There are some big, exciting changes happening to the Practice Partner based EHR’s (Practice Partner, Medisoft Clinical and Lytec MD) over the coming week that we wanted you to be aware of.

In early 2019 Practice Partner version 11.2  will be released. 11.2 is the 2015 Edition Health IT Module Certification and will include many new enhancements and updates.  

Two of the biggest changes will be a completely redesigned ePrescribing and medication management module and a completely new web based patient portal called UpDox.

This post is all about the new Enterprise ePrescribing module. A later post will focus on the new patient portal. And as we get closer to the release of the new Enterprise ePrescribing module AVS Medical will be hosting a series of live webinars and training sessions on the new eRX functionality.

Before we talk about what’s in the new eRX module it’s important to talk about why the changes are being made. In addition to a more modern look and feel there are some significant regulatory changes coming that mandate the enhancements:

  • SCRIPT 2017

    • There are mandatory changes to the current ePrescribing network that go into effect January 1, 2020 that affect all EHRs and all EHR vendors. The new module will comply with this SCRIPT 2017 format.

  • CMS Final MIPS Rule requires changes

    • Structured SIGS

    • Multipole ingredients, compound prescriptions

    • 9 new message types

    • Many more changes

  • Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs - PDMP

    • Many practices are interested in integrating with their states PDMP programs. This integration will be coming in 2019 as well.

What’s New:

Enterprise RX will provide an entirely new look and feel to the ePrescribing process for both scheduled and non-scheduled drugs. The list of the major changes along with some screen shots is below.
