SRSsoft Connects Physicians With Retail Pharmacies Across the Country

The Leader in Hybrid EMR Solutions Completes Surescripts® Certification for Routing of Prescription Renewals With Retail Pharmacies

MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwire - April 13, 2009) - SRSsoft, the leader in hybrid EMR solutions, announced today that it has completed additional certification with Surescripts®, which operates the country's largest e-prescribing network. SRS users will now be able to electronically and securely receive prescription renewal requests from retail pharmacies in communities throughout all 50 states and Washington, D.C. and electronically respond to those requests.

The connection to Surescripts allows for electronic routing of prescription renewal requests, which physicians can receive via their office computer instead of their fax machine. Prescription renewal authorizations or denials can then be electronically routed back to the pharmacy with just two clicks of a computer mouse, thereby eliminating many of the faxes and phone calls associated with the traditional refill process. New prescriptions can also be electronically routed directly to pharmacy computers before patients ever leave their physician's office.

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) reported that more than 1.5 million Americans are injured every year by medication errors. In the same report, the IOM recommended that all prescriptions be written and received electronically by the year 2010.

"SRS is dedicated to providing our hybrid EMR users with the best solutions for their practices," says Evan Steele, CEO of SRSsoft. "With Surescripts certification for the SRS hybrid EMR now in place, our client physicians are assured of having the best in overall efficiency, safety, and quality in the delivery of electronic prescriptions for their patients."
