Allscripts ePrescribe prescribing solution integrates with Google Health

AllscriptsMisys Healthcare Solutions : 19 September, 2008  (New Product)
The Allscripts ePrescribe web-based electronic prescribing solution has gone live with Google Health.
The solution is offered free of charge to every physician in the USA 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 provides physicians with a new means of sharing their patient's medication history securely over the Internet with their patients via Google Health.

'Allscripts ePrescribe with Google Health has definitely made a positive impact on our practice,' said Derek J Kelly, MD, chief medical officer of Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago. 'It is so easy to provide this added service with a simple click of a mouse. The potential for reduction of medication errors can't be ignored. And my patients finally have a tool that gives them an organized pathway to heath literacy and the sharing of responsibility for their health care. I would advise every physician to consider using this solution.'

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 and can be found at The relationship with Allscripts allows patients to securely transfer their medication history, allergies, and conditions from their physician's Allscripts ePrescribe application to the patient's Google Health account.

'Allscripts views our partnership with Google as another way to improve communication between physicians and their patients,' said Glen Tullman, chief executive officer of Allscripts and Co-Chair of NEPSI. '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.'

If a patient has a physician who uses the Allscripts ePrescribe solution, they can ask for a secure personal identification number (PIN) 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 patient is able to securely import their medication history, allergies and conditions into their Google Health Account.
