InteliSys CTO Stanley Crane

Stanley Crane, who has served as chief technology officer and chief innovation officer at Allscripts, has been named CTO at InteliSys Health of San Diego. He will guide development of its point-of-care drug pricing and medication adherence tools.

Crane worked at Allscripts from 2008 to 2016. He most recently served as the chief innovation officer of the $2.3 billion provider of electronic health records and other health IT solutions for more than180,000 physicians and 2,500 hospitals. While serving in this role, from 2008 to 2016, he created Allscripts Open API, and grew it from a technology into its

In addition to his tenure at Allscripts, Crane has served as CTO of startups in a variety of industries, including voice recognition for the healthcare industry, frequent flier mile platforms, home grocery shopping (later acquired by Allscripts to enable home medication shopping) and healthcare materials management systems software (later acquired by McKesson).

InteliSys Health launched in June after two years in stealth mode, and is now rolling out its first solution, RxStream, a drug-pricing and medication adherence tool that it says can be embedded in the e-prescribing workflow of any EHR.

InteliSys said it aims to improve medication adherence in two ways. RxStream seeks to provide the lowest prices to both patients and insurers, stripped of the added fees and other padding that are common in pharmacy benefit management contracts. RxStream then would connect all stakeholders in the e-prescribing transaction, providing data back to the doctor and insurer about drug fills and refills, to enable intervention to prevent adverse events due to medication non-adherence.

The company said Crane would help drive its expansion beyond prescribing-focused solutions to a cloud-based platform uniting actionable data and predictive analytics to deliver the lowest prescription costs across the healthcare landscape, along with information on medication fill behavior.

"I've seen how crippling high drug prices have become for patients—and what a driver they can be for insurer premium hikes," Crane said in a prepared statement. "By giving doctors and patients the lowest, real-time prices at convenient nearby pharmacies, RxStream will help patients afford their medicines, so they can reap their full therapeutic benefit.”
