Medisafe Presents Records Integration at ONC’s 2nd Interoperability Forum
Demonstrates how health data will be put in patients’ hands starting this fall
WASHINGTON, DC — August 8, 2018. Medisafe is showcasing its empowering patient health technology at The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT’s (ONC) 2nd Interoperability Forum on August 6th-8th, 2018 in Washington, DC.
Medisafe was selected by the ONC to showcase its integration with Apple Health Records, due out this fall, in which iPhone users can easily import their U.S. prescriptions and health information directly into the Medisafe platform for ease of use tracking their medications and health measurements.
“We are pleased to be taking part in ONC’s Interoperability Forum to showcase the real-world impacts of giving people more control of their health data.” said Omri Shor, CEO of Medisafe. “We’re proud to be among the leaders of the healthcare industry who are committed to making interoperability happen.”
With the integration, people will be able to effortlessly import all their medications into Medisafe from multiple sources, paving the way for patients to be more empowered and engaged with their data. People using Medisafe will benefit from improved accuracy, updates and medication information imported directly from their EMR – no matter how many providers they see.
It makes a difference because every day, thousands of people take their medications at the wrong time, in wrong amounts, or not at all. This leads to more than 125,000 American deaths annually due to preventable medication errors and more than $290 billion in wasted medical expenses.
Since Medisafe launched in 2012, we’ve empowered 5 million people in more than 200 countries and territories to manage over 1 billion doses through personalized reminders, custom medication information and connectivity. By taking control of their health, people using Medisafe can fully understand their medication impacts and avoid potentially harmful drug-to-drug interactions.
Medisafe has shown proven results, including:
- Reporting double-digit impact on medication adherence in hypertension patients;
- Presenting ISPOR research showing statistically significant adherence increases across multiple chronic conditions;
- Being named the “Top Free App for Medication Management by the IQVIA Institute for Human Data Science (previously QuintilesIMS);`
Integrating records with Medisafe’s personalization will result in more accuracy, additional insights, and smoother collaboration across the healthcare continuum so people can live their lives to the fullest.
