iPrescribe makes prescribing painless - eliminating phone calls, faxes, and paper prescriptions. It works with (or without) any EHR - e-prescribing doesn't have to be bound to your EHR.

A must-have e-prescribing app for all doctors, nurse practitioners, dentists, and other prescribers; iPrescribe gives you the freedom to write and renew prescriptions whenever and wherever you need to. Prescribe your way, on your schedule, because you're not always in front of a computer.

Note: you must successfully complete identity proofing with your NPI number and/or DEA number to prescribe medications from iPrescribe.

A digital prescription pad makes it easy
Manage patients with ease. Search for drugs quicker. Send prescriptions faster. Ditch your paper prescription pad!

With iPrescribe you avoid long calls with the pharmacy and can forget faxing prescriptions. Go digital with iPrescribe to instantly send prescriptions to any pharmacy.

Improve medication adherence by making it more convenient for your patients to pick up their meds, prevent the risk of lost paper prescriptions, eliminate illegible scripts, and streamline the prescribing process for you and your staff.

Use iPrescribe to supplement your EHR
Already have an EHR? No problem! Make the switch to safer, faster prescribing by using iPrescribe when you’re away from your EHR. With PDMP access, med history checks, and clinical alerts it is safer for your patients for you to prescribe through iPrescribe than a phone call. Also, there's a record that you sent the prescription (unlike a phone call) and iPrescribe security ensures it's you sending the prescription in, not a fraudulent party.

Whether you are using Allscripts, Practice Fusion, eClinicalWorks, athenahealth, CareCloud, Dentrix, or any other electronic health record system, iPrescribe is the perfect companion for your EHR.

Used to be great

Updates are supposed to make an app better
-this is a free app and I hate to complain but perhaps it will help the developers make change.
-Lately I’m having to prove I’m not a robot every time I open the app which can be up to 50 times a day. I have a busy practice and having to do that every 2 minutes is beyond frustrating. At least have something in place that remembers the device after I proved 2 minutes ago that I wasn’t a robot. I understand the need for security, but I already have to re-enter my password every time anyways.
-the above I try to tolerate but at least every other day the app goes completely white and I either have to delete and reinstall the app or turn off my device for it to work again

Developer Response ,

Thanks for taking the time to leave us this feedback. We will have a new version out very soon that will greatly improve your log in experience.

Needs a serious overhaul

Edit to reflect recent update: App has not worked since it was recently updated. I have tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it, updated my phone, reached out to support (with no response) and it adds every prescription to “pending” but will never send the prescription - even if you sign and approve it. Please fix this app! It is unusable now at this point.

Please please please fix the app. The website is not user friendly, so the prescribers in our office all rely on the app. The most significant problem is that when you DC a med, it keeps showing up in the patient’s active medication list. You can try over and over to discontinue the medication but it won’t disappear from their medication list. Another issue is how many reports and complaints we get from pharmacies and patients that the prescription never actually goes through despite it looking like is was successfully sent on our end. These are major issues and we have tried to submit help requests with these issues without response.

Developer Response ,

Sorry that you are facing issue with Pending. We have fixed this issue in the latest version available in the App store. Please update and if the issue still persists, please reach out to us directly at iPrescribe@drfirst.com

It’s getting worse instead of better.

I used to give this app 4 stars in my mind - it had a great promise with lots of useful features, albeit why some rough edges here and there, but very acceptable for a free software, and the staff was very responsive.

Abut a year later it is getting more cumbersome in some areas (e.g. pharmacy selection), neglected in others, worse in yet others (you have to do manual login with CAPTCHA many times daily instead of using face login), useless features abound (E.g. stubbornly intrusive useless messages about “medication not covered, patient cost $0.00”) and gone are the days of getting response from a concerned staff member. (Dave G is gone, apparently). The “how are we doing” feature of the app with the box where one can send messages to the developers with promise to getting back to you is for show only,I can attest to that.

But it is free so far, and it’s hard to beat. If they are thinking about making it a paid app, that’s gonna be the moment when I switch.
