MDScripts announces that it will be submitting prescription drug monitoring reports electronically to the State of Arizona beginning October 1st, 2009. As in several other states, physicians dispensing medications using the MDScripts platform will have their reporting submitted automatically on a weekly basis.
Theo Antoniou, president of Cranking Software, says "Several other providers of dispensing systems require the end users to submit the reports. This is because they don't want to assume any liability for missing or incorrect reporting. We have the exact opposite approach. We feel that the most accurate and consistent method of reporting is for us to do it collectively. A process that requires a physician's practice to do anything once a week will fail."
Antoniou goes on to say, "Requiring each practice to run a report, then submit it each week is such a huge waste of time. Our script that generates the reports for Arizona does all the practices at once and takes 15 seconds to complete. People submitting manually or by paper forms are stuck in the last century. Might as well hand out candles and fountain pens with their systems."
Looking forward, MDScripts welcomes the changes to the ASAP 2005 format for the State of California CURES monitoring program starting November 1st, 2009. After that, the next milestone will be getting the State of Florida to implement its reporting program that was just approved by their state government.
