DrFirst Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators
DrFirst offers a comprehensive set of tools and services that optimize the entire medication management process.
From the time a patient is interviewed, a prescription is written and a follow up occurs to confirm a patient is adhering to their care instruction, their platform supports each phase of medication management including secure, HIPAA compliant solutions that help providers curb opioid abuse without negatively impacting patient safety and outcomes. DrFirst is offering e-prescribing for controlled substances (EPCS), and is considered the industry standard for providers nationwide.
DrFirst Recent Developments
In April 2019, mumms Software integrated with DrFirst, the nation's leading provider of e-prescribing, price transparency, and medication management solutions. Unprecedented among hospice and palliative care EMRs, this in-workflow integration will give clinicians using mumms Hummingbird EMR seamless access to prescribe both legend and scheduled drugs without exiting the EMR, saving them time and improving the comfort and safety of their patients.
DrFirst unveiled its new mobile e-prescribing system dubbed iPrescribe. The new system is designed to help providers improve first-fill medication adherence, fight opioid abuse with in-workflow decision support tools, increase prescriber efficiency including working across multiple care provider facilities and EHRs, and drive better quality of care and reduce medication errors via improved data visibility.
DrFirst revealed that its care collaboration platform, Backline, is being used to mobilize and expand healthcare capacity in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Backline enables the delivery of “healthcare without walls” through telehealth capabilities that empower clinicians to provide patient care beyond the traditional confines of a hospital, doctor’s office, clinic, or long-term care facility.
DrFirst Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) Activities
In 2017, DrFirst acquired VisibilityRx for clinical trial recruitment services to life sciences, clinical research organizations, and pharmacies.

DrFirst Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions
In February 2018, DrFirst launched iPrescribeSM, a mobile app that allows physicians to prescribe legend drugs and controlled substances while complying with state prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) requirements.
DrFirst acquired iPrescribe.net, a mobile e-prescribing application. Its standalone E-prescribing solution is used by 250 PM and EHR systems. Also, It has developed a modular EHR for Meaningful Use.
DrFirst's acquisition of AdherenceRx enabled it to create its new Patient Innovation division that provides the electronic tools, health coaching, and patient support via phone, email and SMS text that physician practices and health plans need to reduce medical non-adherence.
In April 2019, DaFirst structured a new $17 million commercial financing facility with SunTrust Banks, Inc. The financing extends DrFirst's strategic relationship with SunTrust Banks, a partnership which initially began in 2015.
DrFirst Risks and Challenges
DrFirst has the potential of becoming a dominant player in the e-prescribing space, positioning itself as the alternative to the market leader Allscripts. The question remains whether it can build on its organic growth or compress the time to market through a series of acquisitions. The latter path could result in a shift in its collaborative culture, a key differentiator that has underpinned much of its history.
