RxConnect interfaces with EHR products and provides features such as admissions discharges and transfers; order verification; administration messages from an eMAR; notification of pharmacy fill data to the eMAR system; and automated dispensing system support through HL7 2.3.1.

In addition, RxConnect provides transparency between pharmacy and enterprise systems. For example, it is fully integrated with the Avatar Order Entry and Avatar eMAR modules, providing a complete closed-loop medication management platform. In this scenario, an Avatar customer creates a medication order for a patient via Avatar Order Entry. The order is sent to the pharmacy and processed using RxConnect. When the staff administers the medication to a patient, Avatar eMAR passes the information back to the pharmacist. This integrated approach helps Netsmart customers meet the Meaningful Use criteria for funding eligibility under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), which includes medication management and electronic prescribing requirements.
