MOORESTOWN, N.J. and WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., June 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tabula Rasa HealthCare (TRHC), a healthcare technology company optimizing medication safety by deploying new Medication Risk Mitigation digital solutions and novel Medication Decision Support tools, and Tandigm Health, LLC, a value-based healthcare company supporting primary care physicians, announced today that Tandigm has engaged TRHC to assess the medication regimens of high-risk patients who were recently discharged from the hospital, to ensure that regimens are appropriate, effective, safe, taken as intended and have no drug interactions.
Through TRHC’s Care Transitions services, its geriatric certified clinical pharmacists will assess the medication regimen risk by using its Medication Risk Mitigation™ platform, MedWise Advisor®, to consider all medications used prior to a hospitalization and those prescribed upon discharge. Using TRHC’s advanced technology, TRHC pharmacists will work with Tandigm physicians and their patients to streamline and individualize medication regimens. Outcomes expected to be realized from this initiative include reductions in adverse drug events (ADEs) and decreases in hospital readmission.
“At Tandigm Health, it all starts with healthcare quality,” said Tandigm Chief Medical Officer, Kenneth Goldblum, MD, FACP. “By prioritizing medication safety and effectiveness, we can help our physicians provide the best possible care to their patients as they transfer from a hospital or rehabiltation facilitiy to their homes. We believe TRHC’s unique medication risk mitigation platform and pharmacist follow-up with each patient will help us achieve this goal, and ultimately, reduce readmissions.”
TRHC offers the first prospective clinical solution to Medication Risk Mitigation, which is designed to increase patient safety by reducing the risk for multi-drug adverse drug events and personalizing a patient’s medication regimen. Its innovative technology platform is uniquely equipped to provide comprehensive medication risk management solutions to health plans and provider groups. TRHC’s services will further enhance Tandigm’s ability to provide network physicians with the tools and resources they need in order to deliver proactive, coordinated care.
“TRHC is delighted to partner with Tandigm Health to provide care transition medication risk management,” said TRHC Chairman and CEO Calvin H. Knowlton, PhD. “Medication safety is our highest priority. We are pleased to deploy our medication risk mitigation platform, MedWiseAdvisor®, and clinical pharmacists services, on behalf of Tandigm’s physicians and their thousands of patients.”
The collaboration with Tandigm is an expansion of TRHC’s Care Transitions offering, which it launched earlier this year.
