SOMERSET, NJ, Jan. 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MTBC, a leading provider of proprietary electronic health record (EHR), practice management (PM) and revenue cycle management (RCM) solutions, today announced the launch of an updated Android version of its proprietary electronic prescribing application, known as MTBC iRx.
"Expanding our mobile offering to include Android devices was a natural decision," said MTBC's vice chairman of the board, David Rosenblum. "Doctors today are more technologically savvy than they were even two years ago. They demand mobile solutions to help them improve practice workflow and provide on-the-go access to critical data."
"This latest launch again demonstrates MTBC's commitment to empowering healthcare providers with an industry-leading, fully integrated suite of EHR, PM and RCM solutions," said MTBC's president, Stephen Snyder. He further explained, "We will be launching additional leading-edge mHealth applications during the first half of 2013, which will further enhance our unique, end-to-end solution."
Adverse drug reactions are one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Incorrectly prescribed drugs cause otherwise avoidable hospitalization and serious injury to millions of patients. Providers who leverage MTBC iRx avoid many of the primary root causes, such as illegible handwriting, incorrect dosage specifications and drug-drug/drug-disease reactions that result in such injury and hospitalization. MTBC iRx also enables providers to avoid Medicare penalties and earn meaningful use incentives.
MTBC iRx allows providers to do all of the following right from their mobile devices:
· Submit prescriptions directly to pharmacies
· Approve or deny refill requests
· Receive automatic adverse interaction warnings
· View patient chart summaries
· Add patient accounts
· Make outgoing calls to patients and pharmacies directly from within the app
