MINNEAPOLIS, June 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Zipnosis, the leading provider of virtual care software solutions to health systems, today announced that its platform has been certified by Surescripts® to add Medication History services to its virtual care platform. As the nation's leading health information network, Surescripts offers providers insight into real-time medication history validation and prescription access. With this certification, Zipnosis is expanding on its existing Surescripts E-Prescribing certification, which has been part of the platform since 2013.
In the updated provider workflow, medication history information from Surescripts will display alongside patient-provided medication history. This will give prescribers access to critically important information on their patient's current and past medications from pharmacy benefit managers and community pharmacies, with the added assurance of patient-validated information.
"Ensuring the safety and efficacy of care delivered through the Zipnosis platform continues to be our highest priority," said Dr. Kevin Smith, Chief Medical Information Officer at Zipnosis. "Incorporating Surescripts medication history information as part of the provider workflow further enhances their ability to make clinically sound prescribing decisions and streamlines their experience with the platform."
In addition to the new Surescripts certification, the Zipnosis platform provides additional safety features, including medication interaction and allergy checking as well as prescribing precautions related to pregnancy and breastfeeding. This functionality helps providers to efficiently and safely prescribe medications based on the individual patient history information.
