IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PrescribeWellness, the cloud-based software services company whose mission is to inspire collaboration for better health through technology, and AmerisourceBergen, one of the largest global pharmaceutical sourcing and distribution services companies, today announced that PrescribeWellness’ PrescribeCare offering will be included as a no-cost feature for Elevate Provider Network customers.
PrescribeCare empowers community pharmacies to create and share care plans electronically, support care coordination, and take advantage of new and emerging payment models.
“PrescribeCare further advances community pharmacies’ ability to identify and manage patient care encounters daily, collaborate more easily with physicians and health systems, and uncover non-dispensing revenue opportunities,” said Al Babbington, CEO of PrescribeWellness. “We’re excited to be empowering pharmacies in the Elevate Provider Network to go ‘beyond the fill’ with more enhanced service offerings.”
PrescribeCare is built using the Pharmacist eCarePlan, a nationally recognized standard. This allows pharmacies to more quickly exchange information with other members of the care team. Through PrescribeCare, the pharmacist can prioritize patient concerns or goals, incorporate those in the patient record, and share medication-related information. The plan can be printed for the patient to share with their primary care physicians and caregivers.
Community pharmacists can also use PrescribeCare to identify what interventions or services a patient needs and drive patient solutions like medication synchronization and reconciliation, adherence monitoring and coaching, compliance packaging, immunizations, Medicare plan reviews, prescription delivery, communication to the electronic health record to other healthcare providers, and billing for enhanced services.
“Our pharmacy profession is rapidly expanding the breadth of services we deliver to our patients by providing enhanced clinical interventions, with demonstrable positive outcomes and ROI,” said Peter J. Kounelis, R.Ph., and Vice President of Elevate Provider Network, AmerisourceBergen. “PrescribeCare is a critical component in supporting this broader service model, by facilitating the capture and sharing of the necessary components, such as patient encounter recording, patient education and information sharing with other healthcare team members.”
Notable features of PrescribeCare include:
- Turnkey, cloud-based and easy to use
- Billing support capabilities
- Connects to EHR
PrescribeCare is practice management system-agnostic and interfaces with over 50 pharmacy management systems to analyze dispensing data in real time, giving the pharmacy team insight into the needs of their patients and streamlining the medication reconciliation process.
