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.

E-prescribing: Stand up to scrutiny

March 9, 2022Ken Hodel

Q. How will using an e-prescribe platform impact operations? A. As the DME industry pursues a more active role in driving the adoption of DME e-prescribe, it is crucial that all DME providers educate themselves on what platforms are available to them, and how adoption of them may impact their own operations. A “true” DME e-prescribe platform assists the referral source in electronically delivering a complete, accurate, billable and refillable order to a DME provider, often removing...

E-prescribing: Eliminate friction 

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.
