RxNT and FLAVORx Partner to Help Pediatricians, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician’s Assistants Improve Medication Adherence for Patients
Date:8/10/2013

Columbia, Maryland (PRWEB) August 10, 2013

Networking Technology, Inc. dba RxNT, a Surescripts Gold Solutions Provider, and FLAVORx, supplier of adherence-boosting medication flavoring systems to 40,000 pharmacies across the country, have teamed up to make better-tasting medicine a seamless option for pediatric prescribers and their patients. Using RxNT eRx or RxNT eHr, pediatricians, nurse practitioners, and physician’s assistants can now designate a child’s preferred medication flavor directly on the electronic prescription with the click of a mouse or tap on the mobile device. This information is then communicated to the patient’s pharmacy, facilitating the custom-flavoring process for both the pharmacy and the patient.

“Pediatricians, nurse practitioners, and physician’s assistants know first-hand the importance of taste when it comes to pediatric adherence,” said Stuart R. Amos, CEO of FLAVORx. “The FLAVORx partnership with RxNT will go a long way towards improving adherence and outcomes for patients’ whose doctors, nurse practitioners, or physician’s assistants use the RxNT eRx or RxNT eHr systems.”

The taste of liquid medicine can be a significant barrier to higher adherence with children. A recent study found that 6 in 10 parents of children under nine years old have had a moderate-to-severe struggle getting their child to take liquid medication at some point in the past year. Custom medication flavoring at the pharmacy is a widely accepted method for improving the palatability of liquid medicine and a child’s willingness to adhere to the prescription regimen. Most chain, grocery, and mass merchant pharmacies offer the FLAVORx service to their customers, in addition to several thousand independent pharmacies.

Electronic prescribing is quickly becoming the de facto standard for prescription writing in the United States. A November 2012 data brief by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT found that 48% of U.S. physicians prescribe electronically. The number of physicians transmitting prescriptions electronically increased 40% from 2008 to 2012. Electronic prescribing is considered more accurate than paper-based prescribing, which leads to less confusion and fewer errors at the pharmacy. RxNT, with their first-to-market inclusion of a flavor selector in their eRx and eHr software, is further demonstrating the power electronic prescribing has to ensure healthy patient outcomes.
