E*HealthLine's E*Prescribe, integrated with EMR or stand-alone prescription writer, provides physicians with point-of-care access for the transmission of prescriptions electronically to a patient's pharmacy of choice. E*HealthLine's E*Prescribe technology is a gateway for EMR software vendors, enabling an interface with their current applications and/or practice management systems and electronic health records.
