PrescribeIT® is a national EMR-integrated electronic prescribing service that integrates seamlessly into existing workflows and enables prescribers to create and send prescriptions electronically to a patient’s pharmacy of choice.
Why use PrescribeIT®?
Infoway recently reached agreements with Loblaw Companies Limited (Loblaw) and Rexall Pharmacy Group Limited (Rexall) to advance ePrescribing in Canada. Loblaw will work toward connecting its Shoppers Drug Mart, Loblaw retail pharmacies and QHR Technologies’ AccuroEMR® to PrescribeIT®, Infoway’s national e-prescribing service, while Rexall will offer PrescribeIT® in more than 250 of its pharmacies across Canada.
The following video features the eHealth Centre of Excellence's Managing Director Dr. Mohamed Alarakhia, who uses PrescribeIT® in his own clinical practice:
A lot of times we would have fax failures…and this just added time to my workday and my workflow…So I needed a reliable solution that ensured that my prescription went through to the pharmacy. [...] This was a really easy workflow integration for me. The only difference here, though, is instead of hitting the fax button, I hit the e-sign and send [using a send button].
Canada Health Infoway is working with Health Canada, the provinces, territories, and industry stakeholders to create a multi-jurisdiction e-prescribing service known as PrescribeIT®. This service, which is available to all prescribers, pharmacists and Canadians, is being scaled for use across the country.
The eHealth Centre of Excellence has partnered with Canada Health Infoway to deploy PrescribeIT® across the Waterloo Wellington region, supporting primary care providers with sign-up and integration of the service into their practice.
