HAIFA, Israel, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- MediSafe an award winning, top-rated mobile medication management platform, announces the company is now integrating with Electronic Health Record (EHR) platforms to help healthcare institutions clearly report prescription information and regimens to patients through the MediSafe app. As the first external medication management solutions ready to integrate with all leading EHR platforms, MediSafe can be adopted by any provider to keep out-patients accountable for their medication adherence, helping to improve health outcomes and reduce controlled costs.
The EHR and mHealth app collaboration allows doctors and nurse practitioners to populate prescription information and regimens through the EHR platform, which is then transferred to the MediSafe app securely so all pertinent information is documented correctly by professionals. Patients then receive a personalized invite to download the MediSafe app (branded to the provider), which includes all of the prescription details and directions discussed with their healthcare professionals. By implementing the MediSafe app into EHR systems, providers are adding another piece to the population-health puzzle, eliminating the risk of patients misinterpreting or forgetting prescription information, which can lead to deteriorating health conditions, ER visits and escalated healthcare costs.
MediSafe goes beyond the pill, delivering alert reminders, involving family as a secondary support system, offering automatic prescription refills and soon providing medication and disease information at the point of consumption. Additionally, the company works with pharmaceutical companies to further clarify how patients receive and take their medication. And now MediSafe is compatible with all leading EHR platforms, utilizing a set of universal APIs – which will be showcased at HIMSS 2014.
"To serve patients effectively, our healthcare systems must be connected and interoperable – powered by information that is presented to healthcare professionals and patients in the most efficient and meaningful way to ensure all patient-doctor interactions are productive in improving healthcare outcomes," said Ziv Ofek, CTO and head of innovation of dbMotion, recently acquired by AllScripts. "The providers we serve don't just engage patients within their facilities, they carry-through care 24/7. By seamlessly integrating medication management solutions into the population and disease management processes, throughout the continuum of care, can help providers empower their patients and achieve better outcomes."
The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) January 2014 Data Brief on EHR use found that 78.4 percent of office-based doctors used an EHR system in 2013, up from 71.8% in 2012. With over 50 percent of adult Americans having smartphones, it behooves EHR platforms to implement a mobile medication management solution, adding an external element of connectivity between the patient and provider, further improving healthcare outcomes by improving medication adherence.
"Doctor and hospital visits can be very overwhelming, and receiving prescription instructions are sometimes confusing and easily forgotten by patients once they leave. Providers are now implementing an additional connected thread to the patient-centered care model - adding an external mhealth tool into EHR systems to help patients be successful independently," said MediSafe CEO, Omri Shor. "Instead of offering a complicated solution with hoops to jump through, we wanted to make it easy, which is why MediSafe integrates with all leading EHRs, providing a universal external support system."
MediSafe is the top rated, award winning Medication Management Platform.
As the first solution, MediSafe has created the MediSafe App, the first cloud-synced mobile app helping families prevent emergencies caused by over- or under-dosing medications. In addition to reminding users when it's time to take their medication, MediSafe sends alerts to designated family members, friends and caretakers when a loved one misses a dose. Aggregated patient behavior data, trends and other market aspects are available to help pharmaceutical companies and providers better understand how patients receive and take their medications. Download MediSafe, a top-rated mobile adherence application from the Google Play and iTunes App Store. For more information, visit www.MediSafeProject.com.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
