substances can be e-Prescribed. In fact, mov- ing every prescription in your practice to this same, unified process can speed your entire operation for all the reasons we’ve discussed.
FULL PATIENT PRESCRIPTION HISTORY
A comprehensive e-Prescribing solution uses exact identifiers from your EHR, to show you every medication and dose dispensed to your patient by 99 percent of U.S. pharmacies. This even includes patients you are seeing for the very first time.
HYPER-QUICK SEARCHES FOR DRUG INFORMATION
If you pay for a Lexicomp® online subscrip- tion (or still use the book), you can cancel that $300-$500 bill. A comprehensive e-Prescribing cloud software includes an already built-in-rapid-search Lexicomp® drug directory. Access brand versus generic comparisons, dosing, complex interactions, discontinued drugs, etc.
SINGLE-CLICK ACCESS TO A FUTURE STATE PDMP
The national average duration to access a state Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) website is more than four minutes and 50 clicks. However, a comprehensive e-Prescribing cloud software that is properly integrated to your EHR can reduce this time to one or two clicks. While Missouri still has not passed legislation to implement a PDMP, one does exist in St. Louis County, and legis- lation continues to be pursued each year in the State Legislature.
HUMAN-ASSISTED SETUP, REGISTRATION AND SUPPORT
Pursue an e-Prescribing solution that assigns a person as your project manager at no addi- tional charge. And, your subscription should include real-time customer support.
In conclusion, e-Prescribing laws—and the effects of a potential statewide PDMP— bring not only a much-needed step to fight prescription drug abuse, but an incredible opportunity for the dental community to speed up workflow while protecting patients.
Though it can be a little counterintuitive, recognizing the actual number of minutes consumed at every step of the current paper prescribing process is key to unlocking the value of staff and doctor time in your prac- tice. f

EDITOR’S NOTE: Electronic prescriptions became Missouri law on August 28, 2019, described in Statute 195.550 (revisor.mo.gov/main/OneSection
. aspx?section=195.550). The MDA inquired with the State Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (BNDD) about the aspects of this new law. BNDD stated that while this is statute, the Bureau has not begun to draft rules, and has not received funding for the employees, applications and new database the Statute will require. The Bureau noted that although state regulatory processes needed to catch up to the federal regulation, in the future, the Statute indicates that should an individual violate the provisions and be subject to discipline, it would be by his or her professional licensing board (Missouri Dental Board), not the BNDD.
The MDA offers may ways members can experience outstanding discounts and promotions, as well as superior customer service on products for dentists and their teams.
