NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--iMedicare, the leading decision automation platform for pharmacies, and Creative Pharmacist, developer of the STRAND® Intervention Platform and the market leader in supporting clinical services offered by community pharmacies, announced a strategic partnership to integrate clinical opportunities for pharmacies in enhanced services networks at the point of care.
Through the partnership, both companies will leverage their respective technologies to create a seamless approach for care coordination, identify interventions that improve patient outcomes, and bring new payment models through payer relationships. Pharmacies utilizing both services will also realize savings through the partnership.
“As enhanced services networks continue to expand, pharmacies will need powerful tools to engage patients within their workflow,” said David Pope, Chief of Innovation and Co-Founder of Creative Pharmacist. “Through the iMedicare partnership, pharmacists will have access to an end-to-end solution that simplifies the number of dashboards they’re using on a daily basis. We’re thrilled to work alongside the team at iMedicare to improve patient outcomes and provide powerful reimbursement opportunities for clinical encounters.”
Along with iMedicare, STRAND offers single sign-on integration with a majority of pharmacy management systems, allowing pharmacists to engage patients within their workflow. This allows pharmacists to identify potential opportunities –including HEDIS measure and Star Ratings measures– and bill payers for completed encounters. Pharmacists utilizing both services will receive the new integration at no cost to current members.
“Creative Pharmacist’s STRAND platform has proven great outcomes with multiple insurers that reimburse pharmacies for clinical services,” said Flaviu Simihaian, CEO of iMedicare. “We are excited to bring these opportunities in the workflow of our 5,200+ pharmacy customers.”
“Creative Pharmacist has been a faithful supporter of CPESNSM Networks since the beginning,” said Jay Williams, Director of Marketing Communications for CPESNSM USA. “And, they continue to build new technologies and find new partnerships, like this one with iMedicare, to support pharmacies and networks providing enhanced patient care services.”

Over 5,200 pharmacies use iMedicare to deliver an unrivaled service to their patients and increase their bottom line. For more information, visit www.imedicare.com.
