Posted by Yehuda Bechar on Thu, Mar 17, 2016 @ 09:02 PM

Avicenna Medical Systems, a medical software developer, is pleased to announce that The Department of Veterans Affairs Veterans VISN 10, will be deploying  Avicenna’s medication reconciliation  solution,  MedRec, across 13  medical centers and 58 outpatient clinics.

The newest release of Avicenna’s MedRec Tool includes a Discharge Navigator and the ability to write notes to CPRS; the VA’s Computerized Patient Record System. Medication Reconciliation is a crucial step to avoid medical errors and optimize care.  For caregivers, the process of verifying a patient’s medication history can be cumbersome and time-consuming.   With Avicenna’s MedRec Tool, VA caregivers and clinical pharmacists have the patient’s complete medication history within easy reach.    MedRec’s unique design integrates with the Veteran Health Information Systems Technology and Architecture (VistA) and CPRS, combining VA pharmacy and VistA/CPRS data with a user-friendly interface that improves, not impedes, caregiver workflow.   MedRec’s versatility enables customization to meet the VA’s unique needs in both inpatient and ambulatory clinical settings across multiple healthcare locations.  MedRec also provides patients with an easy to understand after visit summary that not only includes changes to their medications but also last vital signs, next appointments, etc. 

Erdwing Coronado, CEO and founder of Avicenna Medical Systems, said: “We are extremely happy to partner with the VA VISN 10. We believe Veterans care should be more efficient. Our systems are designed to improve clinical management protocols by increasing efficiency and productivity, while reducing unnecessary costs and the potential for human error.”
