DocuTAP and InstyMeds Partner to Enhance Patient Care and Workflow Management

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - May 20, 2010) -  InstyMeds Corporation, the market leader in automated physician dispensing systems, announced a partnership with DocuTAP, the leading Electronic Medical Record (EMR) and practice management solution for urgent care facilities. The partnership was formed to provide an innovative approach to workflow management for health care providers and better patient care.

"We wanted a state-of-the-art physician dispensing system to partner with and InstyMeds fit that criteria," said Eric McDonald, CEO of DocuTAP. "This integration of an EMR provider and drug dispensing system streamlines the process of prescription prescribing and dispensing to simplify medical staff workflow. We believe that this interface will improve both our clients' operations and patient satisfaction."

How it works. The medical provider enters prescriptions through the DocuTAP EMR software and the prescription order is sent to the InstyMeds dispenser. The fully automated InstyMeds system collects payment, performs a triple bar code safety check, and dispenses medications directly to patients. The prescription history is automatically stored in the DocuTAP EMR.

"We are excited about our partnership. DocuTAP shares the same commitment to quality and excellence as InstyMeds does," said Brad Schraut, CEO of InstyMeds. "As market leaders in both our company niches, it is an efficient solution to enhance the services we provide to clients."

Both InstyMeds and DocuTAP will be exhibiting at the UCAOA National Urgent Care Convention in Orlando, Florida May 25-27. www.ucaoa.org/education_annualconvention.php
