Medical Transcription Billing, Corp (MTBC), a leading provider of proprietary, healthcare information technology solutions recently announced the release of its electronic prescribing (ePrescribing) app for the Apple Watch.

This will be one of the first ePrescribing smartwatch apps available to US healthcare providers.

The app will extend key components of MTBC’s existing ePrescribing app for iPhone users, known as MTBC iRx, to the Apple Watch.

Users of the Apple Watch app can view patient refill request alerts and inbound patient communications on the Watch and then leverage iRx to authorise refills, write new prescriptions, access patients’ medication histories and clinical support decision tools.

“Our clients continue to be on the forefront of leveraging technology to streamline care and optimise health outcomes,” said President at MTBC, Stephen Snyder.

“Extending components of our highly-ranked mHealth and web-based ecosystem of applications to smartwatches marks an exciting evolution of our platform and we plan to build on this momentum in the year to come as we continue to extend the reach of our broader platform to smartwatches and other wearable technology,” continued Snyder.

MTBC’s Apple Watch app is the latest addition to its mHealth suite, which includes seven other apps. The most recently released app prior to MTBC’s ePrescribing Apple Watch app was its ICD-10 converter app, which MTBC says quickly seized and maintained the rank of the most “popular” ICD-10 apps available in the Apple iTunes store.
