Lacey, WA (PRWEB) May 22, 2014
Retail Management Solutions, a leading pharmacy point of sale provider, took part in the annual Health Connect Partners Hospital Pharmacy Conference from May 5 to May 7 in St. Louis, Missouri. Leading professionals, including hospital pharmacy directors and GPO executives, gathered at the Hyatt Regency hotel to participate in educational sessions and establish networking opportunities.
The conference provided ample opportunities to forge new business relationships. During the Reverse EXPO sessions, attendees took on the role of the "exhibitor" by having a fixed table location, and vendors walked the floor discussing their capabilities and offerings. Retail Management Solutions took advantage of the Reverse EXPO to showcase its updated mobile pharmacy POS system, EvolutionPOS. EvolutionPOS enables hospital pharmacies to quickly and efficiently deliver medications directly to patients' rooms at the time the patient is being discharged. This significantly reduces the number of patients who leave the hospital without getting their prescriptions filled, saving hospitals from significant financial pain and decreasing the likelihood of patient readmission.
Hospital outpatient pharmacies can take advantage of this technology by dispensing the patient's discharge prescriptions, and using the EvolutionPOS device, capture payment and signature at the bedside during patient discharge. The EvolutionPOS wirelessly communicates this payment and signature data back to the pharmacy and prints the receipt, all while maintaining industry security standards. Studies have shown that patients who are discharged without receiving their discharge medications have a higher risk of readmission. Because of this, Medicare has started to fine hospitals that have the highest numbers of patient readmission for a recurring health issue. By having outpatient pharmacies provide medications during discharge, the hospital can greatly reduce readmission rates and the risk of Medicare fines, while still adding additional revenue to the hospital's bottom-line.
