BRS Dental is ready for electronic prescriptions

BRS Dental is at the forefront of the electronic prescription wave, with New York State requiring that all medical providers, including dentists, use only electronic prescriptions as of March 27, 2015. Over a year ago BRS Dental partnered with DrFirst to offer dentists an integrated solution incorporating Rcopia (see http://www.drfirst.com/products/rcopia/rcopia-eprescribing-physicians/ ).  By using an integrated solution, our clients avoid having to re-enter patient demographic information when adding or checking patient prescriptions, which includes the capability to check for appropriate dosage, view existing prescriptions from other medical providers, and screen for allergies and drug interactions.  Those providers that might need to prescribe controlled substances can comply with the requirements in NY and other states for Electronic Prescription of Controlled Substances via EPCS Gold (see http://www.drfirst.com/products/epcs-gold/epcs-gold-physicians/ ), which is compliant with New York State and almost all other states’ regulatory requirements.  Contact BRS Dental for more information on our integrated solution for electronic prescribing.
