© RxHub, 2004 Copyright 2005, RxHub 2 Agenda Who is RxHub RxHub’s Role in Electronic Prescribing Where the Prescribing Industry Connects
© RxHub, 2004 Copyright 2005, RxHub 3 What RxHub Is RxHub electronically routes up-to-date patient-specific medication history and pharmacy benefit information to caregivers at every point of care. Our end-to-end solution enables physicians to prescribe the most clinically appropriate and cost effective prescription to be sent electronically to the patient’s pharmacy of choice. RxHub’s mission is to partner with all stakeholders in the prescribing industry to improve patient safety, increase workflow efficiency and reduce the overall cost of health care delivery. RxHub was founded in 2001 by the then three largest PBMs— Advance PCS (acquired by Caremark Rx), Express Scripts and Medco Health Solutions as a cost recovery model (not for profit) business entity.
© RxHub, 2004 Copyright 2005, RxHub 4 What RxHub is Not Not a provider of point-of-care (POC) applications. Instead, RxHub is an information provider to POC applications companies, who use the information to make their applications—however designed and deployed—more robust. Those POCs could be ePrescribing-focused, EMRs, or practice management systems Not a handheld company. RxHub provides information that applications companies can deploy in multiple ways: on handhelds, on a desktop, printed out and stapled to the chart. The choice depends upon the POC’s strategy, not RxHub’s Not a database of patient benefit information or medication history. RxHub has a database of minimal patient demographics used to match a patient to the PBM providing coverage. The patient eligibility and medication history reside within the systems of the PBMs.
© RxHub, 2004 Copyright 2005, RxHub 5 RxHub Master Patient Index (MPI) Cornerstone of all RxHub transaction services Over 150 million active member records Only need limited demographics to match a patient Last name, first name, middle name, suffix, DOB, zip code, gender Robust matching algorithms Statistically sound Tuned for performance Tuned for minimal false positives –Expected probability of random false positive is less than 1 chance in 100 billion transactions –Over 14 million transactions process with no report of false positive match Routes the request to the appropriate data source RxHub is NOT a database (member directory service) RxHub does NOT house patient eligibility or medication history records Unprecedented in the health care industry
© RxHub, 2004 Copyright 2005, RxHub 6 The Definition of ePrescribing A process that goes beyond today’s current “writing” of a prescription. It incorporates a more comprehensive approach that involves: Access to information of clinical decision support Building (incrementally) of a patient database that is transportable and accessible to all parties deemed by the patient to require information in their care Long-term intention of realizing safety gains realized by the more integrated systems Reducing cost and increasing practice efficiency It’s all about the information and how it’s utilized…
