Allergy Software FAQ

Xtract Software – FAQ

The combination of XTRACT Immunotherapy Software and outsourcing through Edge Pharma provides hospitals and clinics a fully compliant system. For organizations that decide not to invest in the capital improvements required to meet the new USP 797 regulations, outsourcing to Edge Pharma is easy and avoids any requirement for facilities upgrades, compounding training, SOPs, cleaning, temperature and humidity logs, annual exams, and media fill testing. If hospitals or clinics, however, decide to continue mixing treatment sets in-house, XTRACT Immunotherapy Software’s Comply module provides tools (including remainders, logs, and documentation) to make sure your facility is fully in compliance.

It is a straight-forward process to get your office set up to order compounded prescription named patient treatment sets from Edge Pharma’s compounding facility in Vermont. Between our industry-leading Xtract Immunotherapy Software and our customized orders forms, there are multiple options. Call to speak with one of our allergy specialists, or you may email or register for an account and arrange a video call. Our allergy team has decades of experience working with small practices, large multi-location practices, and health systems with central contracting and IT support. No matter the size of your organization, you will get prompt, knowledgeable customer service, quick turnaround on quotations, and turn-key setup.

Yes. After a billable transaction in XTRACT, for example a skin test was performed, a prescription mixed, or immunotherapy injection administered, a billing message can be sent to the EHR or PM for instant charge capture.

Xtract Solutions is much more than just a software company. Our system is a complete solution to compliant immunotherapy. Unlike other software systems our allergy immunotherapy software includes all the modules you may need (Test, Prescribe, Mix, Outsource, Inject, and Comply). In particular, our allergy software system focuses on USP 797 compliance. In addition, XTRACT offers easy outsourcing of immunotherapy treatment vials, both patient specific and non-patient specific custom mixes. As providers and health system pharmacy personnel begin to evaluate costs and options related to USP 797 compliance, it will be more important than ever to have a complete solution.

With an FDA registered 503B Outsourcing facility, Edge Pharma is uniquely positioned to offer the highest quality compounded treatment vials in the US. Outsourcing through Edge Pharma is simple, cost effective, improves clinic efficiency, and eliminates USP 797 compliance issues.

Our systems were designed to be scalable. Our customers range in size from dozens of allergists spanning multiple states to single provider practices in rural areas. We also understand that larger hospital systems often have heightened levels of regulation to ensure document security and responsible use of systems. XTRACT Immunotherapy Software includes configurable user privilege levels that allow you to contain users to only those parts of the software they are allowed access to. Within larger hospital systems, EMR/EHR integration is also important. With the mandate to have the patient’s complete record in the EMR, clinicians are often forced to double document the data on paper and then again in the EMR. With XTRACT’s interfaced solutions these challenges go away.

We have a dedicated support team that help make the transition to allergy immunotherapy software as seamless as possible. And just like with smaller organizations, for health systems with potentially dozens of allergists spread across multiple locations, investing the time and money required to meet the new USP 797 regulations for allergenic extract compounding may be daunting. XTRACT software makes outsourcing quick and easy, eliminating these issues.

Small practices often mean fewer employees trying to accomplish the same amount of work as a larger organization. Allergy immunotherapy software can help alleviate many of the burdens associated with this. Time consuming tasks such as labeling, extract lot traceability, compliance, and immunotherapy documentation are handled by XTRACT software, freeing up valuable staff time. The decision assistance features built into XTRACT make it easy for staff to be cross trained, allowing you to keep your employee pool nimble.

XTRACT allergy software also provides the peace of mind that staff will execute patient care within the guidelines of the provider-defined protocols, and with the safety assurances of barcode and fingerprint verification. With respect to outsourcing, for allergy clinics not interested in investing the time and capital required to meet the new USP 797 regulations for allergenic extract compounding, XTRACT software has an Outsource module that makes purchasing patient specific treatment vials as simple as clicking a button.

We find most allergists and organizations have specific processes. Our platform is designed with this flexibility in mind. The XTRACT onboarding leverages decades of allergy clinical experience and over 10 years of software development to provide a turn-key installation process. And each implementation can be easily customized to meet your needs.

Yes. XTRACT Immunotherapy Software has a flexible integration engine to ensure that whatever EHR you use, we will be able to push data in the preferred format. Typical integrations include patient demographics from your EMR / PM system, XTRACT document results sent to the EHR (e.g. skin test, prescription, and injection reports), and charge capture messages sent for billing in the EMR / PM.

Yes! Summit is designed intentionally to operate as a standalone digital immunotherapy record, to work beside an EMR without requiring an interface, and also capable of operating fully interfaced. Whether a clinic is not using an EMR or prefers to to interface Summit can easily track the patients demographics. There are also built in tools to get records into external systems with minimal clicks like the ability to download reports, or our ‘chart ready note’ which allows copying visit summaries to be pasted into an external system with a single click.

Yes, we provide both remote and on-site training / go-live support. Remote training is included in the implementation cost and can be scheduled both before and after the clinical go-live date. Onsite training is also often bundled in with implementation, but can easily be added at any time.

Yes, we offer extensive technical support through our Oregon-based customer service center. This is available Monday through Friday from 6AM PST to 5PM PST.
