MOORESTOWN, N.J., April 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc. (“TRHC”) (NASDAQ: TRHC), a healthcare technology company advancing safe use of medications, today announced a partnership with athenahealth, Inc. to provide TRHC’s MedWise® technology through the athenahealth Marketplace program. MedWise medication decision support tools identify simultaneous, accumulative, multi-drug interactions, enabling providers to improve medication safety, efficacy, and adherence. As part of the athenahealth Marketplace, this newly integrated application is now available to athenahealth’s growing network of healthcare providers, in particular those in need of quality improvement and total cost reduction.
With this new integration, the MedWise Risk Score is available at the point of prescribing in athenaClinicals® to help clinicians understand patient risk levels and refer them to certified MedWise Advisor™ (CMWA) pharmacists as appropriate. CMWAs provide recommendations for reducing risk scores through interventions that improve medication outcomes, including falls, emergency department visits, and hospitalization rates, ultimately reducing total medical spend.
“TRHC is pleased to contribute its safe use of medication technology to athenahealth’s network,” said TRHC Chairman and CEO, Calvin H. Knowlton, PhD. “Our unique medication safety platform, MedWise, helps pharmacists to optimize medication regimens by calculating patients’ MedWise Risk Scores™.”
