April 13, 2022Ken Hodel

Q. How can I find the right DME e-prescribe system for my company?  A. Introduction of new software or processes at any company requires careful consideration. Here are four questions to think about when researching which DME e-prescribe platform is best for your business.  Will it cause more work?   Nobody wants to implement a “swivel chair” process where your company’s resources have to transcribe the data from the DME e-prescribe platform to your company’s...

E-prescribing: Stand up to scrutiny

March 9, 2022Ken Hodel

Q. How will using an e-prescribe platform impact operations? A.

January 12, 2022Ken Hodel

Q. What is an e-prescribe platform?  A. Electronic prescribing of medications and lab tests has been a part of the health care ecosystem for almost 20 years. It has been proven to improve quality of care, reduce errors, increase efficiency and lower administrative costs. However, these results have yet to be broadly replicated in the DME industry. In the past, e-prescribe for DME was largely focused on electronic transmission of data and documentation with little concern for the accuracy...
