Sep 10, 2019: Birmingham, Ala., – PharmaPoint is proud to announce that CEO, Mike Plaia, will be presenting a session at InterSystems Global Summit in Boston on Wednesday, September 25, from noon to 12:45 p.m. in the Wellesley room (third floor) of the Boston Marriott Copley Place.
Attendees will learn how integrated workflow management for medication optimization ensures better patient outcomes and satisfaction.
Industry research shows that 67% of adverse patient events post-discharge are medication related, significantly contributing to hospital readmission rates. The data is not surprising given that 60% of discharged patients are not compliant with their medication treatment plans. Approximately 40% of prescriptions are filled, but improperly taken, and 20% of prescriptions simply never get filled. This all results in $177 billion in yearly costs to the healthcare industry.
Using PharmaPoint client case studies, Plaia will show attendees how clients utilizing the XchangePoint solution has resulted in up to an 85% reduction in medication errors at admission and up to a 10% reduction in readmission rates for targeted patients. The InterSystems HealthConnect platform serves as a catalyst for quickly acquiring EHR data to target identified patient populations.
“We are excited to be attending InterSystems Global Summit again this year,” said Plaia. “It’s always good to be able to share the story of how XchangePoint is leveraging disparate data to provide targeted pharmacy interventions for the right patients at the right time.”
XchangePoint is designed to connect the physician, pharmacy, health insurance companies and other clinical systems utilizing integrated information to ensure better patient outcomes and satisfaction. This integration is key in order to provide effective bedside programs, medication reconciliation, post followup and coordinated transition care.
Members of the PharmaPoint team will have a space in the Summit’s Partner Pavilion, and attendees are encouraged to stop by for more information about XchangePoint. Open hours are set for Monday, September 23, from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m.; Tuesday, September 24, from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m.; or Wednesday, September 25, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
