PrescribeWellness Announces Partnership with McKesson AccessHealth® to Improve Pharmacy Efficiency, Customer Engagement, and Patient Adherence

IRVINE, Calif.--()--PrescribeWellness, the inventive SaaS company whose mission is to inspire collaboration for better health, today announced a strategic partnership with McKesson Corporation.

“PrescribeWellness is thrilled to partner with McKesson AccessHealth to improve both efficiency of their members and the medication adherence of their pharmacy patients,” announced Al Babbington, President and Co-Founder of PrescribeWellness. "Through our selective, strategic partnerships with the leading associations in the retail pharmacy industry, we’ve quickly established ourselves as the #1 resource in helping members improve customer engagement and patient adherence. Our partnership with McKesson Corporation reinforces that point. We are looking forward to working with their pharmacies.”

PrescribeWellness offers innovative technological solutions designed to elevate the community pharmacist’s role in providing preventative healthcare services. Their software makes it easier for members to build customer loyalty and provide extended services such as appointment-based medication delivery. PrescribeWellness solutions help improve a patient’s medication adherence and the pharmacy’s Star Ratings.

The pharmacy industry is rapidly shifting with an increase of narrow networks and a growing importance on clinical performance as a consideration for network access. AccessHealth continues to evolve in this shifting market by providing its members with the tools needed to help improve their clinical performance and ultimately better position their members for network inclusion in the future.

With this partnership, AccessHealth members will have access to PrescribeWellness’ medication synchronization software tool, StarWellness. “We are very excited about our partnership with PrescribeWellness,” stated AccessHealth VP/GM, Kevin Connor. “The capabilities that the PrescribeWellness tool brings to independent pharmacy, particularly the StarWellness solution, are key to positioning our members and our network to be seen as top clinical performers."

"Pharmacy reimbursement models are continuously evolving. Community pharmacy’s ability to provide solutions that help their patients improve their health and improve their scores across an increasing number of performance measures is a key to their survival.” added Tony Thuyen, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-Founder of PrescribeWellness. “Unifying thousands of AccessHealth member pharmacies under one platform provides a significant voice to a variety of stakeholders and provides AccessHealth with a powerful message as they work with their PBM partners on future network inclusion, evolving reimbursement models, and new revenue opportunities."

You can find out more about this partnership during the McKesson ideaShare Conference on June 24–28, 2015, at the San Diego Convention Center. AccessHealth and PrescribeWellness representatives will be available at the AccessHealth booth on the show floor to provide information around this important addition to AccessHealth’s suite of services. The McKesson ideaShare Conference and exhibition provides an interactive forum for independent pharmacies across the U.S. to gain practical ideas for driving profits, patient satisfaction, and awareness of the quality care and outcomes they deliver.
