Jan 29, 2020: Birmingham, Ala. – PharmaPoint is proud to announce the release of XchangePoint Version 6.5. This release is in accordance with the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs’ (NCPDP) regulatory commitment for a new standard of pulling a patient’s medication history.
The new script from NCPDP includes important functionality and transactions identified by the industry as vital enhancements for improving patient safety, clinical decision-making, and business and administrative efficiencies for all stakeholders, including patients and healthcare providers.
For example, a Surescripts disclaimer was added to the display of a patient’s medication history results to remind users that this is a tool that accompanies interaction with the patient and other caregivers to reconcile an accurate medication list. Upgrading to Surescripts’ Medication History Version 3.0 allows XchangePoint to remain in compliance with the regulatory guidelines for patient care.
Various performance improvements and updates to the application include optimization of various stored procedures to decrease the time to launch the XchangePoint application and improve background queries within the application workflow.
“Enhanced workflow for bedside delivery of discharge medications that creates efficiency for the end user is always our goal,” said Lance Higgins, Lead Systems Engineer for PharmaPoint. “XchangePoint was created to be an intuitive solution that proactively drives improved adherence for better outcomes and reduced risks. Version 6.5 enriches those objectives.”
Another key update is to the user productivity report. This provides leadership with better insight to assess staffing and productivity models of meds to beds programs. For instance, a clear explanation of a technician’s weekly statistics for time spent on the floor can aid in decision making for adjusted work hours, floor assignments and the overall approach to how the program is structured based on a targeted population.
“These enhancements will continue to streamline and improve not only the end user XchangePoint experience, but also patient satisfaction and outcomes,” says Valerie Seidel, RPh, Vice President of Product Solutions for PharmaPoint. “Our patients are our most important audience. And with XchangePoint, care team members are able to attain accurate medication lists at admission, efficient bedside delivery of medications prior to discharge, and pharmacy interaction post discharge. These actions round out the medication care continuum touch points from start to finish, with the ultimate goal of improved medication adherence being achieved.”
