Sep 02, 2021: Birmingham, Ala. – PharmaPoint is proud to announce that Mountain Laurel Medical Center has chosen XchangePoint to support the goals of a grant awarded by the Maryland Department of Health for Cardiovascular Disease Intervention (CDI) to improve patient outcomes.
“We are excited to partner with PharmaPoint on this very important initiative to improve medication adherence, and ultimately, the overall health of our cardiovascular patients,” said Brian Bailey, CEO. “In looking for a very specific solution to address the grant requirements, PharmaPoint’s vision for improving medication adherence perfectly aligned with our goals and objectives.”
Mountain Laurel will utilize the MedTransition module within XchangePoint to gain insight into which prescriptions their patients are filling as prescribed. The solution will also help to visually identify and pinpoint gaps in therapy for those medications that the patient has filled to date.
When a cardiovascular patient is seen at one of Mountain Laurel’s clinic locations and prescribed a new medication, XchangePoint’s MedValidation tool will provide visibility into whether patients have filled those prescriptions. A patient’s medication history will be matched up against his or her discharge medication list to determine the specific medications a patient was expected to get filled.
“We know that 50% of chronic medications are not taken properly,” said Mike Plaia, PharmaPoint’s CEO. “This partnership with Mountain Laurel represents a tremendous opportunity for us to improve outcomes specifically for their CDI patient population, but also allow their patient care teams to support pharmacy interventions across all patient populations, resulting in a significant impact on overall patient outcomes.”
