Carilion Clinic Announces SampleMD as New Patient Sample & Support System

ROCHESTER, MI--(Marketwire - July 7, 2010) -  OPTIMIZERx Corporation (OTCBB: OPRX) announced today that it has signed an agreement with Carilion Clinic to implement its SampleMD™ solution to allow its doctors and staff a more efficient way to search, select and distribute sample vouchers, prescription co-pay coupons and other support information right from their desktops.

Carilion Clinic is a healthcare organization with more than 600 physicians in a multi-specialty group practice and eight not-for-profit hospitals that specializes in patient-centered care, medical education and clinical research, with a goal of providing the best possible health outcome and healthcare experience for each patient. 

"Our providers are very sensitive to the costs involved when prescribing brand name medications. The SampleMD platform allows our practitioners a better way to provide sample vouchers to make sure they can tolerate any new medications prescribed or co-pay coupons to help them continue to stay on their medication," said Howard B. Graman, MD, Carilion Clinic Chair, Primary Care and Regional Medicine.

"We are excited to launch this important initiative with Carilion Clinic to provide an integrated electronic platform that reduces workflow interruption while providing more support to more patients," said David Harrell, Chairman and Founder of SampleMD. "It is right in line with the Carilion Clinic's mission to provide the highest quality health care for the individuals, families, and communities they serve."
