Emdeon To Collaborate With Rx Response in Critical Pharmacy Disaster Reporting
Date:7/14/2009

NASHVILLE, Tenn., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Emdeon, a leader in revenue and payment cycle solutions, today announced participation through eRx Network, Emdeon's pharmacy services operation, in the Rx Response Pharmacy Status Reporting Tool, a revolutionary emergency preparedness tool that is triggered under a federal disaster declaration. The tool allows emergency managers, consumers and healthcare providers access to critical services during a disaster.

Rx Response was developed in 2007 to help ensure the availability of medicine to patients during a severe public health emergency. Rx Response acts as a single point of contact for the entire pharmaceutical supply system and federal and state emergency management officials to communicate pharmaceutical needs and other issues which may impact the supply system. The Pharmacy Status Reporting Tool was first activated during the Kentucky ice storm of January 2009 with much success.

"As an integral part of the pharmaceutical supply chain, we are eager to participate with Rx Response to help speed the timely exchange of information regarding operable pharmacies during an emergency," said George Lazenby, chief executive officer of Emdeon. "We believe this collaboration will further our goal to improve the business of healthcare by providing valuable information when it is needed most."

Emdeon processed four billion healthcare related transactions in 2008 alone. Its revenue and payment cycle network reaches the largest number of payers, providers and pharmacies in the U.S. healthcare system, including approximately 1,200 payers, 500,000 providers, 5,000 hospitals, 77,000 dentists and 55,000 pharmacies. With access to data from a broad geographic area, Emdeon will be able to provide Rx Response with a list of pharmacies that are operating during an emergency based on claims filing information. <
