“We believe MDToolbox has emerged as a leader in e-Prescribing solutions by offering one of the only ONC HIT 2014 Edition certified e-Prescribing modules that is designed to integrate with other health information systems,” said Michael Conner, Director of Business Development at MDToolbox. “We understand that meeting all of the Meaningful Use Stage 2 criteria is a big task for EHRs, and many are still struggling with challenging areas such as e-Prescribing. MDToolbox focuses on offering solutions that help our partners save time and money, without having to compromise usability and patient care, and therefore offering a certified e-Rx module was an obvious choice. We are committed to providing innovative and easy to integrate solutions that not only meet, but exceed national standards for increasing patient care.”
