Phoenix, AZ – May 13, 2019 – HealthWare Corporation, a trusted information solutions vendor, just announced a new integration partnership with global point-of-care solutions provider PEPID, LLC. Clinicians and caregivers in HealthWare-powered home health and hospice agencies can now access the largest, unbiased drug database on the market.
This strategic partnership equips HealthWare’s EMRs with a robust Drug Interactions Checker, powered by PEPID’s proprietary drug-drug and drug-substance algorithm. Clinicians will be able to check full medication lists (including herbal supplements) and substances in-EMR for potential adverse drug events (ADEs), duplicate therapies and more. The partnership will improve provider workflow to verify safe medication administration directly within HealthWare’s systems.
“Partnering with similarly one-stop-shop health IT solutions providers is always an exciting milestone as it furthers our commitment to improving patient outcomes and interoperability. I am extremely excited to announce our partnership with HealthWare as we collaborate to help save both clinicians’ time and patients’ lives.”Sean Wagner, Director of Product Management, PEPID
An estimated 38 billion prescriptions are written out in the US each year. ADEs account for approximately 700,000 emergency room visits and 100,000 admissions every year. Elderly patients, who take more medications and are more at risk to adverse effects and toxicity than younger patients, are especially vulnerable to ADEs. PEPID and HealthWare’s partnership is a mutual effort to reduce the impact of ADEs and improve patient outcomes.
HealthWare provides a complete software solution to manage the clinical and financial needs of your home care agency while maintaining regulatory requirements. Its ease of use and comprehensive home health specific features help your agency improve in areas such as communication, outcomes, and reimbursement, as well as reduces operating costs. Since HealthWare’s applications are seamlessly integrated, information flows smoothly from intake, to scheduling, and clinical, then feeds directly into billing for timely reimbursement and accurate reporting[SW1] .
