I've been investigating E-prescribing again. Having a direct connection to Surescripts is not enough as they don't provide drug interactions, drug histories, and do not show which drugs are funded or not. There is a significant integration fee being charged, up to $30k by one company, as well as monthly network charges of $50/prescriber. To fund this, I will need to charge initially $500 per prescriber. But to kickstart this, I would like to do something similar to what I did for the EZsync utility. So, you can pay the $500 and that is your connection charge. Or, you can pay $1500, and get all of this back after my fees are covered. So, this is how it might work. Say 6 users pay $1500, and 2 users pay $500 which is a total of $10000. My integration costs are now covered. Thereafter, each $500 payment that is received will go to pay back those who paid $1500 so that the early adopters/investors end up paying $0. Those who paid $500 however, do not get anything back. Remember also that for 2010, you can get an extra 2% of your Medicare payments paid to you for using e-prescribing. And restricted drugs will soon be e-prescribable. This drops to 1% for 2011. I have had one person so far sign up to this.
