One of the core objectives of meaningful use is e-prescribing. The objective is to generate and transmit permissible prescriptions electronically (eRx). The measure requires more than 40 percent (50 percent for Stage 2 Measure) of all permissible prescriptions written by the eligible professional are transmitted electronically using certified EHR technology. Xcite Health’s EHR is certified to send electronic prescriptions with Surescripts. Using our cloud-based electronic health record technology, practices can increase patient satisfaction and qualify for federal, state, and local incentive programs.
