US medical center installs Thomson Reuters medication management solution
US-based BryanLGH Medical Center has deployed Thomson Reuters' Pharmacy Xpert clinical surveillance and intervention solution to proactively capture interventions, manage medication therapy and improve pharmacist efficiency across its facilities.
Pharmacy Xpert, whicht belongs to the Clinical Xpert Suite of workflow solutions, is a clinical intelligence dashboard that aids hospital pharmacists in improving outcomes, reducing costs, and managing risk.
The solution continuously monitors patient specific data from multiple sources, including medication lists and dosages, vital signs, lab results, transcribed reports, I&Os and demographics.
The pharmacist then has the data delivered on a single screen such that all critical patient information is at their fingertips for pro-active care management.
Pharmacy Xpert includes prebuilt clinical profiles developed by clinicians and healthcare professionals that deliver the drug, disease, and toxicology content in the Micromedex evidence-based clinical decision support solution.
The prebuilt profiles are believed to cover antimicrobial, anticoagulation and glycemic monitoring, IV to PO conversions, narrow therapeutic indexing, patient safety and target medications.
