University Hospitals and OnCallData Launch New Portal Combining State-of-the- Art Electronic Prescribing and Medication Reconciliation
Date:1/15/2009

ounds an alarm."

The UH Physician Portal also provides up-to-the-minute prescribing information to physicians. It can provide educational and drug-reference materials pertaining to individual medications that are specifically designed for patients. And it prints out a take-home medication list for the patient that is written in clear and plain language. The UH Physician Portal also provides a convenient and easy method to import inpatient medications from the hospitals and prescribe medications upon discharge of the patient.

"No more confusion about brand name versus generic drug names," said Dr. Levitan, "and no more Latin abbreviations that patients do not understand."

In addition, medications are checked for payer formulary status with cost savings in mind. All of these features, as well as patient-eligibility checking, occur behind the scenes in seconds prior to electronic routing of the prescription, at the patient's direction, to one of more than 72,000 community or mail-order pharmacies in the United States. All of this is carried out in a fashion that is as secure as on-line banking, so that patients' confidentiality is protected.

Medicare recently announced that it would like all physicians in the outpatient setting to begin sending medication orders to pharmacies electronically instead of using hand-written paper prescriptions. The UH Physician Portal allows physicians to do this as well.

The UH portal program was piloted by UH Family Medicine physicians for more than a year, and is being rolled out through the entire UH system of 11 medical and health centers.

UH developed the program with InstantDx/OnCallData, a pioneer in e-prescribing which launched the first true two-way electronic connection to pharmacies. OnCallData, developed by InstantDx, is the TEPR-award-winning e-prescribing engine within the UH portal.
