I had no problem opening the website at:
https://erxnowregistration.allscripts.com/

I am not shilling for them.  Generally they are a PIA to work 
with because of the security.  But they do provide a free 
ePrescribe service that is HIPAA complient.

The OS doesn't get approved, the whole installation must be 
reasonably secure.  If you are going to be connected to the 
internet fairly constant intrusion detection is a good idea in 
addition to the usual edge router firewall...
We also use whole disk encryption (LKS) for protection if the 
server is stolen and application level encryption for all 
clinical information... and we pray a lot.
