Filemaker add-in for electronic billing and prescribing

We have been using filemaker for over 7 years, we are very happy with it.
Our company has grown and we are looking for a method of integrating electronic prescription and electronic billing for our current database.
The add-in we require needs to be HIPPA compliant.  Changed in healthcare has pushed us to look into this new method. There are software out there that does dispensing, e-billing, and e-prescriptions, but those software companies are not flexible in providing us specific needs. They mention their dispensing software with those "e" features is a package software. That they can not modify it or simply add an additional field into their program.  They would want us to use a work-around. We do not want that. Since we have our database with inventory and all information pertaining to our patients, we would rather build the code to create a dispensing layout similar to their software.  We do not want to have to export our data into a new database for dispensing, so we rather keep it in-house.  What I am looking for has anyone of you used or know of a add-in module for our current database so we can use the features of -ebilling and e-prescribing.  I did notice there is an add-on for scanning via laser gun, that will be helpful. With that scanning feature, we would like to know if there is a database of products library on the net we can use to download(healthcare based) and import into our database?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I understand that you have a clear idea of what you are looking for but I see many variables in what you are talking about and terms which lack specific context: e-billing and e-prescribing in particular. These terms are very vague and could mean any number of specific capabilities and actions.

In order to even begin to approach your question, I would suggest you do what I ask most clients to do before I even sit down with them, which is to write up a very specific list of the structure and functionality you are looking for. What, specifically are you wanting to do, e.g. 1) log a prescription for a patient in their patient record using a list of existing products, 2) transmit that prescription to the selected outlet (the patient's pharmacy), 3) send a payable invoice to the patient, etc.

From the functionality list you'll be able to develop a specification for where you want to go with the software and also be able to communicate clearly about what you're trying to do to anyone who might be assisting or consulting with you.

This question would better be addressed to the Filemaker Discussions site or Filemaker Community site.

HIPPA Compliance would be the biggest hurdle
Integration with E-prescribing
