Injured Workers Pharmacy (IWP) specializes in workers’ compensation and auto-injury claims, serving as both an advocate and a home-delivery pharmacy. Due to the rise of e-prescribing combined with IWP expanding their service base across the country, IWP needed an e-prescribing solution for their pharmacy locations which included prescribing controlled substances. E-prescribing, and particularly the e-prescription of controlled substances, require adhering to standards set by Surescripts and the Drug Enforcement Administration. Surescripts, a network which facilitates the flow of healthcare information, must verify that a provider is certified to prescribe controlled substances, and the DEA has its individual set of protocols for the e-prescribing of controlled substances.
Claricode developed back end web services, allowing IWP to integrate smoothly with Surescripts, to handle all of the electronic prescription messaging. Additionally, Claricode wrote code to communicate and synchronize with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) clocks, a requirement for prescribing controlled substances. Claricode continues to provide technical support to IWP.
