Workflow efficiency and multifactor authentication
And savings to the tune of millions
Geisinger Health system serves three million patients in PA and NJ while maintaining a culture of innovation focused on better patient care and outcomes.
In an effort to reduce the national public health crisis of opioid abuse, they implemented electronic prescribing for controlled substances (EPCS), taking the prescription from the patient’s hands and delivering it directly to the pharmacy.
In the end, EPCS not only helped reduce overall opioid prescribing by about 50%, but has also helped the organization realize a cost savings of about $1 million per month by recouping lost clinical productivity and diversion control costs.
