PDX-Rx.com Works With Microsoft HealthVault to Make Prescription Data Available to Patients
Date:6/9/2009

The Rx.com Electronic Pharmacy Record (EPR) to Integrate with Microsoft(R) HealthVault(TM)

FORT WORTH, Texas, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- PDX and Rx.com have entered into a strategic agreement with Microsoft to make prescription data, which Rx.com manages for multiple chain and independent pharmacy clients, available to Microsoft HealthVault users by accessing a single site with aggregated prescription data. The agreement enables any pharmacy using the Rx.com Electronic Pharmacy Record (EPR) to export their patients' prescription history into HealthVault. Each PDX pharmacy client will have their own independent relationship with Microsoft, while PDX serves to technically integrate the pharmacy's data with the HealthVault platform. Meijer, Inc. is the first PDX client to start integration with HealthVault.

HealthVault helps people collect and store health information from many sources in one location, so that it is always organized and available to them online. HealthVault is working with doctors, hospitals, employers, pharmacies, insurance providers and manufacturers of health devices--blood pressure monitors, heart rate monitors, and more--to make it easy for people to add information electronically to their HealthVault records. Users can then share information electronically with family members and providers as they choose.

"PDX and Rx.com connecting with HealthVault helps put consumers in control of managing their own care and the care of extended family members - children, a spouse or an aging parent," said David Cerino, general manager of the Consumer Health Solutions Group at Microsoft. "Customers from thousands of pharmacies across the country will be able to integrate their prescription history into HealthVault, which will provide them with a more complete picture of their health, and allow them to make better healthcare decisions."

The Rx.com EPR currently includes almost half of its 10,000 pharmacies across the United States, representing over 65 million patients and almost one billion prescriptions. Another 1,000 pharmacies, representing an additional 15.6 million patients and 250 million prescriptions, are implementing the EPR over the next six months.

"PDX is pleased to be the first aggregator of cleansed and merged multi-pharmacy, portable and interoperable electronic prescription records to enter into a strategic relationship with Microsoft. This new agreement will give our 65 chain pharmacy customers--as well as our independent pharmacies--the ability to integrate client prescription history from a single source into HealthVault at the patient's request," said Ken Hill, Sr., R.Ph., founder and CEO of PDX and Rx.com.

How the Partnership Works

Currently, patients can access their prescription history from each individual pharmacy's Web site. With the HealthVault integration, patients of pharmacies that aggregate their data in the Rx.com EPR can go to one Web site, Rx.com, to get copies of all their pharmacy data downloaded into their HealthVault user account.

This allows PDX customers the ability to integrate their prescription data with HealthVault via a link with the Rx.com EPR. As a result, patients will be able to view a more complete prescription profile that will include clinical pharmacy records from a variety of pharmacies and healthcare providers.

HealthVault users must explicitly provide consent to any PDX pharmacy client to import their prescription history into HealthVault and/or share HealthVault profile data back to the pharmacy. HealthVault also allows users to share their medical data with other providers, which ultimately helps to better coordinate care.
