PipelineRx’s New Clinical Solutions in Antimicrobial and Opioid Stewardship, Transitions of Care, and Personalized Medication Screening Featured at ASHP Midyear
Poster Research on Antimicrobial and Opioid Stewardship Complement Solution Demonstrations in Booth #2213
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.— December 3, 2019 —PipelineRx, a leading medication management and telepharmacy company powered by clinical expertise and cloud technology, is exhibiting at the 2019 ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting, December 8-12 in Las Vegas. The Company will be in booth #2213, where attendees can experience its newest clinical solutions, designed to tackle some of the most complex challenges facing healthcare today. Since 2009, PipelineRx has developed integrated solutions that optimize and transform pharmacy, and improve the cost and quality of patient care. Partnering with over 500 facilities in the U.S. and Canada, PipelineRx delivers over one million clinical interventions each year.
Given the recent regulatory requirements around antimicrobial and opioid use, and the increasing focus on coordinated care transitions, the Company is featuring the following offerings in its booth. These solutions work seamlessly within the scalable medication management platform, PowerGridRx™, for an easier approach to total medication management.
- Antimicrobial Stewardship – 30% of all antibiotics prescribed in the U.S. are either unnecessary or inappropriate, contributing to antibiotic resistant bacteria and the rise of superbugs. The PipelineRx solution helps hospitals and long-term care facilities more efficiently monitor antimicrobial usage and optimize therapies through adaptable workflows and dynamic reporting tools.
- Opioid Stewardship – Prescription opioids are an important component of treatment for many patients with chronic and acute pain. However, serious risks can be associated with their use. PipelineRx’s solution helps identify and monitor opioid prescribing through alerts, documentation, reporting, and patient counseling to ensure appropriate use.
- Transitions of Care – As CMS, health plans, and accreditation bodies increase their focus on connecting care between settings, medication reconciliation at care transitions has risen to a top priority. The PipelineRx solution helps pharmacists establish a comprehensive, longitudinal medication record for designated or high risk patients, monitor those patients for appropriate medication therapies, ensure access to needed medications, and support communications with patients and their caregivers for greater adherence and better outcomes.
Additionally, PipelineRx is excited to introduce the new personalized medication screening solution, powered by YouScript following a partnership announced earlier this year. With 15% of patients taking 5+ medications and predicted to double by 2040, and half of all prescription medications not working as intended, polypharmacy (not just drug-drug) and drug-gene checking is becoming more than an interesting innovation – it’s a necessity. YouScript’s CEO Kristine Ashcraft will be in PipelineRx’s booth speaking with hospitals about the advancements in gene-informed medication management.
