FlavoRx, RxNT integrate medicine flavoring with e-prescribing, electronic health record applications

Prescribers can indicate preferred flavors for medications on prescriptions

COLUMBIA, Md. — RxNT's e-prescribing and electronic health record systems will incorporate taste options recommended by FlavoRx for liquid medications given to children in order to promote medication adherence, the two companies said.

In a recently announced deal, the companies said they would make enhancing the taste of medicine a seamless option for pediatric prescriptions and their patients. Prescribers can use RxNT's software to designate a child's preferred medication flavor directly on the electronic prescription, sending it to the pharmacy and facilitating the custom-flavoring process. Studies have indicated that bad-tasting medications can be a barrier to adherence among children.

"Pediatricians, nurse practitioners and physician's assistants know first-hand the importance of taste when it comes to pediatric adherence," FlavoRx CEO Stuart Amos said. "The FlavoRx partnership with RxNT will go a long way toward improving adherence and outcomes for patients whose doctors, nurse practitioners or physician's assistants use the RxNT eRx or RxNT EHR systems."
