American Academy of Pediatrics Recommends e-Rx. WRS Concurs.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently released a policy statement recommending that pediatric healthcare providers adopt e-prescribing. It cited the potential to improve quality and reduce harm in pediatric healthcare.

“Electronic prescribing (e-prescribing) is widely recognized as a component of the care process that improves quality and reduces costs by facilitating handoffs, improving clinical decision-making, and potentially improving medication adherence,”  said the AAP policy statement published in Pediatrics.

WRS concurs. E-prescribing and pediatric-specific content and functionalities are integrated in the WRS Pediatric EMR.
In its statement, the AAP identified several capabilities e-prescribing systems should include.  The Waiting Room Solutions Pediatric EMR includes the recommended capabilities below.

  • Pediatric-specific medication catalogs
  • Pediatric decision support
  • Ingredient amount-to-volume conversions for liquid medications
  • Pediatric drug information
  • Formulation options
  • Drug interaction and allergy checking

Our Pediatric EMR has achieved certification through a rigorous testing process for functionality and security.  Waiting Room Solutions 2011 Waiting Room Solutions Web Based EHR and Practice Management System 4.0 is a CCHT Certified® 2011 Ambulatory EHR, additionally certified for Child Health.
