EHR Launched with HL7 Interface & Medication Orders

The Roberts-Hoffman team, in association with Family Health West has implemented the first functional module of the Roberts-Hoffman EHR system.  In late January, we installed the HL7 interface between the existing HIS system and the EHR using the open source tool, Mirth.   In addition, we have created a medication ordering plugin that allows the pharmacy tech to electronically enter medication orders using the RxNorm medication list, and then print a customized medication administration record (MAR).  Thanks to all who worked to make this an amazing first step toward ONC 2011 certification!
