mystery product revealed
Headquartered in Greenwich, Conn., WorkflowOne has introduced Secure Rx Pad, a tamper-resistant prescription form containing built-in, state-compliant security features. Now, WorkflowOne is allowing distributors outside the organization who have health-care customers to order the finished product from WorkflowOne, and merely pass the printed Secure Rx Pad through their shop to their end-users with a mark-up.
WorkflowOne consulted heavily with law enforcement agencies and health-care organizations in developing Secure Rx Pad to combat prescription drug abuse and illegally forged prescriptions. The product is already certified for use in California, Florida and Vermont, where law mandates the use of tamper-resistant, counterfeit-proof prescription forms for a number of drug types.
Features of Secure Rx Pad include serial numbers for tracing prescriptions; micro printing; watermarks and a logo that lets pharmacies know special care is required.
A key component of Secure Rx Pad is WorkflowOne’s process of proactively validating each physician license number prior to creating prescription pads for Schedule I-V drugs. The ability to match physicians’ licenses against a national database provides state law enforcement, pharmacies and health-care providers the extra security needed to counter fraudulent prescriptions.
