California Association of Orthodontists Endorse iCoreRx by iCoreConnect
WINDERMERE, Fla., Jan. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iCoreConnect, Inc. (OTCQB: ICCT), a cloud-based, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform for healthcare business workflow, today announced the California Association of Orthodontists' (CAO) endorsement of iCoreConnect's electronic prescribing solution, iCoreRx.
The CAO has been representing California orthodontists since its founding in 1967 and represents nearly 1,500 members. With cloud-based, HIPAA-compliant iCoreRx e-Prescribing software, California orthodontists can securely prescribe all medications, including controlled substances, from any location and device. Doctors can check patient medication history from one-to-five years back, and quickly select medication and dosage information through a comprehensive Lexicomp digital drug reference.
In 2018, the California Legislature passed AB 2789, creating a state-level mandate that all prescriptions be transmitted electronically by Jan. 1, 2022. The law applies to all health care practitioners and almost all prescriptions, with very few exceptions.
"The benefits of iCoreRx are already being experienced by dentists across the vast state of California and we’ve wasted no time expanding into the orthodontic field,” commentd iCoreConnect's President and CEO, Robert McDermott. “iCoreRx eliminates multiple disconnected steps in the prescription writing process. The CAO members now have access to a streamlined and more secure way of serving their patients. We look forward to expanding our partnerships with orthodontic associations across the United States.”
"iCoreRx is more than a cost-savings for our members, it provides immediate access to important drug information and ensures accurate and secure prescription writing," added Dr. Bahar Ghafouri, the President of the CAO. "Since the majority of the CAO members write very few prescriptions, iCoreRx allows practitioners to conveniently comply with the mandate without adding significant overhead costs."
