Kryptiq's eScriptMessenger Enables Improved Patient Safety and Office
PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Kryptiq, the leading provider of next generation healthcare connectivity solutions, today announced the deployment of eScriptMessenger(TM) (eSM) at CoxHealth. A four-hospital organization with 55 physician clinics in the Springfield, MO region, CoxHealth is using eScriptMessenger to improve patient safety and office efficiency.
"eScriptMessenger improves our prescription processes, adds to the safety of our patients, and streamlines follow-up," said Jan Ruddell, EMR project manager for CoxHealth. "It is a simple and elegant solution to a very real problem."
CoxHealth has implemented Kryptiq's eSM to improve patient safety by ensuring legible and credible communications between pharmacies and doctors, as well as eliminating manual data entry at the pharmacy to prevent avoidable errors. According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, e-prescribing could reduce some 530,000 "adverse events" that occur annually in Medicare alone. eSM also improves office efficiency through a deep integration with the GE Centricity(R) EMR, enabling the entire prescribing process to occur within existing EMR workflows.
"Kryptiq's solutions, from secure messaging to ePrescribing, have been successful because of our understanding of physician and staff workflows," said Luis Machuca, president and CEO of Kryptiq. "eScriptMessenger is so easy to use and so well integrated into existing workflows that more GE Centricity EMR customers have implemented Kryptiq than any other ePrescribing solution."
CoxHealth's Mission is to improve the health of the communities we serve through quality health care, education and research. CoxHealth was the original presence in the South National and Primrose "medical mile" area, with construction of a 130-bed skilled long-term health care facility that opened in 1980. CoxHealth is an integrated health care system that provides medical services to more than 750,000 people in a 22-county primary service area in southwest Missouri and northern Arkansas. The health system includes four hospitals; more than 50 physician clinics; Oxford HealthCare home health agency and hospice services; and Burrell Behavioral Health, which provides inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services, inpatient psychology, Home Support Systems that provided home medical equipment and Primrose Place, a skilled long term-care facility.
