Scientific Technologies Corporation and Ateb, Inc. Launch New Product at NACDS TSE
STC and Ateb, Inc., announce the integration of the STC bi-directional immunization data exchange between Ateb's portal and state immunization information systems.
Scottsdale, Arizona (PRUnderground) August 24th, 2015
Scientific Technologies Corporation (STC) and Ateb, Inc., the industry’s leading provider of pharmacy-based patient care solutions, are proud to announce the integration of the STC bi-directional immunization interface, ImmsLink, into Ateb’s online Patient Management Access Portal (PMAP).
This strategic partnership enables pharmacists to streamline their communication to report immunizations to the appropriate state immunization information system in real time.
By offering direct connectivity to pharmacy management systems nationwide, Ateb’s solution allows bidirectional data flow, which in turn empowers pharmacies, to harness their data and actively, consistently, and comprehensively assist patients in managing their health. By accessing this critical data, pharmacists are better positioned to access patient immunization histories and vaccine forecasting at the point of care and prior to patient outreach.
STC’s industry-leading vaccine forecaster takes the uncertainty out of recommending additional shots by validating for pharmacists overdue patient immunizations so they can enhance the patient care experience while simultaneously increasing their bottom line.
A central tool for patient intervention management, Ateb’s PMAP online portal provides a holistic view of the patient and opportunities to drive beneficial patient engagement, thereby driving healthy patient outcomes.
“Complying with state immunization reporting laws has been and continues to be a challenge for pharmacies across the country especially during peak flu season. Moreover, seamlessly revealing immunization intelligence to clinical pharmacists at the point of care is essential to offering and providing patients with much needed additional vaccines.
By combining STC’s public health immunization registry and interoperability experience, our ImmsLink pharmacy module and Ateb’s industry leading patient management tool, this partnership delivers a complete solution to clients across the country.” stated Todd Watkins, STC President.
Ateb’s solution provides guidance to the pharmacy staff and allows them to document patient interventions and schedule follow-ups. Uses range from increasing the quantity and scope of vaccinations provided within their immunization programs, to providing comprehensive medication reviews, sync patient medications, diabetes education, expanding existing prescription base due to improved patient adherence, and positively impacting their patients’ lives.
“Ateb’s differentiation as a strategic partner resides in our powerhouse of pharmacy operations, technology, analytics, data integration, and clinical expertise,” stated Frank Sheppard, President and CEO of Ateb. “STC and Ateb are excited to launch this functionality during the 2015 National Association of Chain Drug Stores “Total Store Expo” in Denver this weekend. The combination of patient accessibility, big data and predictive analytics uniquely positions community pharmacies and their pharmacists to be key players for providing affordable, effective health care to patients.”
