Improving the handling of information across America’s healthcare system is the aim behind an alliance that has been formed between pharmaceutical services company AmerisourceBergen and clinical software provider, Allscripts.
Using AmerisourceBergen and Allscripts solutions, the alliance will focus on delivering healthcare providers with authorized electronic access to patient medication records and drug monitoring across the continuum of healthcare.
The solution is expected to be an early step toward creating the interoperable medication record, which will enhance clinical, economic and operational efficiencies in the nation’s healthcare delivery system.
Commenting on Allscripts electronic prescribing application, Susan Stinson, vice president of clinical integration strategy for AmerisourceBergen said, It is a solution that can be used throughout the continuum of care. It provides a safe, secure and affordable exchange of information with a full range of solutions for physicians to use to document care, to order tests, to receive and view results, and to assess them over an extended period of time.
In supporting the adoption and connectivity of electronic prescribing, the Allscripts solutions distributed by AmerisourceBergen will assist health systems, physicians and pharmacies in complying with new Health and Human Services (HHS) regulations and provisions of the Medicare Modernization Act
