Through its Xeris technology, excelleRx Inc. (Philadelphia, PA) currently offers a customized software system for mobile cellular devices that provides real-time patient record management and symptom reporting. The tool helps caregivers fulfill patient needs more accurately, efficiently, and timely by providing an additional way to manage and document a patient's medication care plan. Since the product's launch in January 2006, XerisMobile transactions have grown to nearly 6500 per month, ranging from refills to assessment documentation. By February 2007, 74 hospice organizations around the country had implemented XerisMobile.


To make patient information even more accessible to clinicians, excelleRx has integrated their software with Research in Motion's BlackBerry unit (Research in Motion, Ontario, Canada), Sprint/Nextel's wireless functionality (Sprint Nextel, Reston, VA), and Telenav's Global Positioning System navigational systems (Telenav, Sunnyvale, CA). This integration makes XerisMobile a convenient, seamless addition or companion to clinicians' existing technological conveniences. Clinicians can partner with excelleRx for the full complement of device plus software or just add the software to their own devices. XerisMobile is HIPAA compliant and offers healthcare professionals access to patient information, pharmacy services, medication delivery information, secure communications among clinical teams, and more on handheld devices.
