Exciting new functionality in Intrahealth’s Profile software for prescribers to transmit a prescription electronically between a prescriber’s electronic medical record and the pharmacy management system of a patient’s pharmacy of choice. A federal government sponsored service, PrescribeIT™ will protect Canadians’ personal health information from being sold or used for commercial activities.
A recently signed agreement with Canada Health Infoway means Intrahealth’s PrescribeIT™ service will be developed and certified by 2019 year-end and functional by early 2020. This e‑prescribing service is a perfect fit for our patient-first approach to using technology for reducing costs and improving convenience, while also enhancing services for the health care provider community. Electronic prescriptions will be sent directly to a patient’s chosen pharmacy — eliminating paper or faxed prescriptions — and making prescribing safer, easier, more secure, and more convenient.
