Feb 15, 2018: Birmingham, Ala. – PharmaPoint is proud to announce that Heritage Valley Health System (HVHS) is the newest partner to choose XchangePoint as the solution to integrate ambulatory pharmacy services into their patient care process.
HVHS is utilizing XchangePoint in both their Heritage Valley Beaver and Heritage Valley Sewickley locations to provide integrated workflow management for medication optimization within the acute care setting.
“We were looking for a solution to help improve the process in which we use a patient’s medication history to serve as the catalyst for pharmacy-led medication reconciliation,” says Mark Harmanos, Director of Pharmacy for HVHS. “This product has dramatically changed the way we approach medication history. In fact, it has dramatically improved patient care.”
The MedLink console within XchangePoint provides complete and accurate pharmacy-led medication reconciliation through vast data coverage of medication fill history and improved sig frequency rates. An intuitive user interface with a clean look and feel, coupled with a medication scorecard that provides six months of medication fill and refill history, along with key adherence metrics, offer HVHS patients customized patient care.
“We are excited to partner with Heritage Valley Health System to help meet some of the strategic mission imperatives that drive their organization,” said Mike Plaia, PharmaPoint CEO. “Their priorities of quality, safety, patient experience, information technology and community health directly correspond to XchangePoint’s built in intelligence designed to guide the patient care team to where the largest impacts can be made around ambulatory pharmacy programs.”
In the near future, HVHS will also phase in use of XchangePoint’s “meds to beds” workflow for bedside delivery of discharge medications.
