MidexPRO is one of the UK’s leading Private Practice Management Systems used by the medical community.
The software written and managed internally by the Software Team at MidexPRO offers many features to aid a busy Clinical Practice which include, a Patient Portal service, Card Payment facility, Secure Email Encryption, Diary function, and many, many more.
Sometimes though, we recognise that partnering with a company that can offer a new feature to enhance our product is equally important to our business model.
CloudRx is a great example of such a partnership. This digital prescription feature allows the MidexPRO User the ability to create and send electronic prescriptions to the CloudRx pharmacy for delivery direct to the patient.
Fully integrated into MidexPRO with no additional cost to the prescriber, this one partnership is proving to be a great addition to the suite of features MidexPRO has to offer.
MidexPRO client, Kelly Goulding of Akeman Medical Practice said ‘We started to use the CloudRx tool, during Covid-19 when the consultants were doing more remote consultations via video link and when it came to sending prescriptions, several of them got lost in the mail due to the restrictions during that time. Our patients couldn’t get their medication as easily as they would like.
This partnership was a useful additional tool not only through Covid but to enable us to go paperless. The way it works is really good and means I can put the information into the system, consultants can check it or submit it electronically without the risk of losing a paper copy. I am informed when the medication has reached the patient and from a patient point of view, they can pay for medication and have their medication within 24 hours of ordering.’
Beyond the day-to-day benefits of using CloudRx, the environmental impact is greatly reduced as Kelly has mentioned in her quote above.
This is another reason why the Partnership is a great addition to the suite of features we have to offer.
In 2022, MidexPRO made a commitment to reduce the carbon footprint of the MidexPRO software when considering future enhancements to the MidexPRO software. Going paperless is one part of this commitment as part of our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) accountability.
CloudRx works electronically, saving the need to print or prepare physical prescriptions. Their packaging is also, fully recyclable. CloudRx also uses DPD and Royal Mail to deliver the drugs to patients.
DPD has over 1500 all-electric vehicles delivering parcels. Their ‘25-25-25 Vision’ will see DPD deliveries using all Electric Vehicles to 18 cities by the end of 2022 and 25 cities by the end of 2023. The Royal Mail has also committed to reducing carbon emissions and is committed to having 5,500 electric vans by 2023. They are also trialling the use of Drones to deliver to remote locations.
This one partnership continues to help reduce the use of paper and will continue to help reduce the carbon footprint of patients, something we are very proud to be associated with.
CloudRx Director, Dr Julian Harrison added his comments regarding the partnership “CloudRx are delighted to have a seamless integration with MidexPRO that allows users to digitally prescribe from within the MidexPRO system directly into the CloudRx pharmacy using our open API.
The secure, real-time connection between the two software’s ensures that there is no need for patients to wait for the creation of a paper private prescription, or to take it to a pharmacy. CloudRx requests payment from the patient and as soon as the payment is received the medicines are dispensed and delivered directly to the patient.
Patient feedback tells us the service offered by CloudRx is world-class, as is expected by private patients. The CloudRx platform is completely free for Prescribers to use, and Prescribers can add a prescribing fee that CloudRx will also collect from the patient and then pass onto the prescriber in full.”
This feature is ready to use the moment you have completed the registration.
