PrimeRx: ePrescribing for Greenway Prime Suite
ePrescribing functionality is integrated directly into Greenway Prime Suite. ePrescribing enables providers to electronically transmit prescriptions to the patient’s preferred pharmacy. Patient demographics, allergies, and medication history are displayed to provide greater accuracy and safety to the eRx process.
Electronic Prescription of Controlled Substances (EPCS) Functionality
Many states already require, and more states facing new requirements for Electronic Prescription of Controlled Substances (EPCS) when submitting controlled prescriptions to pharmacies. This functionality is currently available in Prime Suite. To consult your specific state requirements from Dr. First, please review this E-Prescribing Mandate Map. If your state is currently listed as “No Requirement” (in gray), you may still take advantage of this functionality in Prime Suite to better prepare you and your staff for future compliance.

What is ePrescribing?
ePrescribing is a provider’s ability to electronically send an accurate, error-free, and understandable prescription directly to a pharmacy from the point-of-care. ePrescribing is an important element in improving the quality of patient care. The inclusion of electronic prescribing in the Medicare Modernization Act (MMA) of 2003 gave momentum to the movement, and the July 2006 Institute of Medicine report on the role of e-prescribing in reducing medication errors received widespread publicity, helping to build awareness of e-prescribing’s role in enhancing patient safety.
