To the Tech-Minded Physician on National Doctor’s Day, We Thank You

By Sandra Rodriguez, PR Manager, Surescripts

We know that sometimes the same things that are keeping patients up at night are keeping their doctors up, too. Did their patients pick up their prescriptions? Are they following their care plan? Are they in pain? Without the right tools in place, a provider’s hands can be tied.

In celebration of National Doctor’s Day, doctors and IT leaders share how technology is helping them improve provider workflows, deliver better care and better serve the needs of their patients. Hear from Dr. Todd Smith, Vice President & Chief Medical Information Officer of HealthEast Care System, Debbie Young, IT Project Manager of Signature Medical Group, and Dr. Bradford Croft of East Flagstaff Family Medicine as they share how e-prescribing technologies are making a difference at their organizations.

From the doctors who have embraced electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS) to keep patients safe and address opioid abuse, to those who are utilizing electronic prior authorization to ensure that patients have the medications they need without delay, and to the doctors using our National Record Locator Service to locate patient records, we thank you for your dedication to improving care, quality and the patient experience.
