WICHITA, Kan., Aug. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pulse Systems, Inc., an industry-leading provider of Electronic Health Record (EHR), Practice Management and Revenue Cycle Management solutions, announced today the launch of its new PulseRx 5.0 solution. PulseRx 5.0 is a complete medication management solution designed to streamline practice workflows and increase productivity through electronic medication orders, renewals, clinical decision support, clinical alerts, and formulary checking, allowing providers to quickly and easily generate prescriptions, manage a patient's medication and allergy records, review benefits and formulary information, and efficiently process refill requests.
PulseRx 5.0 provides eligible providers with complete prescription creation and medication management capabilities through robust, customizable panels within Pulse's 2014 Certified, Complete EHR. The solution is designed to simplify and highlight a patient's allergy information and current medications through at-a-glance summaries and color-coded icons, with full access to a patient's detailed information through easy-to-navigate tabs within Pulse's Complete EHR.
Additionally, the PulseRx 5.0 solution displays a comprehensive view of a patient's prescription benefits and formulary data, and allows users to quickly locate pharmacies within their demographic region utilizing a dynamic search engine. Based on the particular medication, formulation, and dose, the solution can display applicable copays, coverage factors such as gender and age limits, step and alternative medications, as well as the need for prior authorizations. PulseRx 5.0 also automates refill requests in order to eliminate workflow redundancies.
PulseRx 5.0 features an updated look and feel that follows a Windows 8 themed user friendly tile layout allowing for panel control vs. list control and is also fully-integrated into a patient's chart which makes reconciling and managing patient medications and allergies easier than ever before. PulseRx 5.0 also contains a more robust database that provides fully codified supplies, equipment, medications and more, while giving users the ability to manage controlled substances down to the state level. The new PulseRx 5.0 will be given to all current PulseRx clients at no charge.
"Our provider clients can trust that the portfolio of solutions we offer is always evolving and improving to stay ahead of the competition to give our clients' practices an advantage," said Jeff Burton, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pulse Systems. "Quite simply, PulseRx 5.0 saves healthcare providers time and is a solution that addresses many of the key concerns within the healthcare industry regarding e-prescribing and medication management, while also giving providers the peace of mind that they are administering precise prescription care to their patients."
PulseRx 5.0 is certified by Surescripts® to connect to the Surescripts network for prescription routing service. Pulse is a multi-year Surescripts White Coat of Quality Award Winner, which is Surescripts' highest recognition award for software developers that uphold its strict standards for clinical quality and best practices in e-prescribing.
