Retail Management Solutions is pleased to announce that they were the recipient of an Innovation Award from the Retail Solutions Providers Association (RPSA) for 2013.
In anticipation of a key provision of the Affordable Care Act, Retail Management Solutions had a solution ready to offer that addresses hospital patient discharge and extends the reach of hospital outpatient pharmacies up to the patient bedside.
As it turns out, 97% of patients leave the hospital with a prescription but never fill it. That makes prescription non-compliance the number one reason for hospital patient re-admittance. Medicare is heavily evaluating these readmission rates, and if hospitals exceed certain readmission levels, they are open to considerable fines. Those readmission numbers and the associated costs prompted Retail Management Solutions to bring to the pharmacy market EvolutionPOS, a mobile POS technology, which enables hospitals to deliver prescriptions to a patient during discharge, capture signatures and counseling notes, and process the payment, all on one small, portable device.
Brad Jones, President and CEO, said, "We were very excited to hear we won this award. Our development team has worked very hard to bring this technology to market, and the reception in the marketplace has been outstanding."
EvolutionPOS is a true innovation and a total paradigm shift in the way pharmacists interact with Point-of-Sale technology. RMS helps outpatient pharmacies' shift from being an employee convenience to becoming a critical facilitator in reducing re-admittance rates. With the help of EvolutionPOS, hospitals now have an incentive and a simple, inexpensive solution.
