BIRMINGHAM, Ala., May 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Proxsys Rx, LLC has partnered with world-class mobile technology developer Catavolt, Inc. to help hospitals integrate outpatient pharmacy into the continuum of care, benefiting patients and health care providers by developing a bedside discharge delivery application that resides on a handheld tablet. Proxsys Rx provides hospitals with integrated on-site outpatient pharmacies which reduce readmissions, improve patient satisfaction and positively impact reimbursement rates for hospitals and health systems. Catavolt, Inc. is a leading provider of enterprise application mobility solutions.
Proxsys Rx provides hospitals and health care systems with an immediate financial benefit by acquiring, capitalizing and /or building outpatient pharmacies and assuming all operating and management costs. Patients can have their prescription drug prescriptions filled bedside without having to visit a pharmacy on their way home, and they can interact directly with the pharmacist via mobile device from their bedside.
"The design of the patient interface is critical to success; our partnership with Catavolt enabled us to create a platform that's efficient and easy to use. By deploying this new technology bedside, we have the opportunity to improve patient health by simplifying the discharge process for both the patient and the hospital. The results are healthier patients, better population health management, lower readmission rates because of better adherence to their doctor prescribed drug regimen, greater patient satisfaction and in turn, better reimbursement rates for the hospital," said Marc Calhoun, Proxsys Rx Chief Strategy Officer, Enterprise Solutions.
Security of sensitive healthcare data is a priority, and Calhoun cited Catavolt's expertise in customizing proprietary security protocols as a key attribute in selecting Catavolt as technology partner. Catavolt is recognized for providing unique, patented security architecture that provides superior risk mitigation when compared to competing mobile application development, deployment and management approaches.
"Proxsys Rx charged us with keeping patient data readily accessible in real-time, while ensuring it is secure and protected and not exposed to the Internet. Meeting that challenge helps us enable Proxsys Rx to deliver exceptional patient care", said Catavolt, Inc. Chief Executive Officer George Mashini. The Catavolt technology will be deployed throughout the Proxsys Rx Integrated Outpatient Pharmacy Provider network.
