PharmacyUnited- Working Together to Combat the Opioid Crisis and Save Lives

Follow by Email

Each day, more than 115 people in the U.S. die from opioid overdose — that’s over 42,000 deaths each year! Opioid addiction does not discriminate, affecting Americans from all states and every demographic. What started as a problem has unfortunately devolved into a nationwide epidemic, and with community pharmacists stationed on the front lines, their role as a solution to this public health crisis has become increasingly clear and critical. PrescribeWellness has decided to take action to fight the growing crisis by calling on 1,000 pharmacies across the country to ban together and take a stand against what is now called the “worst addiction epidemic in American history.

Participating pharmacies will be able to use the PrescribeWellness PrescribeCare platform to identify, monitor and trend opioid users by calculating their patients’ risk assessment scores. With this tool, pharmacists will be empowered with the information they need to perform care interventions for those patients prescribed opioids to improve their medication therapy regimen, and in turn, improve the health of the country’s most at-risk population. Of course, pharmacies will also get paid for conducting these meaningful encounters, but let’s be clear – reversing the devastating effects of opioid addiction is the foremost concern.   

PrescribeWellness is providing:

  • PrescribeCare to identify at-risk opioid patients and get paid for initial encounters. Up to $50 reimbursement per patient. Subsequent encounter reimbursement is based on the patient’s risk score and subject to payer approval.
  • Webinar series designed to educate your staff on the opioid epidemic and how it relates to your patient population, plus step-by-step training on how to utilize the PrescribeCare tool.   
  • Training materials on PW University including; best practices on how to engage with an at-risk opioid patient, patient resources, and outside referrals.
  • Marketing kit to promote the campaign and share your involvement with your network.
