Two of Maryland's most innovative healthcare organizations have joined forces to give Maryland prescribers a mobile tool to efficiently access Maryland's Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) data from within the e-prescribing workflow. MedChi, The Maryland State Medical Society, has teamed with DrFirst, a Maryland-based leader in e-prescribing and medication management solutions to bring iPrescribeSM to prescribers using the PDMP data displayed to healthcare providers by Maryland's state-designated health information exchange, CRISP, who operates the state's PDMP. iPrescribe is the first mobile medication management app that allows physicians to comply with the Maryland mandate to consult the PDMP. MedChi and DrFirst are making iPrescribe available to Maryland prescribers free for the first year.
