IntakeQ Debuts Medical

IntakeQ and its PracticeQ practice management system, which includes best-in-class customizable intake forms and software for healthcare, today announced the launch of electronic medical prescribing (e-prescribing) within its PracticeQ platform for clinicians in the United States. The new feature is made possible through a direct integration with ScriptSure Cloud ERX (ScriptSure) on the Surescripts platform.

“Integrated solutions like e-prescribing help providers save time by enabling them to remain on a single familiar platform,” said Keith Pirkle, general manager of IntakeQ. “Our primary goal is to create a secure, integrated and affordable platform that any allied health or medical professional can use to help their practice succeed. This collaboration with an esteemed partner like ScriptSure affirms our commitment to elevating the standard of care through technology. Ultimately, alongside the clinicians we serve, we are elated to enable this integrated and enhanced capability that will do what matters most: deliver a seamless patient experience.”

Integrated prescribing provides several benefits including

  • Improved patient safety with a reduction in prescription errors and checks for medication interactions
  • Elimination of CMS e-prescribing penalties
  • Formulary compliance and reduced costs for patients
  • Single-click access to First Databank (FDB) and Prescriber’s Digital Reference (PDR) drug information
  • Saved time through direct integration in PracticeQ
  • Validated and error-free prescriptions, including controlled substances

Pirkle added, “Our customers help drive the direction of IntakeQ and PracticeQ’s continued evolution in relation to technology and partnerships. We never see our software as complete in an ever-changing healthcare landscape. Listening to our customers, advisory board and our employees is our north star and our inspiration for continued development and innovation.”

ScriptSure Cloud ERX is a 10-time winner of the Surescripts network White Coat Award, and most recently, the recipient of the 2022 Surescripts White Coat Award™ for highest accuracy of prescription transactions.

In May, MEDITECH announced that Humber River Health in Toronto, ON, will be MEDITECH's first hospital in Canada to implement PrescribeIT® within the Expanse EHR and is expected to go live with the technology this fall. "The introduction of e-prescribing in Canada is transformative. This integration with DrFirst Healthcare Innovations will further our collaboration with Canada Health Infoway and PrescribeIT® and ultimately provides safer and more efficient healthcare delivery, as well as greater convenience for patients," said Robert Molloy, MEDITECH Director, Canadian Market and Product Strategy.
