The virtual assistant app, named LILY, by the national leader in hospice pharmacy innovation comes just in time for a gathering of clinicians and hospice leaders at fall events like the NPHI Annual Summit in Chicago, IL, and NHPCO IDC in New Orleans, LA.

PITTSBURGH, Pa., Oct. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Virtual assistants, like Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa, have quickly

become a part of the daily lives of many healthcare professionals throughout the country, but "What about similar technology for clinicians in the hospice community," says Drew Mihalyo, PharmD, President and COO at Delta Care Rx.

As of early November 2018, his company will make that possible for hospice clinicians looking to continue to leverage technology in creating dynamic and effective palliative and/or end of life care solutions.

Through a partnership with SMARTMD, a technology company and palliative care software as a service provider, the LILY app will be just another example of how the company serves as so much more than a pharmacy partner to its' rapidly growing book of business that now serves clients in over 42 states.

Mihalyo went on to say, "LILY will utilize all of the information, tools, and services found within the existing Delta e-Tools suite of software that already integrates with almost every major hospice electronic medical record, while adding a totally new and convenient means by which patient visit preparation, charting, common workflow, and even use of our industry first e-Prescribing or Telehealth tools can occur. It's just about as exciting as when we first introduced hospice tailored e-Prescribing technology to colleagues nationwide over 10 years ago."

Thanks to SMARTMD, the app even enables providers to document their visits without ever touching a keyboard, while they are in a facility or in their car.
