Amber, Kubat join NeHII

OMAHA, Neb. — Specialty pharmacy provider Amber Pharmacy and pharmacy retailer Kubat Pharmacy have joined the first network to electronically exchange clinical patient information and medication therapy with healthcare providers in and around Nebraska, the Nebraska Health Information Initiative said Wednesday.

NeHII — a nonprofit health information exchange designed to allow the sharing of clinical and administrative data between providers in Nebraska and surrounding states — said that as part of the exchange, the pharmacies would have secure access to customers’ most current and accurate medication history and information, allowing them to set new standards for safety and care.

“We are delighted to be the first pharmacy in the state of Nebraska to join the NeHII network,” Amber Pharmacy president Mike Agostino said. “Amber Pharmacy has been in the forefront of providing prescription services to the transplant community for almost 15 years.”
