Video: Zix Corporation Issues Statement Supporting Bipartisan Push for Medicare e-Prescribing Requirement
Date:6/9/2008

New Jersey-Based physician office is proof that small practices are optimal

for eRx adoption

DALLAS, June 9 /PRNewswire/ - Zix Corporation (ZixCorp(R)), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), the leader in hosted services for email encryption and e-prescribing, issued a statement today supporting the bipartisan efforts to require electronic prescribing for Medicare prescriptions. On June 6, Senator Max Baucus (D- MT), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, introduced the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008 (S. 3101). This bill included positive incentives beginning in 2009 and a requirement to write Medicare prescriptions using a qualified e-prescribing system starting in 2011, enforced by financial penalties on physicians who fail to e-prescribe after that date.

"ZixCorp applauds the bipartisan efforts in Congress to promote the widespread adoption of e-prescribing, which also has the support of the Administration," said Rick Spurr, chief executive officer for ZixCorp. "We believe that Medicare, as the largest payor in the United States, can significantly accelerate the utilization of this technology through financial incentives to the physician. We're pleased to offer a system that meets the criteria defined by the bill and anticipate that this legislation, should it become law, will have a considerable impact on the e-prescribing industry."

As the leader in the e-prescribing industry, ZixCorp has been a pioneer in successfully providing this life-saving technology to doctors. ZixCorp has continued to maintain its focus on primary care, with a particular emphasis on small practices, since 75 percent of those physicians in the United States are in practices of 5 or fewer physicians.
