MOORESTOWN, N.J., (June 13, 2019) – Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc.’s (TRHC) (NASDAQ: TRHC), a healthcare technology company advancing the field of medication safety, today announced a multi-year partnership agreement between its precision dosing software subsidiary DoseMe and Houston Methodist for the system-wide implementation of DoseMe’s proprietary dose optimization software, DoseMeRx®.
“DoseMe’s software is a straight-forward way to implement AUC-based decision making in vancomycin dosing, while at the same time minimizing the number of blood draws needed to inform dose adjustments for challenging patient cohorts,” said William L. Musick, PharmD, BCIDP, Clinical Specialist, Infectious Disease and Residency Program Director at Houston Methodist Hospital.
Houston Methodist healthcare system began using DoseMeRx software last year through an agreement with Houston Methodist Hospital. This new agreement will provide Houston Methodist’s network of pharmacy teams access to DoseMeRx across the system’s seven community hospitals, including Houston Methodist Baytown Hospital, Houston Methodist West Hospital, Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital, Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital, Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital, Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital, and Houston Methodist Continuing Care Hospital.
“We are so pleased to partner with Houston Methodist and its network of hospitals,” said TRHC Chairman and CEO Calvin H. Knowlton, PhD. “Houston Methodist’s decision to expand the use of DoseMeRx is clear recognition, by one of the nation’s leading health systems, that there is a need for best-practice standardization for the management of complex patients. DoseMeRx fulfills that need. The platform enables safer dosing techniques, improving quality and outcomes, while at the same time creating more efficient workflows generating significant savings for our customers like Houston Methodist.”
“We are honored to expand our partnership with the innovative clinical pharmacy departments within the Houston Methodist system, as they continue to lead the way in clinical excellence and patient care here in the United States,” said Charles Cornish, CEO of DoseMe.
