PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Enclara Pharmacia (Enclara), the market leader in comprehensive pharmacy management services to the hospice industry, announces its integration with Hospicelink. This integration, which marks Enclara’s next phase of deploying a full mobile clinical management solution, facilitates the ordering and management of pharmacy, Durable Medical Equipment (DME) and medical supplies by hospice nurses. Enclara’s partnership with Hospicelink, a leading hospice DME Benefit Management (DBM) company, provides E3 Mobile users access to best-in-class pharmacy and DME management, and marks the first integrated solution of its kind in the hospice industry.
As the single point of entry, Enclara’s E3 Mobile makes ordering and management of pharmacy and DME simpler and faster for hospice nurses and clinical staff. Enclara will showcase this new feature and the entire suite of E3 Mobile capabilities at NHPCO's Interdisciplinary Conference, Sept. 18-20, 2017, San Diego Marriott Marquis and Marina, San Diego, California.
“The integration of Hospicelink’s DBM Solution® within E3 Mobile is a significant leap forward in workflow optimization for hospice nurses and staff,” says Andy Horowitz, CEO, Enclara. “Our E3 Mobile solution is a centralized patient management hub, providing hospice staff with streamlined ordering, fulfillment, and management for patient medications and access to Hospicelink’s DME management platform and nationwide network of DME suppliers.”
He continues, “Once our medical supply integration is completed later this year, we will have a comprehensive clinical offering, including the ability to report on all three clinical service lines (pharmacy, DME and medical supplies) from within our real-time dashboards. This is a critical step in unifying the view of clinical expenses and patient utilization. We’re answering the most important questions for a hospice – what are our clinical practice variances, and what are our cost variances? We provide visibility into quality and cost, down to a patient level.”
E3 Mobile’s simple, intuitive design can help save nurse time by eliminating redundant entry, and with EMR integration, helps to ensure consistent patient records across systems. The streamlined ordering progress permits the transmission of orders from E3 Mobile to Hospicelink’s network of DME suppliers for quick delivery and pickup. Immediate access to demographic, medication and DME equipment history, order and delivery status coupled with Hospicelink’s proprietary DBM Solution® enables nurses to seamlessly manage their patient needs.
Chad Trull, president and CEO, Hospicelink, adds, “We are excited to partner with Enclara in pioneering a single mobile solution for managing patient clinical needs. Enclara, as the recognized pharmacy leader in the hospice pharmacy market, presents a unique opportunity to deliver a seamless mobile ordering and reporting solution that better serves our mutual clients. Hospicelink has always been at the forefront of innovation in DME benefit management, and this collaboration is just another example of our leadership in the hospice DME market.”
