MedAware, a medication safety monitoring technology, today announced a partnership with athenahealth, Inc. through the company’s Marketplace program. As part of the athenahealth® Marketplace, this newly integrated application is now available to athenahealth’s growing network of healthcare providers to help identify potential adverse drug events, analyze a patient’s risk of opioid dependency, alert providers to dangerous drug interactions, and more.
“We know what we’re doing is valuable, as we’re seeing more than a 40% behavior change rate,” said Gidi Stein, MD, PhD, Co-Founder and CEO of MedAware. “At MedAware, we provide continuous monitoring during the prescribing event and throughout a patient’s entire course of treatment. When MedAware triggers an indication of risk, a corresponding action is taken by the prescriber or care team.”
MedAware applies AI-based technology to healthcare data systems that functions similar to outlier detection technology used to identify potential credit card fraud. By leveraging near-real-time EHR and lab data, MedAware can continuously monitor a patient’s personal risk of medication-related adverse events and notify the care team of patients in need of intervention.
Dr. Stein adds, “What we provide goes beyond traditional medication alert systems and drug-drug interaction knowledge bases. Because no two patients or providers are alike, we apply a level of specificity and scrutiny that takes into account the appropriateness of a medication for an individual patient and an individual prescriber.”
athenahealth is a network-enabled, results-oriented software and services company that offers medical record, revenue cycle, patient engagement, and care coordination services for ambulatory and hospital clients nationwide. The company’s vision is to build a thriving ecosystem that delivers accessible, high-quality, and sustainable healthcare for all.
