How PrescribeIT Works

PrescribeIT® integrates seamlessly into electronic medical records and pharmacy management systems, enabling prescribers to electronically transmit prescriptions to pharmacies. PrescribeIT® includes:

PrescribeIT® Features

  • Patient-directed. Prescriptions are transmitted directly to a patient’s pharmacy of choice.
  • Deferred transmission. If patients are unsure which pharmacy they want to go to, or if their pharmacy of choice is not PrescribeIT® enabled, a copy of the prescription is sent to PrescribeIT® without being directed to a particular pharmacy. The prescription information can be retrieved by a PrescribeIT®-enabled pharmacy when the patient presents the authoritative paper copy of the prescription containing a unique barcode. Non-PrescribeIT®-enabled pharmacies can simply use the paper copy of the prescription as they would normally.
  • Rx dispense notification. Rx dispense notifications are sent to EMRs when a PrescribeIT® medication or non-medication order has been received and processed through a pharmacy system.
  • Rx dispense cancel notification. In the event a prescription delivered through PrescribeIT® is not picked up by the patient and is cancelled in a pharmacy system, a cancel dispense notification will be sent to the prescriber’s EMR.
  • Prescription Cancel. Prescribers can cancel a prescription that has been electronically transmitted from an EMR to a specific pharmacy through PrescribeIT®. Upon receiving a cancel prescription message, the pharmacy can send one of three responses back to the prescriber depending on the action the pharmacy has been taken on the prescription.
