SOHO Computer Services and Benefit Control Methods Announce Generic Drug Substitution System

Fourth Year of New Technique Makes Drug Substitution Easier for Pharmacists and Health Care Providers

CORAL SPRINGS, FL--(Marketwire - August 13, 2007) - SOHO Computer Services and Benefit Control Methods announce on line generic drug substitution sign up with the state of Washington.

In conjunction with Benefit Control Methods and the state of Washington, SOHO Computer Services is continuing support for a successful program that allows on line sign up of physicians and other health care providers for a state-sponsored generic drug substitution program. The program, begun in 2003 by the state of Washington, was one of the first generic drug substitution programs in the country and has been widely duplicated by other states. Physicians can authorize, through the online process, the automatic substitution of generic for branded drugs without the necessity of a pharmacist calling a doctor's office. This streamlining saves time on both ends of the authorization process and the prescriptions get to the patients more quickly. Said Lawrence Elias, President, SOHO Computer Services: "When the program was begun, a lot of new ground needed to be covered in the authorization process. Four years later, this kind of process is a best practice and the benefits are easy to see. The state of Washington was one of the first to capitalize on the potential of such a program."

SOHO Computer Services maintains offices in Coral Springs, Florida and has provided computer design and programming services for Chrysler Corporation, the State of Michigan as well as several well known Florida companies. Founded in 1997, SOHO Computer Services is widely known in Florida, Michigan and Washington. Specialists in manufacturing, retail, distribution, sales, medical information systems, and computer training, SOHO's expertise has also been employed by clients in Venezuela and Mexico as well.
