Windermere, FL (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - via NEWMEDIAWIRE - iCoreConnect Inc. (OTC:ICCT) announces the Texas Dental Association Perks Program (TDA Perks) endorsement of iCoreRx, the dedicated, cloud-based, electronic prescribing tool from iCoreConnect. iCoreRx is specifically designed to save providers time and protect patients from opioid abuse. The ePrescription tool complies with state mandates, including electronic prescribing of controlled substances.
This summer, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed House Bill 2174, requiring electronic prescribing of all controlled substances (Schedule II–V) beginning January 1, 2021. TDA Perks leadership is proactively protecting its member dentists with an affordable, fully-compliant solution. “iCoreRx immediately puts an accurate, low-cost, fully-compliant ePrescription resource into the hands of Texas dentists. “We are thrilled to provide a trusted option for TDA members to use in their practices,” shares TDA Perks General Manager Donovan Osio.
As of January, Walmart and Sam’s Club now require ePrescriptions for controlled substances. “It would be a disaster if dentists are unable to prescribe to those major pharmacies,” iCoreConnect President and CEO Robert McDermott states. “iCoreRx allows TDA member dentists to send ePrescriptions to the pharmacy of their patients’ choice with no disruption.”
iCoreRx is more than a quick, accurate, HIPAA-compliant ePrescription tool. McDermott elaborates, “iCoreRx provides a digital copy and audit trail of every prescription sent. It also interfaces with many popular practice management systems, improving efficiency and saving time.” iCoreRx has a built-in Lexicomp directory for quick and easy selection of the exact medication needed, as well as its available doses. And if a dentist prescribes certain drugs or sets of drugs frequently, iCoreRx can save them to “Doctor’s Favorites” for quick selection.
Within iCoreRx, providers may choose to connect directly with any state’s Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PMP). iCoreRx with the PMP function provides real-time access to the latest state data in one step. iCoreRx + PMP simplifies mandatory prescription checks through a single screen interface with a provider’s practice management system, eliminating manual data entry and showing patient information alongside the PMP data.
iCoreRx is the fourth iCoreConnect software product endorsed by the TDA Perks program. Earlier this year, TDA Perks endorsed iCoreHuddle practice revenue optimizer. TDA Perks endorsed iCoreDental cloud-based practice management (Electronic Health Record) in 2015 and iCoreExchange (HIPAA-compliant email) in 2013.
iCoreConnect builds and improves all of its software based on the feedback of currently-engaged healthcare providers, including approximately 2,000 dentists and physicians who helped design and develop iCoreDental (dental practice management system), iCoreMD (medical EHR) and iCoreExchange (HIPAA-compliant email).
