Prematics Partners with RxHub to Make Widespread Adoption of E-Prescribing a Reality

BETHESDA, Md. and ST. PAUL, Minn., June 20 - Prematics(TM), the provider of ScriptToneSM, the nation's first end-to-end, fully managed electronic prescribing service, today announced a partnership with RxHub®, the leader in connecting the prescribing industry for the exchange of patient-specific insurance and medication history information. The partnership combines RxHub's rich prescription database with Prematics' best-of-breed user-friendly service to drive mainstream adoption of electronic prescribing.

"By offering a complete service that is intuitive, fast, portable, secure and absolutely free to physicians, Prematics is breaking down barriers that have long prohibited the widespread adoption of electronic prescribing and, until now, limited the technology's use to less than 5% of physicians in the United States," said J.P. Little, Chief Operating Officer of RxHub. "Enabled by RxHub's real-time information delivery system, ScriptToneSM empowers physicians to provide the most clinically appropriate and cost-effective medication treatment for their patients. We are excited to be partnering with Prematics to transform the prescribing industry and enhance value for all its stakeholders."

ScriptToneSM is designed by physicians to be fast and easy to use. Unlike other companies that offer standalone e-prescribing software, ScriptToneSM delivers a comprehensive end-to-end service that includes an "intelligent" highly reliable network, 24x7 monitoring, and neighborhood-based physician support. ScriptToneSM uniquely leverages the RxHub infrastructure to provide a superior platform for delivering on the promise of RxHub.

"Since 2001, RxHub has worked tirelessly to create the necessary underlying infrastructure to make e-prescribing a reality," said Scott Puritz, CEO of Prematics. "ScriptToneSM is the only electronic prescribing service built from the ground up to harness the power of RxHub, allowing Prematics to deliver superior results, greater cost savings, and better quality outcomes."
