CPSI, a healthcare information solutions provider, has joined with PipelineRx to offer a telepharmacy solution designed to help small and rural community hospitals provide first-class care.
The remote pharmacy solution through PipelineRx will be sold by TruBridge, the member of the CPSI family that provides business, IT and management consulting and services.
“Adding remote, real-time medication order review and verification services to our broad set of healthcare IT solutions for community hospitals will help them overcome a very common resource challenge,” said Boyd Douglas, president and CEO of CPSI.
San Francisco-based PipelineRx maintains a team of more than 100 experienced clinical pharmacists that uses best practices in medication management and verification to ensure accuracy, quality, safety, and fast turnaround. PipelineRx serves nearly 300 acute and specialty hospitals across the country.
Brian Roberts, CEO of PipelineRx, said: “Our cost-effective model helps hospitals improve care and medication safety for their patient populations. Our technology-enabled telepharmacy services will bring measurable clinical and fiscal value to acute and post-acute customers in the CPSI family of companies, and we are pleased to be teaming up on this collaborative, cloud-based solution.”
Douglas added, “We see this partnership as a great match for our company and for our customers. Addressing this very real need for additional resources fills our customers’ pharmaceutical coverage gap with professional, secure and premium-quality pharmacy services.
“We have begun the first phase of integration, which will bring the functionality and workflow associated with telepharmacy into our Evident and Centriq Electronic Health Records (EHR) solutions for the hospital setting. Once we complete this phase, we intend to integrate telepharmacy into our American HealthTech solutions for our post-acute customers.
“The PipelineRx announcement is the latest in a series of partnerships and product enhancements by CPSI designed to help community providers and leaders navigate the changing world of healthcare delivery, reimbursement and management,” Douglas concluded.
