Tabula Rasa HealthCare Launches MedWise™ SaaS Technology Integration for Community Pharmacists
“If a person takes seven or more medications, which is common among the elderly, the chance of experiencing an adverse drug event (ADE) is 82%,” said TRHC Chairman and CEO
Available within TRHC’s PrescribeWellness patient engagement software, MedWise includes the unique MedWise Risk Score™ (MRS) calculation along with a new feature known as MedWise Decision Support (MDS). MDS simulates changes to the risk score in real-time, helping pharmacists to assess simultaneous, accumulative, multi-drug interactions amongst complex medication regimens in an efficient manner and avoid ADEs. ADEs are largely considered preventable and are the third leading cause of death.
“Through MedWise, we're helping to provide significantly enhanced clinical services and improved outcomes for our patients,” said PrescribeWellness client
“Community pharmacists have at their disposal an unprecedented opportunity for risk mitigation and clinical intervention utilizing MedWise, available within the PrescribeWellness software," said TRHC EVP of PW,
While client-reported data has existed for years, recently published studies found that reduction in the MRS is associated with lower medical costs, fewer adverse drug events, emergency department visits, and hospitalizations.
