Rush-Copley Medical Center Selects Pharmacy Xpert from Thomson Reuters to Improve Medication Management

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Thomson Reuters today announced Rush-Copley Medical Center has selected Thomson Reuters Pharmacy Xpert to more effectively manage medication therapy and improve pharmacist efficiency.  Pharmacy Xpert is a one-of-a-kind clinical intelligence dashboard that helps hospital pharmacists better manage medication therapy to improve outcomes, reduce costs, and manage risk.

"Pharmacy Xpert will take data from multiple sources from around our hospital and deliver it to one convenient dashboard, allowing our pharmacists to be more efficient and more effective in managing medication therapy," said Nancy Donner, PharmD, director of pharmacy services at Rush-Copley Medical Center. "We look forward to putting it in practice to improve pharmacy workflow, reduce our medication costs, and minimize medication errors."

Pharmacy Xpert combines three critical elements – real-time clinical surveillance, comprehensive patient data, and patient-specific Micromedex reference content – into a single dashboard.  

The real-time surveillance capability uses clinical profiles to automatically identify patients who are at risk of an adverse event, such as a potentially lethal combination or dosage of medications. It also helps pharmacists save thousands of dollars in medication costs by identifying alternative, yet equally effective, medication therapies – such as a lower-cost oral medication in place of a drug administered intravenously.  Once the at-risk patients are identified the pharmacist then has access to all the clinical data they need to make the appropriate medication recommendation.

Pharmacy Xpert is part of the Clinical Xpert™ suite of clinical workflow solutions. It can be quickly integrated within any hospital IT environment — including hospitals using platforms from Cerner, Eclipsys, Epic, GE, MEDITECH, McKesson and Siemens.
