pocCoral Springs, Florida – (February 10, 2014) – NewCrop, the leading provider of healthcare electronic prescribing services, has selected Point-of-Care Partners’ ePrescribing State Law Review to help the company stay abreast of the ever-changing ePrescribing regulatory landscape. Point-of-Care Partners, a national health information technology (HIT) strategy and management consulting firm, has published the State Law Review since 2006 as a means to simplify ePrescribing regulatory compliance for stakeholders and to facilitate the adoption of ePrescribing and related electronic transactions.

Point-of-Care Partners’ ePrescribing State Law Review is a succinct yet comprehensive data set that provides a regularly updated analysis of state and federal rules, regulations and statutes governing electronic prescriptions. The ePrescribing State Law Review is designed to help electronic health record vendors and health information service companies avoid sanctions or other problems that may delay implementations and cause pharmacies to reject electronic prescriptions, or create tensions between them and their
provider customers.

“The Law Review will help NewCrop keep track of the expansive ePrescribing landscape and provide added intelligence to ensure that our business rules reflect the most current state of the ePrescribing industry, said Lawrence Susnow, MD, CEO, NewCrop. “This is another important tool that helps us provide a positive patient experience from the physician office to the pharmacy.”

Point-of-Care Partners employs pharmacists and other legal or clinical experts who execute a valid research and review methodology to ensure that ePrescribing State Law Review remains a best-in-class resource and the company works with pharmacy boards to elicit clarifications when rulesor regulations don’t specifically address innovative features and functionality of ePrescribing software or services.

“The regulatory landscape for ePrescribing is constantly changing at the federal and state levels. These changes impact ePrescribing product delivery and customer relations. We are delighted to provide NewCrop with intelligence to maintain its tradition of service excellence, particularly as the industry expands its use of the ePrescribing transaction,” said Tony Schueth, Point-of-Care Partner’s CEO and managing partner.
