Phoenix, AZ (September 16, 2014) – Cubex, a leading provider of pharmacy and supply management solutions to the Healthcare market, today announced the launch of an electronic interface with RxWorks, a leading practice management software provider to the Animal Health market.
Available to RxWorks® [www.rxworks.com] users with Cubex automated dispensing cabinets, this new integration enables data sharing and centralizes patient treatment information between Cubex and RxWorks via three distinct interfaces: patient admission/discharge (ADT), patient medication availability (Profile) and billing. RxWorks is the first veterinary practice management software provider to offer interoperability in all three areas, reducing manual processes, streamlining workflow, increasing charge capture, and improving regulatory compliance. “We are delighted to establish two-way information exchange between RxWorks and Cubex Inventory Management Solutions.
“The benefits align perfectly with our goal of helping practices turn missed opportunities into profits,” said Bryan Williams, RxWorks’ Marketing Manager. “Billing and inventory management have always been a part of RxWorks, but we understand the potential for mistakes that are inherent in any manual medication and supply management process. This new automated function gives the security and discipline that’s needed to prevent those expensive errors.”
At the core of the new solution are Cubex [www.cubexsystem.com] automated dispensing cabinets. When a patient is checked into the practice using RxWorks, the patient’s data and medication order profile is entered and an invoice is created for the patient. This information is then automatically sent to the Cubex cabinet. When the technician logs into the cabinet, they select the patient and the medication order profile is presented on the screen. The technician selects the medications they wish to remove from the list and dispenses them from the cabinet. Next, the transactional data is automatically sent to RxWorks to reconcile what was created on the original invoice for the patient. If additional items are removed for the patient, not originally on the Rx invoice, they are automatically added to the patient invoice. This closed loop system tracks supplies and medications as they’re used which significantly improves accuracy. The Cubex cabinets have ample storage space as well as refrigerated item management options, plus password and fingerprint-protected entry to keep inventory secure.
“It’s become essential for practice management systems and inventory management devices to talk to each other in order to improve efficiency and accuracy across complex processes like medication and controlled substance management,” said Anton Visser, President and CEO of Cubex. “Delivering technology that supports and enhances clinical workflow across the practice is a key priority for us as we work to help our customers reduce costs and increase bottom-line revenue.”
