Remedi SeniorCare Receives Ohio Pharmacy Board Approval for Connexit Certified Pharmacy Interface with Optimus EMR, Inc.

Collaboration expands access to electronic transmission of critical resident data and prescription orders through secure interface

BALTIMORE, April 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Remedi SeniorCare, one of the nation's largest providers of pharmacy services to the long term care health sector through its patented automated medication dispensing system PAXIT announces the certification of a bi-directional interface through HL7 messaging protocols with Optimus EMR, one of the premier Electronic Health Record (EHR) vendors supporting long term care and post-acute care industries facilities within Ohio. This approval expands the opportunity for shared Remedi-Optimus serviced facilities nationwide to leverage the pharmacy interface to heighten efficiency in clinical operations and data integrity.

The Connexit Pharmacy Interface delivers the benefits of a bi-directional interface between a LTC facility and the pharmacy. Facilities implementing an EHR with a pharmacy interface realize enhanced safety, quality and efficiency for critical clinical workflows, including reductions in medication turnaround times, costs related to traditional fax-based operations, and vastly improved medication verification and transparency to resident order management. The interface can provide resource-constrained staff more time to care for their residents, rather than on time-consuming manual processes. "Designing a meaningful exchange of clinical information begins with developing robust IT interfaces that support the shared objective of connecting care and building value into an accountable facility-resident relationship," says David Lashar, Remedi's Chief Information Officer.

Two-way communication between the pharmacy and the facility's EHR vendor establishes a real-time, continuous patient record that ensures that the right medication is delivered to the right resident at the right time. Facilities that use Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) and electronic MAR (eMAR) realize a multitude of benefits, including the seamless updating of patient records with order information. Robert Davis, CEO of Optimus EMR, states, "Our customers appreciate and benefit from the automation introduced through the pharmacy interface.  The medication ordering process is one of the most labor-intensive activities of the nurses in LTPAC, when done manually and without a real time bi-directional interface."  Mr. Davis further states that the interface "immediately improves the efficiency and accuracy of the medication ordering process."
