MTBC Announces Initiative and Special Offer to Promote Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances

SOMERSET, N.J., Dec. 7, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MTBC (NASDAQ:MTBC), a leading provider of proprietary, web-based electronic health records, practice management and mHealth solutions today announces its initiative to support electronic prescribing, which includes its fully integrated solution – web-based EHR, PM system, integrated electronic prescribing of controlled and non-controlled substances, and full service medical billing – for only 2.5% of collections.

"While industry estimates indicate that the majority of prescriptions for non-controlled substances are now issued electronically, more than 90% of prescriptions issued for controlled substances continue to be paper-based," said Shruti Patel, Esq., MTBC's Associate General Counsel and Compliance Director. She continued, "Electronic prescribing helps reduce fraud and prevent prescription drug abuse, so we applaud New York – which has mandated that all prescriptions must be issued electronically beginning March 27, 2016 – and other states that are moving closer to requiring electronic prescribing."

In support of the initiative to promote full electronic prescribing, MTBC is offering new providers who sign-up with MTBC by January 31, 2016 the following, for only 2.5% of collections, subject to terms and conditions:

  • MTBC's highly ranked, web-based, meaningful use stage 2 certified EHR;
  • mHealth app and EHR-based electronic prescribing of controlled and non-controlled substances;
  • Fully integrated practice management system with real-time eligibility and deductible details; and
  • Business intelligence and reporting module, patient portal, automated patient communications, and much more.
