We have talked with a number of hospice partners and compiled a list of the top 3 problems that come with third-party ePrescribes. Do any of these sound like issues that you face? If so, BetterRX can help!
Latency in medication orders
Do you deal with medication delays? A lot of hospices unfortunately do. Often times, hospices have noticed a huge delay in pharmacies being sent or having received medication orders. This leads to a cycle of entering medications in multiple times, and sometimes the pharmacies never even receiving the medication orders. These delays lead to needless patient suffering.
Extra work for nurses and staff
Let’s talk about how third party ePrescribes add on the workload for nurses and staff. First we’ll start with a question. Does your EMR connect with your ePrescribe? If you said ‘no’, you’re not alone. In addition to that, more work is accumulated by third parties requiring you to have a login/password for their sites. If that wasn’t enough, some ePrescribes will even make nurses enter NDC codes to order medications. Across the board, it’s way more work than it needs to be.
There's little to no communication going on
Do you find yourself scratching your head wondering where your medications are that you ordered? This is a common issue a lot of hospice staff face because no notifications are given once medication orders have been placed or received by the pharmacy. Nurses will have to call and make sure that the orders have been received and also follow-up with the status so they know when it will be ready. As a last resort, some prescribers will even default to written scripts if the third party ePrescribe fails to send the order.
