Healthcare providers using RxNT solutions will have instant access to state prescription drug monitoring program information at the point-of-care
RxNT, a leader in healthcare technology solutions, announced a partnership with Appriss Health, a provider of a comprehensive substance abuse disorder (SUD) platform. This alliance will expand the functionality of the RxNT e-prescribing and electronic health records (EHR) solutions by adding direct access to state prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) information through the Appriss PMP Gateway. Healthcare providers using the RxNT systems will be better equipped to identify and prevent substance use, resulting in better patient safety.
“Our technology solutions are already one of the most user- and budget-friendly systems in the ambulatory care marketplace today. By combining Appriss’ leading-edge data analytics with our proven solution, we’re giving physicians a more powerful tool to safely prescribe controlled substances and help reduce the incidences of substance abuse,” said Randy Boldyga, RxNT President and CEO.
According to the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of Americans dying from a drug overdose has increased by over 62% in the five-year span between 2013 and 2017. Economists estimate that the cost of the heroin and prescription painkiller abuse will be $500 billion from 2018 to 2020. The alliance between RxNT and Appriss Health gives practitioners the ability to better monitor and manage controlled substance prescriptions 24/7 from anywhere.
The RxNT and Appriss Health integration is currently underway and expected to be concluded in the near future, with an exact deployment date to be announced. More information will be communicated in the coming months. RxNT users can contact their sales representative with questions.
