Older patients often deal with a variety of chronic diseases—it’s an unfortunate and unavoidable part of the aging process. As a result, senior-aged patients commonly face complex medication regimens which can cause frequent complications and even dangers such as adverse drug events (ADEs).
In fact – thanks to the Baby Boomer generation entering their Medicare years – elderly patients’ prescriptions now account for over 33% of all prescription medications.1 This situation calls for increased attention from not only prescribers, but from those who support in the administration of these complex medication regimens—their community pharmacists.
Fortunately, Comprehensive Medication Reviews (CMRs), which fall under the umbrella of medication therapy management (MTM) services, can substantially impact medication safety by identifying medication-related problems, and then optimizing the patient regimen. Even more fortunate—CMRs can be conducted and billed for by a pharmacist.
PrescribeWellness, a Tabula Rasa HealthCare (TRHC) solution is here to help your pharmacy capitalize on CMR opportunities, which serve as a great avenue to fortify patient relationships, improve medication safety, and grow pharmacy revenue.
PrescribeWellness—Your Partner in CMRs
With its innovative technology, the PrescribeWellness solution simplifies the CMR patient identification and recruitment processes, streamlining pharmacy workflow.
With direct compatibility and integration with pharmacy management systems (PMS) along with actionable CMR filters, the PrescribeWellness solution allows pharmacists to quickly and easily identify those patients in your population who are primed and eligible for CMRs—conveniently displayed right in the PrescribeWellness Patient Engagement Center. In fact, when a patient is deemed eligible for a CMR, your pharmacy staff will be alerted to take immediate action.
In an effort to help facilitate actionable interventions, the PrescribeWellness patient communication tool gives pharmacists the ability to send a prerecorded OnDemand message—recorded in the voice of the pharmacist—or a customized text message. This level of customization not only allows your staff to engage patients in the manner and mode they prefer, but it also promotes patient communication to occur at the optimum time to complete CMRs.
End-to-end CMR Support
Pharmacies can now choose to have TRHC complete CMRs on your pharmacy’s behalf. Removing the administrative burden from your staff, your pharmacy can now have the best opportunity to both engage patients, and strengthen pharmacy revenue through the completion of CMRs. Our nationwide clinical contact centers are at the ready to support you from end-to-end.
