Enhance Your EHR with Artificial Intelligence

Make Free Text Functional Within Your EHR

Free text within medication data still plagues healthcare despite decades of progress in digitization and standardization.

Incomplete Data

Research in Social and Administrative Pharmacy found secondary medication history sources lack key information.

Data Quality

University of Michigan Medicine study shows 84% of all prescription instructions need to be edited to improve readability and quality.

Inconsistent Data

According to a study by the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs, a lack of standardization puts patients at risk.

AI Innovation Award-Winner

2021 Fast Company World Changing Ideas and MedTech Breakthrough AI Innovation Awards

SmartSuite was selected as winner of the Artificial Intelligence Innovation Award in the MedTech Breakthrough Awards and earned honorable mentions in the AI & Data and Health categories in Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas Awards!

The MedTech Breakthrough Awards program recognized SmartSuite as “an enormous leap forward” in improving medication reconciliation, leading to reduced adverse drug events and readmissions and improved efficiency and treatment decisions. SmartSuite converts free text from external systems into a user system’s unique terminology and presents the data discretely into appropriate fields to maximize functionality within the electronic health record (EHR) system and save time for clinicians.

“Data sharing is essential to a patient’s transition from one clinician to another and SmartSuite is an enormous leap forward in quality in this area to make that data usable across non-connected systems, helping clinicians to spend less time reconciling free text manually and freeing them up to focus on patient safety and throughput. We extend our sincere congratulations to DrFirst on their well-deserved ‘AI Innovation Award’ win in our 2021 MedTech Breakthrough Awards program.”

“Pharmacy technicians complete our medication histories for the ED and pharmacists check them. On a regular basis, transcription errors occur. With our DrFirst solution, the pharmacist has something to refer to when checking the medication history and can correct these transcription errors. This is the most common way that MedHx and SmartSig prevent ADEs.”

Michelle Adamczyk | Pharmacist
University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center

“To save time and improve quality of medication history data when consolidating three EHRs, we developed a data conversion process using DrFirst’s AI engine. This normalized the medication data while addressing discrepancies and variations from the old EHRs, inferring missing data with context from medication histories to prevent blank fields while avoiding manual entry.”

“With SmartSig, we saw a 14% gain in our throughput, and our sig accuracy is at 93%. I have been doing this [work] going on six years, and if you would have told me six years ago that we would have 93% accuracy from a database for home medications, I would have probably looked at you like you were a little bit nuts.”

Rebecca Sulfridge, PharmD | Clinical Pharmacist, Emergency Medicine

“SmartSig has significantly contributed to increased patient safety and improved health outcomes at KDMC. In the first seven months following implementation, our overall 30-day readmission rates decreased by 11%.”

Joe Farr, BSN, RN | Clinical Applications Coordinator
King’s Daughters Medical Center

“We enjoy the convenience and ease of compiling an accurate prior-to-admission medication list without having to make extra phone calls to confirm sigs.”
