California Association of Orthodontists, representing nearly 1,500 orthodontists, endorsed iCoreConnect’s electronic prescribing software, iCoreRx.
With cloud-based, HIPAA-compliant iCoreRx e-Prescribing software, California orthodontists can prescribe all medications, including controlled substances, from any location and device.
Doctors can check patient medication history from 1 to 5 years back and quickly select medication and dosage information through a comprehensive Lexicomp digital drug reference.
In 2018, the California Legislature passed AB 2789, creating a state-level mandate that all prescriptions be transmitted electronically by Jan. 1, 2022. The law applies to all health care practitioners and almost all prescriptions, with very few exceptions.
“CoreRx is more than a cost-savings for our members; it provides immediate access to important drug information and ensures accurate and secure prescription writing,” said Bahar Ghafouri, DDS, president of CAO. “Since the majority of the CAO members write very few prescriptions, iCoreRx allows practitioners to conveniently comply with the mandate without adding significant overhead costs.”
