In the race for a digital healthcare world, the number of Electronic Medical Records and Electronic Health Records software companies has grown exponentially. Added to this growth is the myriad of Federal and State government healthcare software regulations, requirements, HIPAA changes, and interoperability mandates. With constantly evolving processes and requirements, it’s no wonder that many EMR and medical software companies have difficulty keeping up.

One component of an EMR – ePrescribing – is one of the most complex to manage. ePrescribing software must adhere to its own Federal and State ePrescribing regulations. Not to mention the complex reporting requirements like:

There is also a patient-centered component of ePrescribing. Ensuring their safety and improving their overall healthcare experience should be considerations in selecting the right platform.

As healthcare companies, Practice Management and Dental Service Organizations continue to digitize, ePrescribing is essential to ensuring prescriptions are reliable, safe, and manageable. Without having to recreate the wheel, EMR and healthcare software companies can utilize APIs to add ePrescribing functionality at the click of a button.

What is an API?

An application programming interface (API) is a way for two or more software programs to communicate with each other. In contrast to a user interface that connects a computer to a person, an application programming interface connects computers or pieces of software to each other.

An ePrescribing API can be used to integrate ePrescribing functionality with any EMR or medical software product.

EMRs, medical software companies and DSOs are essential to today’s healthcare world. With laws and regulations requiring electronic records systems, it is vital that healthcare organizations are using a system that meets all federal and state regulations. 

It is also important to understand what additional software can be integrated into these systems. Oftentimes, especially with EMRs, customers will want to tailor certain features or add additional functionality through APIs or embedded links. With ePrescribing APIs, EMRs can offer additional flexibility in the software so it can continue to grow and evolve as new technology continues to develop.

ePrescribing software has many advantages that save time, improve patient safety, and provide better tracking to monitor prescribing behavior.
