Greenway PrimeSUITE’s ePrescribing capabilities enable physicians to easily and securely send electronic prescriptions to the patient’s preferred pharmacy after confirming the prescription is on the patient’s formulary list and electronically process the refill request. Patient demographics, allergies and medication history are displayed with each inquiry to provide greater accuracy and efficiency to the prescription-filling process.
Integrated ePrescribing solution
Our integrated ePrescribing features enable PrimeSUITE users to submit electronic prescriptions to the patient’s preferred pharmacy. Prescriptions can be sent directly to the pharmacy from the point of care through PrimeSUITE.
Through ePrescribing, providers can also view and import the patient’s medication and prescription history as provided by pharmacy benefit management (PBM). The electronic prescription can also be checked against the patient’s formulary listing.
If a provider needs to access patient medication records remotely, our ePrescribing solution can also be accessed on a supported PDA or via a web browser. When a prescription is generated remotely, the medication is automatically synchronized with the PrimeSUITE medication list.

Benefits of ePrescribing
Studies have shown that ePrescribing will save physicians and care providers up to three hours a day. Physicians and care providers are able to see FDA safety alerts, the patient’s drug history, drug allergies and formulary requirements before drugs are prescribed. This is a proactive way to reduce errors as well as time spent pulling charts and communicating with pharmacies about handwriting inquiries, medication coverage and renewal authorizations.
Patients will have a much lower risk of physical harm due to paper prescription errors. ePrescribing reduces out-of-pocket costs with formulary messages. In addition, ePrescribing cuts time spent at the pharmacy since the pharmacy will have already received the electronic prescription prior to the patient’s arrival.
Physicians will also save time by not having to re-enter data for renewal requests because they are received electronically and the patient’s chart is automatically updated to reflect the refill. Customer relationships will also improve because prescriptions will be filled more quickly.
