The Future of Clinical Telepharmacy is Now
PipelineRx understands the complexity of the healthcare market and the disruptive changes occurring that impact acute-care and specialty hospitals. As the leading technology-enabled telepharmacy company, PipelineRx has built solutions that replicate and extend the exact roles and responsibilities of a hospital’s onsite clinical pharmacists. And with an over 90% acceptance rate of its clinical recommendations by hospital care providers, clients can be sure that medication safety, patient safety and client satisfaction are PipelineRx’s primary focus.
PipelineRx Clinical Telepharmacists (CTP) work in an IT secure environment that is fully compliant with HIPAA, ARRA/HITECH, Federal and State regulations. Using PipelineRx’s proprietary technology platform, our CTPs review, enter, verify and prioritize medication orders, consulting on medication therapy options with the patient’s caregivers via phone and becoming a trusted and seamless extension of nursing and pharmacy teams. All medication orders are carefully reviewed, and no orders are ever rejected. Once verification is provided, the approved medication orders are remotely entered into the hospital client’s pharmacy information system (PIS) including EPIC, Cerner, Siemens, HMM, Allscripts, Paragon, Meditech and others. PipelineRx’s verification process strictly follows our client’s defined and specific policies, procedures, operational workflow and clinical initiatives.
PipelineRx has created an efficient, cost-effective medication management service that enables hospitals to reduce direct expenses while simultaneously bringing first-shift clinical quality, on-demand staffing flexibility and service excellence to all covered shifts. PipelineRx uses a rigorous selection process to identify pharmacists with the highest clinical skills and experience level. Over 65% of PipelineRx’s CTPs have either a PYG1 or PGY2 advanced residency degree. Our CTPs are members of the PipelineRx staff – not contract employees in a centralized call center. PipelineRx’s average medication order turnaround response time is less than 15 minutes (often much faster) because its CTPs are able to focus solely on executing medication verification services and on communicating with the bedside medical and nursing staff. PipelineRx’s standard medication management service includes all consultation phone calls with clinical, nursing and medical staff, all interventions and recommendations, and all reporting, so hospital clients can predict budgets with certainty and manage their operating costs.
