Integrated Direct messaging empowers community pharmacies to play an active role in patient care, driving healthier outcomes
June 19, 2015 – Rockville, MD – Ateb, Inc., the industry’s leading provider of pharmacy-based patient care solutions with over 500,000 active pharmacy patients nationwide, has selected Secure Exchange Solutions to help Ateb’s pharmacy partners fully participate in patient care management.
Representing the point-of-care most frequented by patients, pharmacists are ideally positioned to counsel patients and ensure they take their prescribed medications and understand their importance to better health. With more patient information accessible through the use of Direct secure messaging integrated into Ateb’s products, pharmacists can ensure a higher standard of care coordination, patient and prescriber communication and timely follow-up care for patients, thereby reducing preventable readmissions, reinforcing positive behaviors in patients and driving sustained patient medication adherence throughout their growing patient populations.
“Most hospitals and physicians already use Direct secure messaging to exchange patient information; therefore, including pharmacies in the patient care management process empowers them to improve patient adherence and drive healthier outcomes,” said Frank Sheppard, President and CEO of Ateb. “We chose to partner with Secure Exchange to offer our customers the industry’s best directory services and connectivity, and to help streamline the exchange of information with hospitals and physicians.”
“We are pleased to be working with one of the leading innovators in the pharmacy space,” said Dan Kazzaz, CEO of Secure Exchange. “We are proud to be a part of Ateb’s mission to improve overall care through more informed encounters between pharmacies and patients.”
Secure Exchange complements Ateb’s mission to assist its pharmacy partners in the provision of pharmacy-based patient care by facilitating access to receive patient information from hospitals and providers and to actively communicate with physicians about ongoing patient care. Interoperable secure messaging continues to build on the promise of electronic health records to establish broader care management. Pharmacists, often the most visible and accessible members of the healthcare team, can now use this important data to actively and consistently improve the patient care process and drive healthy outcomes related to medication use.
