- Press Release
Oct 20, 2015: Birmingham, Ala. - PharmaPoint is pleased to announce that XchangePoint, its best-of-class target population health management system, is now Surescripts certified for medication history.
XchangePoint, Version 4.0, features a medication reconciliation solution that supports a pharmacist-led bedside consultation of medications at discharge. The result is an accurate, up-to-date discharge medication list that includes both home and newly prescribed medications.
By using an electronic medical record (EMR) or e-prescribing software certified to connect to the Surescripts network, hospitals or practices can reduce costs, enhance patient safety and improve practice efficiency. Medication history services allow prescribers to access critically important information on their patient’s current and past medications from pharmacy benefit managers and community pharmacies. This helps inform prescribers about potential medication issues.
XchangePoint, receiving real-time data from the health system’s EHR, pharmacy management system, and other disparate systems, uses proprietary algorithms to identify and target at-risk patients in need of pharmacy services at the point or transition of care.
“Transitions of care can result in medication errors, medication non-adherence and confusion about discharge medications,” said Sai Kand, Senior Vice President of Software Engineering for PharmaPoint. “Utilizing Surescripts medication history and XchangePoint’s medication reconciliation solution, pharmacists are able to fully reconcile a patient’s medication at discharge, improving the transition of care by ensuring that the patient goes home with correct medications in hand, and a clear understanding of the medication treatment plan.”
