Rochester, MI, & Boca Raton, FL, (December 6, 2017) — OptimizeRx Corp. (OTCQB: OPRX), the nation’s leading provider of digital health messaging via electronic health record (EHR) systems, announces a new initiative with Modernizing Medicine to help patients save money and be better educated about their prescriptions.
Modernizing Medicine provides a specialty-specific, data-driven and cloud-based EHR system to dermatologists, ophthalmologists, orthopedic surgeons, plastic surgeons, urologists, otolaryngologists and pain management specialists nationwide. Over 10,000 providers use Modernizing Medicine’s mobile EHR system, EMA™, including more than 40 percent of U.S. dermatologists.
Modernizing Medicine’s EHR system was recently ranked #1 on the Black Book™ Physician Practice and Ambulatory Solutions list of top EHR systems for six specialties, and EMA has been named the #1 dermatology EHR system for four consecutive years.
OptimizeRx services will operate seamlessly within the Modernizing Medicine EHR system workflow to notify health care providers (HCPs) of potential prescription savings and support information for their patients.
“HCPs using our EHR system should be able to better address two of the greatest challenges in healthcare: improving affordability of medications and encouraging greater adherence,” said Dr. Michael Sherling, Chief Medical & Strategy Officer of Modernizing Medicine. “In this way Modernizing Medicine continues to serve our clients by providing additional technology intended to increase practice efficiency and improve patient outcomes.”
OptimizeRx’s growing EHR and eRx network now reaches more than 500,000 HCPs in the U.S., making it the healthcare industry’s largest point-of-prescribe network.
Miriam Paramore, president of OptimizeRx, commented: “As a leader in specialty-specific EHR systems for thousands of HCPs, and consistently named a top-ranked EHR vendor, Modernizing Medicine further strengthens our network where our financial and brand messaging are distributed. We look forward to delivering our services through the interface with Modernizing Medicine’s award-winning EHR systems.”
OptimizeRx recently reported record net revenue in the third quarter of 2017, up 74% as compared to the same year-ago quarter, which was driven by growth in financial and brand messaging by new and returning clients. OptimizeRx expects the additional channel partner to enhance its reach, thereby supporting additional revenue growth.
