San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) July 15, 2010
A dynamic innovation in prescription medication information designed for the healthcare industry is now available at the touch of a button. Top200Rx™ is exclusive prescription medication software that offers information through the use of touch screen kiosks. The proprietary Top200Rx™ software is the key to the consumer-friendly information available in 77 languages.
Top200Rx™ target markets include domestic and international high volume retail pharmacies, pharmaceutical corporations, government agencies including military healthcare facilities and educational institutions that can provide access to Top200Rx™ information for their customers. Each medication description includes value-added information such as comprehensive lists of over-the-counter or OTC medications; herbal interactions, medicines in the same drug class and how to monitor drug efficacy. “Top200Rx™ enhances the pharmacy consult because we know that not all consumers fully understand the information and do not ask their pharmacist or physician for language-specific information and clarification.” said Arteaga-Gamboa.“Top200Rx™ enhances the pharmacy consult because we know that not all consumers fully understand the information and do not ask their pharmacist or physician for language-specific information and clarification.” said Arteaga-Gamboa.
The prescription medication monographs have been exclusively written for Top200Rx™ in partnership with the University of the Incarnate Word, Feik School of Pharmacy, Drug Information Center in San Antonio, Texas. All Top200Rx™ monographs meet the requirements set forth by the FDA for consumer information.
In addition to retail kiosks the digital software can be accessed from anywhere in the world through IPAD and IPhone Apps. By having this information in more than 75 languages, Top200Rx™ is poised to be a primary global digital prescription medication resource.
“Top200Rx™ embraces the opportunity and ever-changing demographics to market our product worldwide,” said Omega Arteaga-Gamboa, President/CEO of Top200Rx, Inc. “In 2009, U.S. retail pharmacies filled 3.6 billion prescriptions, amounting to sales of $217 billion. The global pharmaceutical market is forecast to reach USD $1.043 trillion in 2012 placing Top200Rx™ in an industry positioned for continued growth.
The number one problem in treating illness is failure to take prescription medication correctly costing the nation's healthcare system approximately $100 billion annually. Top200Rx™ meets a critical information need for the more than 45% of Americans who currently take one or more prescription medications and those facing future medication needs. The challenge is placed upon the entire healthcare industry to utilize emerging technology offered by Top200Rx™ to expand healthcare literacy and encourage compliance.
“Thirty years ago my father had extensive bypass surgery and was prescribed numerous medications and given an additional amount of information on heart disease. All were written in English; Spanish language materials were not available,” said Arteaga-Gamboa. “Although my father speaks English his language of choice is Spanish. Since that experience, my focus has been to develop and implement solutions that enhance health literacy and provide straightforward information which is pivotal to health and wellness.”
Consumers have the power to monitor their health and wellness through the correct use of prescription medication and resources such as Top200Rx™. In addition to being an adjunct to the pharmacist consult required by OBRA (Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act, 1990) rules when dispensing prescription medication, healthcare professionals will also benefit from using Top200Rx™ as a communication tool. The use of Top200Rx™ does not substitute for the physician or pharmacist interaction with consumers; it is merely an additional resource and serves as the link that will secure pharmacist/physician direction with consumer compliance.
“Top200Rx™ provides a communication link between physician, pharmacist and consumers globally, whether in the U.S., Asia or Latin America. Top200Rx™ gives the consumer basic, beneficial and reliable information that will enable them to better understand prescriptions in their language and influence their health and quality of life.”
