Chicago, IL, January 18, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) mandates that certified EHR vendors possess e-Prescribing technology as part of Meaningful Use compliance. The technical goal of e-Prescribing is to electronically send "an accurate, error-free and understandable prescription directly to a pharmacy from the point-of-care.’"CMS believes this is an key element to not only extend EHR technical capabilities, but more importantly to enhance quality of patient care.
Empower Systems™ offers computer documentation solutions built by clinicians, for clinicians. From product development to sales, Empower is led by practicing clinicians. They feel this bridges a crucial gap in the EHR selection and implementation process, for while Information Technology professionals retain a central role in clinical documentation design and support, ARRA/HITECH mandates have necessitated increased involvement by physicians and nurses in all phases of Electronic Health Record initiatives. Empower Systems™ President, Seth Guterman, MD FACEP, commented that “The addition of e-Prescribing functionality to the Inpatient, Ambulatory, ED, and HIS product suite represents an important new layer in Empower’s One Patient, One Chart, One Database philosophy.”
