Allscripts ePrescribe integration launched with Google Health

Allscripts, a provider of clinical software, has announced that its Allscripts ePrescribe integration has been launched with Google Health.

By CBR Staff Writer

The web-based electronic prescribing solution from Allscripts has been offered free of charge to every physician in America via the National ePrescribing Patient Safety Initiative (NEPSI), of which Allscripts is a national co-sponsor. Google is the search sponsor of NEPSI.

The integration between Allscripts and Google products helps physicians with a new means of sharing their patients’ medication history over the internet with their patients through Google Health.

According to Allscripts, Google Health is a new product that allows users to store, organize, and manage their medical records securely online. The product is free to patients and partners who integrate. The relationship with Allscripts allows patients to transfer their medication history, allergies, and conditions from their physician’s Allscripts ePrescribe application to the patient’s Google Health account.

If a patient has a physician who uses the Allscripts ePrescribe solution, they can ask for a secure personal identification number from their physician to establish a sharing link between the physician’s Allscripts ePrescribe solution and Google Health. Once the sharing relationship is established, the patients can import their medication history, allergies and conditions into their Google Health Account, said Allscripts.

Glen Tullman, CEO of Allscripts and co-chair of NEPSI, said: Allscripts views our partnership with Google as another way to improve communication between physicians and their patients. This relationship makes it possible for our physicians to create an electronic dialogue with thousands of their patients and provide them with their medication information online. We believe this will enhance the quality of care and could help to prevent potentially harmful drug interactions that injure millions of people each year.
