althRamp develops and markets the CarePoint and CareGiver technology suites, while RxRite markets an electronic prescribing application for BlackBerry, created by Research In Motion (RIM). |
As part of the partnership, RxRite said it will develop a version of CarePoint for BlackBerry devices utilizing HealthRamp's point-of-care technology architecture.
The product is expected to be released in the early 2nd quarter of this year.
The version of CarePoint for BlackBerry will include the availability of patient-specific formulary (prescription drug coverage information), patient medication history, warnings to indicate potential adverse drug events and the secure transmission of a prescription to the patient's pharmacy of choice.
Andrew Brown, Ramp CEO, said: "By adding BlackBerry to our arsenal of support devices, we expect to significantly increase our opportunities for physician adoption and technology partnerships."
