"I love this drug resource portal. You ask why? It is very user friendly and easy to maneuver around in. I like having the ability to either search for the drug in the search box or simply click on the letter that corresponds to the first letter in the drugs name. Once I have found the drug in question the real fun begins. The list of choices is excellent. if I am in need of patient information it is easily accessible. if I need patient assistance it is right there. If there are sample available , I can order right there. You see how easy that is! And of course as a provider all the information on the product I need for safe prescribing is at my fingertips. I love using this portal and generally go to it on a daily basis, sometimes 5-6 times a day. My patients also love the fact that all the forms are there ready for me to print for them, one click and I'm done. Everything is up to date with the most current drugs available and of course the most current recalls. Reliable, easy to use and with links to other resources, has and will continue to improve the quality of care I afford my patients." - Patricia Schroeder, APRN, FNP-C

e-Prescribe with MPR Contest

Congratulations to Dr. Robert Alvis, MD, winner of a new iPad in our e-Prescribe with MPR Contest!
We've launched an e-Prescribing platform for prescribers at no cost. Certified by Surescripts®, MPR's secure e-Prescribing platform can be accessed any time and anywhere you have Internet access.
Dr. Alvis says: "e-Prescribing with MPR is a godsend. I practice out of four dialysis units and one office. While the dialysis units are equipped with an EMR, there is no e-Prescribe capability. The mobility of the MPR system allows me to e-Prescribe easily while I am in any of the dialysis units."
