RxHub, the electronic prescribing venture of the nation's three largest pharmacy benefit managers, will integrate its technology into point-of-care charge-capture systems offered by Medix Resources, a New York City-based vendor, the companies said Tuesday.
"The addition of Medix Resources as a partner will allow RxHub to expand the availability of its reliable, up-to-date, patient-specific information to physicians at the point of care," RxHub CEO James Bradley says in a statement. "Having immediate, convenient access to this data will result in more informed decision-making and enhanced ability to treat patients safely and cost-effectively."
RxHub officials in St. Paul, Minn., were not immediately available for comment. A Pennsylvania-based media representative for Medix Resources did not know how many physicians use Medix Resources systems.
A call to MedixResources in New York was not returned.
RxHub, St. Paul, Minn., is in the process of building a national data network to connect physicians, pharmacies, PBMs and payers for the purpose of sending, fulfilling and billing for prescription drugs electronically.
