Our discounted PPE, telehealth, e-prescribing benefits streamline your practice
ISMA is committed to offering benefits that enhance physicians’ practice success. As a member, you have access to discounted PPE, such as federally certified N95 masks made in Indiana, isolation gowns and hand sanitizers. And, two innovative offerings from DrFirst – the Backline telehealth solution and the iPrescribe electronic prescribing app – will save you time and make complying with e-prescribing guidelines easy.

N95 respirators: ISMA members receive a 10% discount on N95 respirators from Indiana Face Mask (IFM) in Rensselaer, Ind., in quantities ranging from single boxes of 25 individually wrapped masks to entire pallets. The same discount applies to surgical masks from IFM. These N95 masks are approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

More PPE: Discounted PPE products from other Indiana manufacturers are available to members, including hand sanitizer from Cardinal Spirits in Bloomington and isolation gowns from Jordan Manufacturing Company Inc. in Newton and White counties.

Easy, convenient e-prescribing: ISMA members get the first 12 months of iPrescribe by DrFirst for free, making compliance with new electronic prescribing guidelines that took effect Jan. 1 easy and affordable. iPrescribe is accessible through a cellphone application, works with your EHR or independently. It provides prescribing of controlled and standard medications, easy access to a patient’s medication history data, in-workflow checking of Indiana’s INSPECT prescription drug monitoring database, at-a-glance allergy and drug-to-drug alerts, and renewal requests on the go.

HIPAA-compliant telehealth: Backline by DrFirst enables easy, HIPAA-compliant telehealth. A simple text from a physician using Backline goes straight to the patient’s mobile phone to initiate a secure, HIPAA-compliant virtual visit and communications. There’s no patient registration process or app for patients to download and no limits on usage or per-session fees.
