ROCKVILLE, Md.—May 25, 2017—DrFirst, the market leader in delivering intelligent medication management solutions that improve patient safety, announced its sponsorship of MEDITECH’s 2017 International MUSE Conference supported by a series of showcase events.  DrFirst executives will present at a total of seven educational sessions and product showcases during the weeklong conference of the electronic health record (EHR) vendor’s largest user group meeting. The conference takes place May 30 through June 2 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas.
In addition to the speaking sessions, DrFirst will be offering pre-scheduled medication reconciliation data quality improvement analysis reviews where MEDITECH users can identify their specific opportunity for medication history quality improvement. DrFirst will review the users’ actual data to identify the percentage data quality gain that can be achieved, driving fewer mistakes, lower adverse drug events (ADEs) and readmissions. MEDITECH users must respond prior to the conference to secure one of the limited timeslots available.
