Modernizing Medical Spas with Electronic Prescribing: The Aesthetic Record eRX Advantage
In the ever-evolving world of Aesthetics and specifically the growing competition in the medical spa space, efficiency, accuracy, and patient satisfaction are paramount. We’ve entered an era with tools like Chat GPT and AI, and patients expect an intersection of technology and healthcare with everything from online booking to automated appointment reminders. We’ve leveraged the power of our software to provide innovative solutions to our Aesthetic Record customers, one of which is electronic prescribing, commonly known as e-prescribing or eRX. eRX has proven to be a game-changer in many healthcare sectors for a myriad of reasons, and the medical spa industry is no exception as the growing list of services become a bigger blend of medical and aesthetic offerings. Medical spas are known for providing a variety of cosmetic and aesthetic services, such as energy devices, toxin injections, dermal fillers, and threads. These services often require medications, and prescribing medications can be a time-consuming and error-prone process. That’s where an electronic prescription system can help.
How can Aesthetic Record’s eRX Platform can Benefit Your Medical Aesthetic Practice?
E-prescribing is the modern method of generating and sending prescription orders instantly and with visibility throughout the process. It replaces traditional paper-based prescriptions with a more efficient, accurate, and seamless digital process. At Aesthetic Record, we’ve integrated eRX directly into our patient charting system, making it a one-stop solution for all your prescribing needs. You can enroll and begin sending prescriptions in minutes, all without ever leaving your AR dashboard. Here are a few ways Aesthetic Record’s eRX platform can benefit your Med spa:
The Power of Seamless Integration
A key advantage of Aesthetic Record’s eRX service is its seamless integration into the patient chart. This eliminates the need to visit an external program or website, significantly reducing the time spent on prescription-related tasks. For instance, if a staff member prepares a prescription, the prescriber can easily review, approve, and send it to the patient’s chosen pharmacy with a few clicks. This greatly streamlines the process, making it more efficient and less prone to errors. Additionally, it means that a prescription can be sent to the pharmacy without calling it in, without a prescriber onsite to sign a paper prescription, without leaving a signed prescription pad laying around, and without a patient physically coming into the practice to pick it up.
Time Savings and Improved Efficiency
Time is a precious commodity in the fast-paced environment of a medical spa. AR’s eRX technology reduces the time healthcare providers spend on verifying and writing prescriptions and eliminates the need to leave your EMR interface. With AR’s eRX platform, you can access pre-populated, commonly prescribed dosages for a particular prescription. You can also save your most frequently prescribed drugs and dosages for easy recall. Moreover, it eliminates the need for manual data entry, a process often riddled with potential for human error. When it comes to compounding, you can save your proprietary compounds and easily add it to the next patient’s orders. With the automated nature of e-prescribing, medical spas can increase their operational efficiency, allowing practitioners to spend more time on patient care and less on administrative tasks.
Reducing Errors and Increasing Accuracy
Patient safety is a top priority in any healthcare setting, and medical spas are no exception. Handwritten prescriptions have long been a source of medication errors due to illegible handwriting, incorrect dosage entry, or miscommunication between healthcare providers and pharmacies. E-prescribing eliminates these issues, as everything is clearly typed and directly transmitted to the pharmacy. This leads to improved patient safety, as the chance of a misunderstanding or error is greatly reduced. In the event there is confusion, pharmacies can communicate directly with the prescriber within the eRX portal. Furthermore, the eRX platform contains a drug database where you can research a particular drug and automatically check for drug interactions. This can help to prevent adverse drug events and ensure that patients receive safe and effective treatment.
Enhancing Patient Experience
E-prescribing also enhances the overall patient experience by modernizing additional aspects of your high-touch practice. With eRX, prescriptions are automatically sent to the pharmacy, saving patients the extra step of delivering a physical prescription. If the prescriber is not on site, no worries! Any staff member can queue the prescription for the patient and when the prescriber has a moment, he or she can log in, approve it, and send. The Patient doesn’t have to wait or work around the clinic’s schedule for pick-up. This convenience means that patients can head to the pharmacy to pick up their prescriptions, making their treatment process smoother and more efficient.
The Aesthetic Record ERX Advantage
While there are numerous e-prescribing options on the market, the eRX service provided by Aesthetic Record stands out for its affordability and accessibility. We believe in providing high-quality, convenient solutions without breaking the bank, and our eRX service aligns perfectly with this philosophy. With 5 free users per prescriber, it’s easy to get the right staff into the system without additional fees. With 2 plan options, six months or 1 year, we are able to offer the lowest eRX subscription prices available on the market. When it comes to convenience, because the AR eRX platform is integrated with the patient’s chart, anytime you send a prescription to the pharmacy, a record of that prescription is stored in the Document Repository for future reference. Once a patient is added inside of AR, their relevant contact information populates inside the eRX system so you can eliminate manually typing it in, saving time and eliminating potential errors.
Is eRX Right For Your Practice?
To sum it up, the adoption of eRX in the medical spa industry is a powerful tool for enhancing productivity, accuracy, and patient satisfaction. Aesthetic Record’s integrated, affordable eRX service offers a unique, cost-effective solution designed to streamline your practice’s operations and elevate the patient experience. If you’ve been waiting to bring on an eRX solution or it’s become cumbersome to coordinate schedules for paper prescriptions with patients and providers, don’t wait! Enrolling providers in eRx is a smart choice for medical spas who are providing any services or treating adverse events that may require a prescription. By leveraging the power of technology, medical spas can streamline their prescribing process and deliver high-quality care to their patients.
