Tamper-resistant Prescription Pads from WorkflowOne Meet or Exceed New Federal Mandates

Tuesday, September 18, 2007

Press release from the issuing company

DAYTON, Ohio, September 18, 2007 -- WorkflowOne, a leading North American provider of print, promotional products and supply chain services, today announced that its SaferScript prescription pad meets or exceeds the government’s new mandates. 
On October 1, 2007, when Medicaid prescriptions must use at least one anti-forgery feature, SaferScript pad users already will be compliant.  SaferScript pad capabilities also meet the October 2008 requirement for at least three such features.  WorkflowOne originally developed SaferScript pads in 2006 with close collaboration from medical professionals and law enforcement officials to combat the epidemic of prescription drug abuse.
SaferScript pads have been certified by seven states that have current laws requiring tamper-resistant prescriptions for various drug types.  The security features offered by SaferScript pads include:
- Micro printing, small text that appears as a line until magnified and, when copied, becomes solid;
- Red thermochromic ink which fades with heat associated with copying;
- A “void” pantograph, which is not visible unless the prescription is copied;
- Watermarks on back;
- Chemical protection paper;
- Batch and sequential numbering; and
- Proactively validating each physician’s license number prior to creating prescription pads.
“We support the new Medicare guidelines enthusiastically, and are proud to offer our technology in the fight against prescription drug abuse,” said Mike Zawalski, president and CEO of WorkflowOne.  “Clearly, WorkflowOne’s long history of developing secure documents that are both efficient and effective underlies the success of SaferScript.”
