ScriptGuide via iMedica EHR provides patients with prescription drug information, encourages patients to fill prescriptions
DALLAS, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- iMedica Corporation, a leading developer of healthcare software solutions for physician practices, announced today that it has partnered with LDM GROUP, a prescription compliance provider, to bring ScriptGuide(R) to physician practices using the iMedica Patient Relationship Manager(TM) (PRM), a single-application electronic health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) solution that utilizes Microsoft's latest .NET technology.
"It is staggering to think that across a variety of chronic therapies one-in-three prescriptions may go unfilled," said Michael Nissenbaum, CEO of iMedica. "This lack of compliance creates unnecessary costs within the healthcare industry. Through LDM's ScriptGuide solution we are providing results for the patient, physician and healthcare industry as a whole. Our clients can experience improved compliance rates between eight percent on average and as high as 19 percent in some therapeutic categories."
ScriptGuide is automated into the physician workflow producing customized, easy-to-read, patient education information at the point of care. Patients are handed relevant and easily understood information while at the physician's office, a key step in the prescription process.
The ScriptGuide content is developed by LDM GROUP in cooperation with pharmaceutical manufacturers. ScriptGuides are available for several chronic disease states that have consistently high rates of non-compliance. Some of these include high cholesterol, high blood pressure, acid reflux, allergy, diabetes, asthma, ADHD, depression, insomnia, osteoporosis, ED, and migraines.
"We are very excited to partner with iMedica. They have a significant number of deployed physicians and a great track record of success in the healthcare industry. LDM looks forward to improving medication compliance rates and the satisfaction of the patients their physicians' serve, and to providing additional value to iMedica PRM, EHR and PM system," said David Christenson, SVP of LDM GROUP.
