Electronic Prescribing, a computer-based means of communication, provides a solution to the challenges that many retail pharmacies are facing today with the increasing volume of prescriptions and shortages in pharmacists.
Reduce the risk of errors associated with illegible prescriptions.
Eliminate Patient Wait Time
Have a patient prescription ready by the time the patient arrives at the pharmacy. Electronic prescriptions can flow directly into BCS's pharmacy management software prescription processing queue.
Provide Quality Patient Care
Speed up the prescription refill process by eliminating the time your pharmacy staff spends phoning or faxing refill requests, allowing your staff more time to provide patient care.
BCS works with SureScripts, ProxyMed, WebMD and RxNT to establish electronic communication between physicians and pharmacists and to provide a secure network for exchanging prescription information.
It was announced at the 2005 NCPA conference that only 5% of independent pharmacies have registered to receive electronic prescriptions, while the majority of large chain pharmacies have already registered. Pharmacies who aggressively encourage e-prescribing with high prescribing physicians in their areas will begin driving more volume.
To support our goal of improving patient safety, BCS does not charge a monthly fee for our software nor do we charge any software setup or maintenance fees. In fact, the average BCS pharmacy that has registered to receive electronic prescriptions, spends less than five dollars per month on e-Prescribe transaction fees.

With BCS, you can register for free to begin receiving electronic prescriptions from SureScripts, Emdeon (formerly WebMD), or both.
