Rx History Interface from QS/1

QS/1 has introduced an interface to ESI in order to view a patient’s prescription history. This is enabled by QS/1’s PowerLine system. The information is stored on ESI’s repository of retail prescription claims, and is electronically delivered by ESI in real time when requested at the patient’s point of care.

“Using ESI Rx History will allow pharmacies to add their patient’s information to the database. If the patient is ever admitted to a hospital, this will give doctors immediate access to the most current medications the patient is taking,” says Michael Ziegler, the company’s senior manager for marketing and analyst.
