Vermont Receives National Award for Physician e-Prescribing Thanks to Efforts by Local Healthcare Firm
Date:6/22/2009

Vermont named "Most Improved State" for electronic prescriptions due to efforts by Vermont based Healthcare Firm, MBA HealthGroup, the leading provider of electronic health record solutions to Vermont physicians.

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) June 22, 2009 -- The State of Vermont was awarded "Most Improved State in E-Prescribing" at the 4th Annual Safe-Rx Awards on Monday, June 22 in Washington D.C. The Safe-Rx Award recognizes how e-prescribing enhances patient safety by providing a more secure, accurate and informed prescribing process. Governor Jim Douglas was in attendance as one of several presenters and as the recipient of Vermont's award. Governor Douglas was accompanied by Sandra Bechtel and Lauren Parker, founders of MBA HealthGroup. MBA HealthGroup is the largest implementation, support, and hosting provider of Electronic Health Records to Vermont physicians.

MBA HealthGroup was recognized by SureScripts for being a key contributor to Vermont's e-prescribing success in its State Progress Report on E-Prescribing, a summary of key Vermont e-prescribing statistics from 2006 to 2008. "The e-prescribing solutions MBA HealthGroup has rolled out in Vermont have not only improved upon the patient experience, but have made it safer to be a patient in Vermont. The sooner every physician in this country is e-prescribing, the better off we'll all be as patients" said MBA HealthGroup CEO Sandra Bechtel.

"E-Prescribing has been an easy way to improve patient care through automatic allergy and drug interaction warnings, and quickly facilitates prescription writing and refills" said Dr. Joe Haddock, a practicing Vermont physician at Thomas Chittenden Health Center in Williston, VT.

The Safe RX Awards is hosted by Surescripts, which is the nation's largest electronic prescribing network. Surescripts created the Safe-Rx Awards to recognize the outstanding leadership shown by states and stakeholders across the country that have helped to make the prescribing process as safe and efficient as possible. The Awards also serve to educate the public about the role of technology in prescribing medications and the benefits for patients, pharmacists and physicians.
