Veradigm to Discuss Requirements at the 2019 Dentrix Business of Dentistry Conference Aug 22-24

Join Veradigm at booth #4 (across from the Henry Schein One® Booth) at the Dentrix Business of Dentistry Conference at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, NV on Aug 22-24, and let us take three minutes to bring you up to speed on the latest regulatory requirements related to e-prescribing for dental prescribers that go into effect in the near future. These regulations will soon require every prescriber of controlled substances to electronically prescribe them, but as those joining us in Las Vegas will discover, Dentrix and Veradigm have dentists covered.

The Dentrix Business of Dentistry Conference, by Henry Schein One, is one of the industry’s premier events for dental professionals to learn how to drive improvement for their practice marketing, patient communication, revenue cycle management, multi-location management and more. As a Gold Sponsor at the conference, Veradigm is proud to be a close partner of Henry Schein One, powering electronic prescribing within Dentrix practice management software through our Veradigm ePrescribe technology.

More than 80% of prescriptions are electronically prescribed, and it’s easy to see why. Electronic prescribing, like that within the Dentrix platform, can help dental prescribers save time and improve prescribing accuracy vs paper, and can also enable electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS), electronic processing of Prior Authorizations (electronic Prior Authorization or ePA). Dental professionals may seek out free e-prescribing for dentists or other standalone solutions without knowing that a leading solution from a provider with more than two decades as an innovator in e-prescribing is already available within Dentrix.

To help combat inappropriate prescribing of opioids, regulatory agencies have announced plans to enhance the safety and appropriateness of controlled substances prescribing nationwide by requiring all such prescriptions to be electronically prescribed starting in January 2021. Stop by our booth for a demonstration of how Veradigm ePrescribe can help Dentrix users get ahead of the curve by e-prescribing controlled substances today – we look forward to seeing you there!
