Rx-Writer is e-Prescribing for the iPad… elegant & intuitive.

Dr. SarahL, “Best iPad Application for Physicians”… “This is the only reason that I love my iPad. It saves me at least 30-60 minutes every day I see patients.” “I am not much of a computer person. I avoid them whenever I can. My son gave me an iPad and suggested I look at Rx-Writer.”

Featured as “New & Noteworthy Medical Application” by Apple.

Rx-Writer securely faxes patients’ prescriptions directly from your iPad to pharmacies. Rx-Writer reduces your time spent writing, tracking, researching, and renewing prescriptions.
Renewing 10-12 prescriptions can take 10-30 minutes when written by hand, pausing to gather relevant prescribing information. With Rx-Writer this task can be accomplished in less than 5 seconds.

Rx-Writer is available as a FREE version allowing up to 250 patients, includes 30 complimentary fax pages, and free faxing for 60 days.

When is the last time you heard a colleague tell you how much he enjoys e-Prescribing?... or how much time he saves e-Prescribing? Rx-Writer gives you the option of an elegant electronic prescribing system that will NOT cost a fortune in disrupted workflow.

Published studies indicate it takes an average of six months for a medical practice to implement electronic medical records and electronic prescribing. Current e-prescribing solutions are typically avoided because they are expensive, inconvenient, distant from the point of care, and disrupt clinical workflow.

User feedback is valued. New features are added regularly. Rx-Writer will be “Meaningful Use" compliant.
Internet access required for faxing.

• Renew all patient’s medications with a single touch
• Fax prescriptions from iPad to pharmacies
• View medication lists chronologically, alphabetically, and by indication
• Know at a glance EVERY medication your patients are taking

Developers seem to have given up

The app seems to have stopped evolving in recent years, as glitches mount and become insurmountable.

Pretty Good App!

I have updated my rating to 4 stars, because the developer has been very responsive with phone support and set me up with their latest beta-testing version. That solved the constant crashing problems. They have said the latest beta version will soon go live as the next Apple Store version. Overall, this is now a pretty good solution for a solo practitioner like me. I wanted a simple yet effective e-prescribing solution without the hassle and complication of EHR-integrated alternatives that are complex and difficult (read time consuming). RX-Writer now seems to fit the bill. I withheld 1 star because I'd like to see easier, more frequent updates to the pharmacy database, a way to record the pharmacy each RX was faxed to (preferably on the print out of each RX), and more frequent updates to the drug database.

No support

For some time I have battled with being "dumped" from the app effectively making it impossible to use the app.
This program is convenient--when it works-- otherwise. It does lack some significant aspects, however.
1. no way to notate allergies
2. The Rx copy sent to the office does not indicate which pharmacy should have received the Rx
3. Many times the fax doesn't go through and the email notification doesn't tell you which fax failed.

All in all, a frustrating app with potential but no support.
