Health Care Conference Will Host Nearly 14,000 in Kansas City, Oct. 8-11
SEATTLE, WA – October 4, 2018– YouScript will attend and exhibit at the Cerner Health Conference (CHC) 2018, an annual conference on the latest innovations in health care and IT. Cerner, a global leader in health care technology, will host this year’s event Oct. 8-11 throughout downtown Kansas City, Missouri.
“We are excited for YouScript to join other leaders in healthcare IT to improve patient safety and outcomes and help drive down the cost of care by bringing precision medicine to the point of care.” said YouScript CEO Kristine Ashcraft. “Cerner is a fantastic collaborator and we look forward to strengthening our relationship through the opportunities they have provided at the conference.”
YouScript will join nearly 14,000 health care industry leaders, practitioners and Cerner associates from around the world who gather at CHC each year to stay ahead of the curve and up to date on new and existing technology. Located at booth #740 and throughout the Solutions Gallery, YouScript will showcase its Smart on FHIR integration into Cerner’s Powerchart. This year’s theme, “Smarter Care,” highlights contextual, intelligent experiences and continuous advancement as a smarter organizational strategy with a focus on proactive engagement and wellness.
With more than 200 educational sessions and 700 expert and industry-leading speakers, CHC provides organizations insight on ways to engage consumers in their care and gain improved health outcomes. YouScript will be providing demos and walking visitors through the workflow of optimizing medications right within the clinical workflow on the 90,000-square-foot Solutions Gallery floor. Featuring exhibits from more than 140 supplier organizations, the Solutions Gallery provides experiential learning with cutting-edge technology and connections with Cerner associates.
The YouScript software and analytics is the only solution to answer two of the key questions in precision medicine – who do I test and how do I act on it – right in the clinical workflow. Using patient-specific genomics, medication information, related warnings, recommended alternatives are proactively presented and ‘pre- auditioned’ prior to prescribing, in an easy-to-understand and clinically actionable format that reduces alert fatigue.
Recent studies1 show that using YouScript Precision Prescribing Software reduces re-hospitalizations and emergency department visits by 52% and 42% respectively, by employing over 17,000-curated references and product inserts to simulate a team of clinical pharmacists delivering real-time, evidence-based guidance. YouScript represents a new standard for personalized medication management and care insight.
By providing clear, actionable guidance and pharmacist recommendations, YouScript helps clinicians address the complexities of drug interactions and reduce trial-and-error prescribing. Smart on FHIR-enabled YouScript in Cerner’s PowerChart supports prescribing decisions, improved patient outcomes, increased drug adherence, as well as helps save time and lower health care costs.

The YouScript clinical decision support tool is the only medication management system available that assesses the cumulative effect of a patient drug regimen and unique pharmacogenomic results. Based on over 14,000 curated references and product inserts, YouScript uses comprehensive predictive analytics to interpret and provide an at-a-glance summary of the complex web of genetics, medications, over-the-counters, herbals, and other factors impacting drug safety and response; identifying at risk patients for testing and offering ranked alternatives with reduced interaction risk whenever an adverse interaction risk is found.
