MacPractice, Inc., the leading Mac practice management and clinical applications company and developer of MacPractice MD, MacPractice DDS, MacPractice DC, and MacPractice 20/20 provides instructional assistance for MacPractice users to export their patient demographics to eRx NOW.

eRx NOW is a free internet-based electronic prescribing system provided by Allscripts, a member of the National ePrescribing Patient Safety Initiative (NEPSI). eRx NOW stores prescription history, provides drug interactions and is accessible via the Internet on a computer, a PDA or a cell phone. Free training and support for eRx NOW is provided by Allscripts.
As a founding member of the National ePrescribing Patient Safety Initiative (NEPSI), Allscripts offers the eRx NOW free electronic prescribing system. eRx NOW is an easy-to-use, web-based software solution that is safe, secure, requires no downloading and no new hardware.

In July, legislation was passed to increase payments made by Medicare to physicians who ePrescribe in 2009, and decrease payments to those who do not in 2010.

MacPractice will offer another ePrescribe solution in 2008 that maintains patient prescription history within the MacPractice MD, DDS, DC, 20/20 and MacPractice EMR/EHR.

“We are pleased to cooperate with the NEPSI initiative to improve healthcare in America by supplying doctors with a free solution for ePrescripting on a Mac, iPhone or any other Internet device.” said Mark Hollis, President and co-founder of MacPractice, in the press release.
