meridianEMR Completes Surescripts(R) Certification

LIVINGSTON, N.J., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- meridianEMR, a leading provider of electronic medical records systems, electronic prescribing and advanced healthcare analytics, announced today that it has completed certification with Surescripts on June 24(th), 2009. meridianEMR users will now be able to electronically and securely exchange prescription information directly with pharmacies and payers in communities throughout all 50 states and Washington, D.C.

"We're pleased to receive this important certification and extend the capabilities of our mEMRxChange platform," said Michael Custode, President of meridianEMR, Inc. "The electronic prescribing capabilities have been seamlessly integrated into our solution without the need for any third-party, e-prescribing solutions, resulting in faster implementations and return on investment."

The connection to Surescripts allows physicians who e-prescribe using the meridianEMR application and mEMRxChange(SM) network to access valuable real-time pharmacy and payer information before prescriptions are written, thereby reducing errors and increasing physician effectiveness. Before a prescriber prepares an e-prescription, eligibility and formulary information will be provided through the meridianEMR application. With patient consent, prescription history can also be provided.

Additionally, the connection to Surescripts also allows for electronic routing of prescription refill requests, which physicians can receive via their office computer instead of their fax machine. Refill authorizations, or denials, can then be electronically communicated back to the pharmacy with a just a few clicks, thereby eliminating many of the faxes and phone calls associated with the traditional refill process. New prescriptions can also be routed directly to pharmacy computers before a patient ever leaves their physician's office.

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) has reported that more than 1.5 million Americans are injured every year by medication errors and recommends that all prescriptions be written and received electronically by the year 2010.

"Electronic prescribing makes everyone's lives a lot easier and significantly reduces all the unnecessary paperwork and back-and-forth that typically goes on between doctors and patients when it comes to the prescription and renewal process," said H. S. Jackson, M.D., Director of Template Development, meridianEMR, Inc. "In short, patient safety will be enhanced by the technological capabilities that eliminate prescription errors and reduce drug interaction risk."
