IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PrescribeWellness, the cloud-based services company whose mission is to inspire collaboration for better health, today announced that it has partnered with Pharmacy Providers of Oklahoma (PPOk) and PBA Health to provide their member pharmacies with access to PrescribeMedicare, PrescribeCare and the Patient Engagement Center. PPOk members can use these robust tools to engage their patients in a more effective way to help their Medicare-eligible patients find the best plan for their prescriptions and financial needs and drive improved health outcomes.
“We are proud to assist PPOk and PBA Health in providing tools to their members that will allow them to go ‘beyond the fill’ by serving their patients more effectively,” said Kelly Keegan, Chief Growth Officer of PrescribeWellness. “Networks like PPOk and PBA Health that are focused on quality and outcomes are the future of pharmacy. Our team is dedicated to improving patient health across America, and our partnership with PPOk and PBA Health will allow us to continue that great work.”
Improving Patient Outcomes
PrescribeCare is an electronic pharmacy “care plan” that pharmacists can use to document their patient encounters, communicate with other care providers, reduce redundant data entry, and improve care coordination to support enhanced services. PrescribeWellness technology helps community pharmacists identify what interventions or services a patient needs and drives patient services, including medication reconciliation, adherence monitoring and medication synchronization, immunizations, patient engagement, communication of the electronic health record to other healthcare providers, and billing for enhanced services.
Notable benefits include the ability to:
- Identify medication therapy issues
- Document medication problem interventions
- Document medication therapy management services
- Print patient care plans, including goals and outcomes
- Exchange clinical information with physicians and other members of the healthcare team
- Streamline medical claims billing capabilities
PrescribeWellness 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 supporting daily patient management.
Helping Seniors Navigate Medicare
PPOk and PBA Health member pharmacies will have access to PrescribeMedicare from now until December 2018. PrescribeMedicare identifies patients who would benefit from a Medicare plan consultation, evaluates Medicare plans for eligible seniors, and provides patients with a cost comparison of their medications on different Medicare plans so that they can better understand their options.
Added Keegan, “Helping seniors navigate their Medicare options is a huge value for patients and a service that PPOk and PBA Health independent pharmacies can now provide.”
PPOk and PBA Health will collaborate to train member pharmacies on using PrescribeMedicare.
