About the ZRx Prescriber

The "ZRx Prescriber" is a Web application that runs on a pocket computer or a PC. The tool is used by physicians to fill out prescriptions and make them available to pharmacists, who can view the scripts information online via unique barcodes and confirm the scripts information using the physician's signed copy. Prescription errors (illegible handwriting, incorrect dosage, drug interactions) lead to 700 fatalities and 150,000 hospitalizations every year in Canada, representing $613 million in additional healthcare costs.

The "ZRx Prescriber" also gives physicians access to a portable source of medical information generated by the pharmaceutical companies and private or public organizations that use this revolutionary new communication tool. Thanks to the "ZRx Prescriber", thousands of Canadian physicians can now have access to vital information such as clinical studies, scientific discoveries, new product launches, medical training information and major medical alerts.
