Yes, when you log-in for the first time, if you enable Patient Finder iPrescribe will automatically search our databases to find and import your patients! If we don’t find all of your patients, you can easily add them.
Existing users can access Patient Finder from the main dashboard by tapping the menu icon in the top left corner, tapping Settings, and tapping Patient Finder.
iPrescribe can be used in conjunction with any EMR. Given that we use the Surescripts network (used by most EMRs) any prescription you send from iPrescribe is likely to appear in the patient’s Medical History inside your EMR.
An additional integration feature we offer is Auto Fax, which will automatically send a non-fillable copy of the prescription to your office fax machine for those who use paper records.
