New Technology Offering Enables Pharmacies to ‘Go Beyond the Fill’ with Preventive Healthcare Services—and Get Paid for Them
IRVINE, Calif.—July 11, 2017—PrescribeWellness, the cloud-based software services company whose mission is to inspire collaboration for better health through its technology, today announced PrescribeCare, a new offering to support enhanced services for community pharmacies. PrescribeCare empowers community pharmacies to create and share care plans electronically, support care coordination, and take advantage of new and emerging payment models.
PrescribeCare is included as a no-cost feature for PrescribeWellness customers.
“PrescribeWellness is committed to helping community pharmacies make the paradigm shift from being pill-centric to patient-centric, and enhanced services are an integral part of that,” said Al Babbington, CEO of PrescribeWellness. “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.”
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.
“PrescribeWellness is helping transform the future of pharmacy,” said Mindy Smith, Vice President of Pharmacy Practice Innovation at PrescribeWellness. “With PrescribeCare, community pharmacists have the tools they need to optimize medication therapy and patient health outcomes by connecting with the primary care provider and healthcare team. It is amazing to be a part of the transformation which will help create new opportunities for community pharmacies.”
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.
Other notable features of PrescribeCare include:
- Turnkey, cloud-based and easy to use
- Billing support capabilities
- Connects to electronic health records
