IRVINE, Calif., July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Accenx, a leading provider of health information exchange and interoperability solutions, announces that its integration of BayCare Health System's RxHistory is now live, helping their health care providers to spend less time questioning patient medication history and more time treating the patient. BayCare plans to be able to include 8,200 users in the integration by the project's end.
In a business where time equals more than money, BayCare, a 10 hospital, community-based health system located in Tampa, FL, sought a method to decrease the time their personnel and patients spent compiling an accurate medication history, increasing the time available to focus on the patient's current health issue. BayCare chose a solution that supplies patient medication history at the time of patient registration, eliminating that time-consuming process. BayCare turned to Accenx' health information exchange platform, Accenx Exchange(TM), to address the interoperability requirement of their solution; helping to achieve their goal to further increase patient focus and accurately diagnose and treat patients.
"Accenx quickly got involved and displayed their commitment to a partner relationship," stated Sam Adams, Manager of Application Development at BayCare. "They addressed our compatibility issue in a concise and knowledgeable manner, creating an interface that synced BayCare and the medication history solution perfectly. In my eyes, these actions place Accenx amongst the very few smart, technologically cogent, and capable vendors who can be counted on to do things right."
