providing a more secure and accurate prescribing process.
The three Allscripts winners are Dr. Michael Brewer, M.D., a physician at Wabash Medical Center in Springfield, IL who uses an Allscripts Electronic Health Record to e-prescribe; Mark Earhart, M.D., a Watkinsville, GA physician who also uses an Allscripts Electronic Health Record to prescribe electronically; and Dr. Steven Green, M.D., a physician in Lancaster, KY who uses a stand-alone ePrescribing solution from Allscripts.
All three winners were identified independently by Surescripts through their use of prescription routing, benefit and history services in 2008. This includes managing prescription transactions electronically with pharmacies and using patient formulary and history information - that the physician receives electronically - in prescribing decisions using their Allscripts solutions.
"I want to personally congratulate Drs. Brewer, Earhart and Green, who exemplify the commitment of all our physician clients to using technology that enhances their practice of medicine by enabling the delivery of higher quality, safer patient care," said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Alls
