SAN DIEGO, July 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- InteliSys Health™, pioneer of the first real-time prescription transparency platform, announced today that is has been selected as a finalist in this year's Fierce Innovation Awards: Healthcare Edition 2017, an awards program from the publisher of FierceHealthcare. InteliSys Health was recognized as a finalist in the category of Clinical Information Management.
InteliSys Health was selected as a finalist for its innovative, industry leading product, RxStream™. All applications were evaluated based on the following criteria: Competitive Advantage, Financial Impact/Value, Market Need, and Overall Innovation. Applicants with the top 3 scores in each category were selected as finalists.
"For far too long, providers have been prescribing medications blindfolded, without knowing the price to the patient," said InteliSys Health CEO Tom Borzilleri. "Cost is a significant factor to medication adherence, so this puts patients, providers and payors at a disadvantage. We are removing the opaqueness of prescription drug pricing and have made it our mission to lower costs to patients and insurers, and provide actionable data between pharmacies, doctors and insurers to make sure that the drugs prescribed are actually filled and refilled. We are honored to be recognized by the Fierce Innovation Awards program."
Lack of affordability is the biggest challenge for medication adherence, and improving adherence is a key to improving population health and patient safety. InteliSys Health is shifting the paradigm of medication pricing with the industry's first real-time prescription transparency platform, RxStream™, delivering an intelligent, dynamic view of the lowest prescription drug pricing, drug fills and refills, and alternative drug therapies at the point of care and within the e-prescribing workflow. By aligning the needs of patients, providers and payors, InteliSys Health's analytics-driven platform drives maximum cost savings, workflow efficiencies, patient safety and health outcomes while supporting a successful transition to risk-based alternative payment models.
RxStream is the only drug price transparency solution that "follows the script" to make sure the drug prescribed is taken properly, reporting back to clinicians, giving them an opportunity to intervene and resolve medication adherence issues before adverse events occur.
