myAvatar e-Prescribing Software
Medication can be a vital part of a client’s treatment. Yet with the number of prescriptions growing (an average of five percent per year), there are ever-increasing possibilities for errors involving prescription medications. Plus, pharmacists are forced to make more than 150 million “call backs” regarding the clarification of prescription information. Whether it involves improperly identifying complications with side effects, or simply not being able to read a doctor’s handwriting, can you afford to take that risk?
myAvatar e-Prescribing software, powered by InfoScriber, is a secure, Web-based prescribing and medication management system. The system can be utilized anywhere there is access to the Internet via an Internet Explorer browser. Thus, physicians can instantly have their patients’ medication information wherever they are (whether they are in the office or on-call at home).
The myAvatar e-Prescribing software improves the quality of care and reduces medication errors. The electronic creation and transmission of medication orders from the user’s desktop computer to any pharmacy reduces the possibility of a misread prescription by a pharmacist.
