RxNT First in Industry to Provide Medicare Part D Formulary Information

ANNAPOLIS, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 1, 2006 -- RxNT, the nation's leading electronic prescribing system, is the first e-prescribing product in the industry to have comprehensive Medicare Part D (prescription drug coverage) formulary information available to physicians at the point of care.

"This is a big step for our industry. We now provide physicians at the point of care with a tool to make cost-effective decisions about the medications they are prescribing for their Medicare Part D participating patients. This is something that doctors have been asking for and we believe will significantly improve patient satisfaction," said Randy Boldyga, President/CEO of RxNT.

More than 10,000 providers licensing RxNT within 47 states in the U.S. will now have the ability to choose a patient-specific Medicare Part D formulary plan from a finite list of locally available plans thus eliminating the need to search through a national list of plans. The Medicare prescription drug coverage formulary list, provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and updated monthly, allows RxNT providers to quickly identify formulary compliant medications during the prescription writing process. In addition, RxNT's easy-to-use medication search tool offers Medicare Part D formulary compliant alternatives by therapeutic class thus eliminating the typical hassles associated with selecting formulary substitutions.
