|Better Medication Histories||| Print ||
Emdeon and PDX have announced plans for an initiative to improve healthcare provider access to real-time medication histories. The medication histories will be delivered from PDX's electronic pharmacy record (EPR) to the Emdeon Clinical Exchange and then to authorized requesting hospitals, healthcare providers, health information exchanges, skilled-nursing facilities, and ambulatory and acute inpatient settings.
As a result, healthcare entities will no longer have to depend solely on the information provided by the insurance carrier or the patient's memory.
PDX's EPR is a portable, interoperable patient and prescription database that contains almost 100 million patients and over 1.3 billion transactions. Emdeon's network reaches approximately 500,000 healthcare providers, 81,000 dentists, 60,000 pharmacies, 5,000 hospitals, 1,200 payers, and 300 labs.
