Helping pharmacists perform better, more efficient medication reviews
Toronto, Canada, March 1, 2021 — TaperMD, maker of a cutting-edge online medication review platform, today announced a technology partnership with PointClickCare, the leader in cloud‐based healthcare software for the long‐term and post‐acute care (LTPAC) market.
TaperMD’s intuitive medication-review dashboard and clinical support tools are now seamlessly connected to relevant PointClickCare patient information and medication history in real-time.
Pharmacists benefit by seeing information customized to their patients, including evidence-based support tools, clinical guidance, and methods to triage medication issues. TaperMD also tracks the history of recommendations and easily generates reports to share with nursing staff and prescribers, allowing pharmacists to focus on high-value tasks that improve patient outcomes and to preemptively catch medication issues before any adverse outcomes occur.
“This is a milestone in expanding the access to our medication review tools, and will ultimately help improve the lives of thousands of patients in PointClickCare facilities,” says James Wood, TaperMD Chief Product Officer.
Dr. Dee Mangin, TaperMD Chief Medical Officer and Professor of Family Medicine at McMaster University says, “effective medication management is the biggest opportunity we have for improving health care and the lives of older adults in the next 30 years. TaperMD is a tool to turbocharge this with better and more efficient pharmacist-led reviews.”
“This partnership with TaperMD is further testament to our continually growing partner network, and our commitment to serving the needs of the facilities, staff, and medical professionals that support their operations,” says Chris Beekman, Marketplace Director for PointClickCare.
Additional information regarding the integration can be found on TaperMD’s listing on the PointClickCare Marketplace.
TaperMD integrates with regular consultation processes among medical professionals as they seek to manage multiple medications for their patients. TaperMD’s medication review tool was developed in conjunction with the Department of Family Medicine, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada, and is being used in clinical trials in multiple locations in Canada and Australia at multiple community and LTPAC sites.
