Curve Dental has enhanced the functionality of ePrescribe, the module in the Curve Cloud Platform that enables dental practitioners to send a new prescription or renewal to pharmacies from any digital device, including smartphones and tablets. The update includes three prescribing options:
- ePrescribe: designed to manage electronic prescriptions with ease
- iPrescribe: designed for writing and sending prescriptions from mobile devices
- PDMP: designed to ensure compliance with state Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) registration for Electronic Prescriptions for Controlled Substances (EPCS)
Customers now can use the ePrescribe module to streamline their prescription writing and reduce prescribing errors using the SmartSuite feature, according to the company. SmartSuite is designed to minimize the need to search for drugs by displaying commonly prescribed medications with complete sig based on historical prescribing behaviors.
Acknowledging the severity of the opioid crisis in the United States, Curve Dental designed the PDMP interface to help dental offices stay in compliance with state mandates, reducing manual and redundant steps by office staff. It also helps customers stay current with individual state mandates as they become law without draining office resources, the company says.
“Our combined EPCS and PDMP solution streamlines workflow and dramatically reduces the time it takes to check patient prescription history, document the PDMP check, and complete the electronic prescription. It also helps eliminate the possibility of human error throughout the process,” said Gary Long, Curve Dental’s chief revenue officer.
