OLATHE, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NIC Inc. (Nasdaq: EGOV), the nation’s largest provider of digital
government solutions, will feature its RxGov prescription drug
monitoring platform at the Global Conference & Exhibition of the
Healthcare Information & Management Systems Society (HIMSS)
Interoperability Showcase, as well as from the Microsoft exhibit space

“The magnitude of the prescription opioid epidemic surpasses many of the
crises in our nation’s history,” said Harry Herington, NIC Inc. Chief
Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. “RxGov is the leading
technology platform that can assist in battling this epidemic. It is the
most transparent and effective solution for government, healthcare
providers, law enforcement, and public health officials. HIMSS provides
the perfect opportunity to showcase how RxGov will deliver better
treatment outcomes and save lives.”

RxGov will be the only prescription drug monitoring platform
demonstration during the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase, and will be
available for the duration of the conference. The RxGov platform will
also be on display within the Microsoft exhibit at the HIMSS conference
with a live demonstration from the Microsoft exhibit at 2 p.m. EST,
Wed., Feb. 13. RxGov uses Platform as a Service functionality of the
trusted Microsoft Azure public cloud, such as its cloud-based machine
learning and artificial intelligence capabilities.

NIC and Microsoft are working together to use technology to empower
people around the world by transforming government interactions. RxGov
demonstrates just one of the ways the two companies are working together
to increase the impacts actionable data shared across government
jurisdictions, state lines, and multiple stakeholders such as law
enforcement and public health officials can deliver.

“RxGov is an example of how technology empowers people to make a
difference,” said Kim Nelson, Executive Director of State and Local
Government Solutions at Microsoft. “The use of data powered by Microsoft
Azure and Power BI has the potential to help healthcare address this
challenging public health issue and improve patient outcomes.”

Every day in the United States, nearly 50 people die from an overdose
involving prescription opioids. To address this public health crisis,
prescription drug monitoring programs are used in nearly every state in
the United States to track the prescribing, dispensing, and use of
opioids such as hydrocodone and oxycodone. The RxGov PDMP platform
includes a variety of industry-leading benefits and features, including
complete end-to-end data transparency for healthcare officials,
pharmacies, government, and law enforcement, a unique patient matching
algorithm, and seamless integration with Electronic Health Records (EHR).

RxGov was recently selected as the secure technology platform to collect
information about controlled substances dispensed in the state of
Maryland. The Company has been providing PDMP systems and related
technology since 2011 in Montana and more recently, Wisconsin. NIC also
operates PDMP components in Utah.
