MTBC Offers Free e-Prescribing Solution to Physicians Affected by New Law  

SOMERSET, N.J., March 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MTBC (NASDAQ:MTBC), a leading provider of proprietary, healthcare information technology solutions today announced it’s providing its leading e-prescribing solution free of charge for a limited period of time to physicians who have yet to implement an e-prescribing solution in the wake of New York’s new e-prescribing mandate.

“As of this week, New York’s I-STOP law took effect for all New York physicians and pharmacists,” said Amritpal Deol, MTBC General Counsel. She added, “I-STOP, which marks the beginning of a national trend, requires that all prescriptions be issued electronically, thereby rendering the paper prescription pad a relic of a bygone era.”

As part of MTBC’s I-STOP promotion, New York physicians who signup for MTBC’s e-prescribing by May 1, 2016, are entitled to use MTBC eRx free of charge for one year. This promotional offer is limited to 5 physicians per practice and only available to the first 500 physicians who contact MTBC.

MTBC eRx, MTBC’s proprietary electronic prescribing solution, is fully integrated with PracticeProTM, which includes a certified web-based EHR, practice management and revenue cycle management system. MTBC’s proprietary e-prescribing solution is available as an app, MTBC iRx, for Apple and Android users and an app for Apple Watch.

All of MTBC e-prescribe solutions are Surescripts® White Coat certified and facilitate controlled substances electronic prescribing through integration with EPCS Gold 2.0 by DrFirst®.
