Wedgewood Pharmacy, the largest U.S. compounding pharmacy specializing in animal health, has introduced Green Rabbit Rx, a new e-prescribing tool, with the new and improved features requested by veterinarians. It is available to licensed veterinarians at Order.WedgewoodPetRx.com.
This sophisticated new prescription tool is the result of significant research and development into expanding the capabilities of the company’s first-to-market e-prescribing tool, introduced in 2012.
The new tool offers these veterinarian-requested features:
Wedgewood Pharmacy, based in Swedesboro, New Jersey, makes customized medications for people and their pets when FDA–manufactured drugs cannot meet their needs. Compounded medications are prescriptions and medication orders that are written by physicians, veterinarians and other legally authorized prescribers and prepared by specially trained pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. The company serves more than 30,000 prescribers and hundreds of thousands of patients throughout the U.S.
Jennifer Jennings, Customer Care manager of Wedgewood Pharmacy, said, “We care passionately about animal health, so helping veterinary practices spend more time with their clients and patients and save time writing prescriptions is something we take very seriously. We’re grateful to our customers who helped us develop and test this new tool. The response we’ve gotten already is extremely positive.”
Test users nearly unanimously prefer the Green Rabbit Rx e-prescribing tool compared with the tool it replaces. One test user remarked in a user survey, “I thought it was great. It made ordering fast and easy. There are days when I will need to put three to four [prescription] orders in and it will help save time for me.” Another commented that the tool is “very easy to use, especially compared to some of your competitors’ websites.”
