MediSafe Becomes the First External Medication Management Platform to Integrate with Electronic Health Record Platforms

Leading medication management platform now has the API abilities to integrate with leading EHR platforms to ensure prescription information given by healthcare institutions is clearly reported for patients

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."
