Sage Software Joins e-Prescribing Coalition for Presidential Petition
Date:12/4/2007

Sage on the Forefront of e-prescribing with Millions of Transactions

TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Sage Software today joins an esteemed list of petitioners urging the White House and President George W. Bush to revise regulations which prohibit controlled drugs from being electronically prescribed. According to a letter from the e-Prescribing Controlled Substances Coalition, such regulations are negatively impacting the adoption of electronic prescribing and foregoing potential significant efficiencies e- prescribing brings to healthcare.

Sage Software is among those submitting the letter along with large healthcare-related organizations such as BlueCross BlueShield, CVS, American Society of Consultant Pharmacists and Wal-Mart.

"E-prescribing is safe and secure," says Michael Burger, director of clinical product management for Sage Software Healthcare. "We appreciate that the government's obligation is to safeguard public health, but the vast inefficiencies in our healthcare system are overlooked in the current regulations. E-Prescribing is one of the many remedies that could counteract such inefficiencies. The cost savings are immense and the need in our healthcare system is great."

Sage Software systems enable more than six million e-prescribing transactions each year, making it a leader in the healthcare information technology sector. The company heralds e-prescribing for the efficiency and enhanced speed and safety it brings to healthcare delivery.

According to the coalition's letter: "Electronic prescribing is a system that enables prescribing clinicians to securely deliver prescriptions via computer immediately from the point of care directly to a patient's pharmacy of choice ... e-prescribing also improves patient safety through warnings about adverse drug interactions and allergies," among other functionalities.

What's more, according to the coalition's White House plea, electronic prescriptions actually save lives by eliminating miscommunications such as illegible handwriting, unclear abbreviations, ambiguous orders, complex regimens and dosages, and enable a reduction in Adverse Drug Events (ADEs).

Burger says that Sage Software's signature on the presidential note is indicative of the company's commitment to the advancement of healthcare information technology nationwide for the betterment of the nation's healthcare system.

"Sage Software has been a leader in this arena for nearly three decades," Burger said. "We have an unwavering commitment to bring efficiencies and improvements to healthcare delivery by providing top-notch electronic solutions which streamline and reduce paperwork, speed transactions -- like e- prescriptions -- and capture more information at the point-of-care."
