In this article:
MOORESTOWN, N.J., (November 13, 2019) – Tabula Rasa HealthCare® (NASDAQ: TRHC), a healthcare technology company advancing the field of medication safety, expands its hospital service footprint through subsidiary company DoseMe’s strategic partnership with St. Joseph’s/Candler, the premier not-for-profit health provider in Savannah, GA. DoseMe will provide precision dosing services across the provider’s specialized inpatient and outpatient hospitals. St. Joseph’s/Candler is the first health system in Georgia to partner with DoseMe and the 140th site across the United States, Europe, Africa, and the Asia Pacific.
With the deployment of DoseMe’s web-based dose optimization solution, DoseMeRx℠, St. Joseph’s/Candler will transition to an AUC-based vancomycin dosing strategy. The move is prompted by the revised therapeutic monitoring guidelines of vancomycin by Rybak et al for the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, the Infectious Diseases Society of America, the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society and the Society of Infectious Disease Pharmacists.
“At St. Joseph’s/Candler, we are always looking to provide the best outcomes for our patients by using evidence-based approaches”, states St. Joseph’s/Candler Clinical Pharmacist in Internal Medicine Dustin Orvin, PharmD. “DoseMe’s Bayesian dosing platform will make it easy and cost-effective for our pharmacists to apply the new national dosing recommendations for vancomycin. We foresee huge benefits for our patients in the seamless application of AUC dosing and performance analysis, ensuring our patients are getting the best outcome possible.”
DoseMeRx is a unique platform that uses Bayesian dosing to calculate a precise dose to achieve a clinical target. The first in the world to develop precision dosing software for clinical practice, DoseMe’s solutions help to optimize dosing and streamline operations, reduce adverse drug events and decrease costs.
“The expansion of DoseMe into another US hospital further demonstrates the value DoseMeRx provides hospitals looking for best-practice standardization,” said TRHC Chairman and CEO Calvin. H. Knowlton, PhD. “The platform enables safer dosing techniques, improving quality and outcomes. It creates more efficient workflows and generates significant savings for our customers.”
“We’re delighted St Joseph’s/Candler has recognized not only the clinical benefits of DoseMeRx, but also its workflow efficiencies and mechanisms for facilitating the transition to AUC-based vancomycin dosing,” says DoseMe CEO Charles Cornish.
