LOUISVILLE, Ky – Appriss Inc., a leading technology provider for risk assessment and analytics in public safety and healthcare, will showcase its commitment to helping the healthcare industry combat the drug abuse and overprescribing epidemic in the US at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference and exhibition as part of The Office of the National Coordinator’s (ONC) Interoperability Showcase on April 12-16 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
“We will demonstrate how the NARxCHECK analytics engine can save physicians’ time and cut operating costs while improving patients’ safety when integrated into an existing electronic medical record system,” said Mike Davis, CEO of Appriss, Inc. (http://www.appriss.com). “NARxCHECK is becoming an important clinical tool for physicians,” he stated.
A real-time report created by the analytics solution, NARxCHECK (http://www.appriss.com/narxcheck.html), provides three key components for prescribers and dispensers: a score, an interactive graph, and the detailed information about each prescription. An algorithm assesses and computes the history from a prescriptions dispensed database, including statewide PDMP programs, to highlight when there might be an issue with addiction, abuse or diversion of narcotics, sedatives and stimulants.
By accurately assessing the number of providers, dispensing pharmacies, drug equivalents, overlapping prescriptions in history and the current number of active prescriptions, physicians can have peace-of-mind prescribing practices allowing practitioners to concentrate prescription review history efforts on those who may be abusing or diverting the drugs to the streets.
Appriss provides data-driven solutions to fulfill our mission of keeping communities safe and informed. Partnering with public safety, healthcare, and leading private and public companies, Appriss delivers solutions that prevent fraud, mitigate risk, fight crime, ensure compliance, increase public safety and save lives.
