Proxsys Rx announces the opening of The Pharmacy at DeSoto, an independently owned and operated outpatient retail pharmacy at Baptist Memorial Hospital- DeSoto. The Pharmacy at DeSoto will partner with the hospital to enhance the quality of transitional patient care by providing a broad range of benefits including bedside pharmacy counseling and follow-up pharmacy services to help patients comply with their medication regimens and avoid hospital readmission.  

"We are excited to partner with the hospital to provide Baptist DeSoto patients with a new level of service," said Proxsys Rx Chairman and CEO George B. Salem. "By integrating outpatient pharmacy into the continuum of care, we are able to help Baptist DeSoto provide patients with exceptional care while realizing long-term cost savings that go along with reducing readmission rates and improving other key health system strategic indicators," said Salem. In addition to the retail pharmacy services, Proxsys Rx is providing Baptist DeSoto with a broad scope of services for pharmacy levered population management and pharmacy driven performance programs.

"Having the right partner gives patients better care," James Huffman, administrator and CEO of Baptist DeSoto, explained. Huffman pointed out that a key goal of the Proxsys Rx partnership is to reduce hospital readmissions by allowing patients to leave the hospital with 30-90 day supplies of prescriptions in hand, along with options for continued refills to treat chronic disease. Benefits to the patient include a pharmacist bedside consult delivered via digital app to explain medications, easier access to medications and discounted pricing.
