Date:1/10/2012

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BryanLGH Medical Center in Lincoln, NE, today announced that it has implemented the Pharmacy Xpert clinical surveillance and intervention solution from Thomson Reuters to proactively capture interventions, manage medication therapy and improve pharmacist efficiency across BryanLGH's facilities.

"We selected Pharmacy Xpert because our pharmacists need to be able to act quickly and accurately when time is of the essence.  Pharmacy Xpert delivers this level of certainty while eliminating the need for redundant manual patient data searches and alerting us to critical events such as patients at high risk for adverse reactions or patients who are good candidates for intervention," said Jeff Weber, Clinical Pharmacy Manager at BryanLGH Medical Center. "Additionally, Pharmacy Xpert provides the flexibility to create our own patient profiles and criteria for alerts, which will lead to improved efficiency and effectiveness and better patient outcomes."

Pharmacy Xpert – part of the Clinical Xpert™ Suite of workflow solutions – is a one-of-a-kind clinical intelligence dashboard that aids hospital pharmacists in improving outcomes, reducing costs, and managing risk.  Using criteria outlined in clinical profiles, Pharmacy Xpert continuously monitors patient specific data from multiple sources, including medication lists and dosages, vital signs, lab results, transcribed reports, I&Os, demographics and more. The data is then delivered to the pharmacist on a single screen – so all critical patient information is at their fingertips for pro-active care management. 

"Having all clinical information interface into one location has made the task of locating specific groups of patients in real-time possible," stated Nancy Bargen, Registered Nurse, Clinical Applications Analyst at BryanLGH.  "In addition, the option of customized profiles built to specific patient populations and criteria supports our best care practices throughout the organization."

In addition to the option of customized profiles built to specific patient populations and criteria, Pharmacy Xpert includes prebuilt clinical profiles developed by the same experienced clinicians and healthcare professionals that deliver the drug, disease, and toxicology content in the industry leading Micromedex® evidence-based clinical decision support solution. These prebuilt profiles cover antimicrobial, anticoagulation and glycemic monitoring, IV to PO conversions, narrow therapeutic indexing, patient safety, and target medications.

Pharmacy Xpert taps into BryanLGH's Siemens Sorian hospital information system (HIS), aggregates clinical data from patient admissions, pharmacy orders, laboratory results, vitals and various transcribed reporting systems and delivers it to the pharmacists on a single screen – so all critical patient information is available at once. It provides the comprehensive, intelligent evidence that pharmacists need to operate more efficiently.

Pharmacy Xpert can be quickly integrated within any hospital IT environment – including hospitals using Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems from Cerner, Eclipsys, Epic, GE, MEDITECH, McKesson and Siemens.
