Pharmacy and EHR Information Exchange: A National Summit
Pharmacists and other practitioners increasingly must focus on data collection, analysis, and communication to maximize quality and reduce adverse events that lead to readmissions. As a result, they are seeking systems and software that provide them with real-time access to the information they need and enable them to communicate with other stakeholders. To date, there have been barriers, including lack of system/software interoperability and electronic health records that make it difficult for practitioners to access and/or input data. The American Society of Consultant Pharmacists, and the National Association for the Support of Long Term Care convened pharmacists, software vendors, and other stakeholders to survey the health information technology/electronic health records (HIT/EHR) landscape to identify challenges, and discuss possible solutions.
