Historical Hole in Healthcare

​​
There has been a need for providers to better know what medications patients are taking (and how much they are taking) to avoid drug-drug interactions.  

There are 180,000 deaths in the US each year due to Adverse Drug Events (ADE's), ​which is the second most common reason for lawsuits against physicians in the US, Austrailia, France, and Canada (LifeScience, July, 2013).

In a study from Vanderbilt Health system in TN, they found that:
        •       43% of Patients do NOT have at least one Prescribed Medication in their blood
        •       22% of Medications listed in Medical Records are Incorrect
        •       49% of Patients are Out-of-Range on at least one Medication
 
There are new regulations in place with MACRA that mandate that providers must reconcile medications (this means all medications prescribed to the patient from all providers that have prescribed a medication to the patient – not just prescriptions written by one provider) in any transition of care (a new patient, hospital admission, etc.) – but how?

Medication in their Blood

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
The "Brown Bag" Approach

Historically, providers ask patients what they are taking.  Medicare refers to this as the “brown bag” approach (patients bring their medications in a brown bag to the provider or hospital admission nurse to review).   Even if a provider can accurately surmise what medications a patient has, how does the provider know how much of the medication is in the patient’s system?​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ New Technology

MedRx is a laboratory developed fingerstick blood test that provides objective data for medication reconciliation on a specialized mass spectrometry platform for over 300 medications! This covers 90% of the commonly prescribed medications. Now, a provider (physician, hospital, home health agency, etc.) can KNOW what medications the patient is taking and how much of the medication is in their system!  ​​​​​​​​​

Simple Use​​

​With a few drops of blood on a FDA approved class 1 microsampling collection device, the provider can take out the expensive and risky guesswork of reconciling medication with patients. No phlebotomist is needed.  Just one simple fingerstick (4 drops of 20uL).

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Advantages

  • Patient Safety - Improve patient care and reduce drug-drug interactions
  • Reduced Liability - Avoid lawsuits from preventable ADE's 
  • Save Time - A simple finger stick and receive a 16-page report
  • Increase practice income - MACRA compliance

The MedRx Lab Report Will Show the Following:

​​​​​​​​​​​​ Comprehensive Test Menu: The current Med Rec panel test covers 22 Drug Classes which include 272 Prescription Drug Assays, plus 30 illicit drugs, and most common OTC’s.

Actual Quantitative Results: Know exactly how much of the tested drug metabolite is in your patient, not just what is present.

Half-life Information: Every report has a dedicated area showing the specific half-life of each unique drug metabolite tested.

Drug-Drug Interaction (DDI) Report: You will know what drugs have Minor, Major, and/or Serious Interactions from the drugs using the most common software system in hospitals for drug to drug interaction in the United States.



Disclaimer: MedRx medication reconciliation test utilizes the Mitra Collection device (Patent No's 20180161018, 20170128934, 20170071520)
