Software Enhancement Increases Efficiency and Improves Workflow
MOORESTOWN, N.J., OCTOBER 7, 2021 – CareKinesis PACE Pharmacy, a service of Tabula Rasa HealthCare (NASDAQ:TRHC), a technology company advancing safe use of medication, announced a new feature of its innovative EireneRx® software for streamlined multiple medication entry. With this new feature, Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) clinicians can more quickly and easily request multiple prescriptions for a single patient, reducing submission time, improving workflow, and increasing efficiency.
“Our clients requested this enhancement, and we delivered,” said Orsula V. Knowlton, PharmD, Co-Founder and President, Tabula Rasa HealthCare. “PACE organizations can expect more streamlined processes and improved outcomes by partnering with CareKinesis and using our technology.” EireneRx e-prescribing, along with demographics, allergies, admissions, transfers, and discharge information, can be integrated with any national EMR or used as a stand-alone medication safety platform.
CareKinesis is the first national PACE-centric medication management and distribution pharmacy that reduces medication-related risk while enhancing economic, clinical, and humanistic outcomes. Its certified, cloud-based pharmacy solution features MedWise® medication decision support technology, which enables providers to make informed decisions at the point of prescribing to improve medication safety, efficacy, and adherence. CareKinesis clinical pharmacists provide 24/7 support, medication safety reviews, and recommendations that reduce risks, improve clinical outcomes, and reduce medical costs.
For CareKinesis, multiple medication entry is one of several new technological enhancements. Most recently, CareKinesis launched its Door2Door App, which allows PACE programs to track medication shipments from the time the shipment reaches the PACE center until it is delivered to the participant or caregiver. Door2Door Participant Communications provide voice and text notifications of medication delivery status.
PACE is a federal program that delivers medical and social services to the frail elderly, enabling them to age in place in their own community, instead of in a nursing home. About 60,000 individuals are served through 140 PACE programs in 30 states.
PACE organizations rely on CareKinesis, a service of Tabula Rasa HealthCare’s CareVention HealthCare Division, for their value-based partnership including medication risk management and comprehensive pharmacy services. CareKinesis pharmacists are board certified in geriatrics and collaborate with prescribers to optimize medication regimens that improve participant outcomes and reduce total costs, including the reduction of ER visits and hospitalizations. The proprietary MedWise decision support tool used by the pharmacists enables identification of medication risks, which are then mitigated. Boasting a client retention rate of 99%, CareKinesis offers services and programs that increase efficiency and scale workflow for PACE organizations.
