FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Federation of Pharmacy Networks Partners with PrescribeWellness
Patient engagement platform to join forces with nation’s
largest independent pharmacy co-op
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. – May 14, 2013 – PrescribeWellness today announced a partnership with Federation of Pharmacy Networks (FPN), the largest co-op of independent pharmacies in the U.S., to help increase patient compliance through education and personalized outreach.
“This partnership provides independent pharmacies with the software and services they need to compete with the chain and big box retailers,” said Al Babbington, PrescribeWellness CEO. “The American healthcare system is shifting focus from sickness to prevention, and it’s critical for independent pharmacies to build patient relationships, focusing on adherence and chronic disease management, with the right technology tools.”
PrescribeWellness’ software and services are designed to make it easier for retail pharmacies to help their patients improve medication adherence and more effectively manage their chronic disease. It is estimated that lack of medication adherence costs the American healthcare system nearly $300 billion annually, or 10 percent of total healthcare costs.
LinkWellness, PrescribeWellness’ pharmacy solution, addresses all obstacles to adherence with its trusted “Voice of Authority,” which delivers the right message at the right time, in the right language, through the right channel and in the actual voice of the independent neighborhood pharmacist.
Participating FPN member pharmacies can now sign up for PrescribeWellness’ services, which include a free listing on AMillionMore.com, the company’s wellness campaign portal that encourages consumers to take preventive healthcare steps with their local pharmacies.
“PrescribeWellness provides independent pharmacies a turnkey patient outreach solution that ultimately helps independents to strengthen customer loyalty, and improve patient adherence through awareness and education,” said Carol Carlson, FPN CEO.
PrescribeWellness was founded in 2010 with a mission of reducing healthcare costs and improving health in America. The company delivers cloud-based provider to patient communications and facilitates collaboration of health care providers, family and other stakeholders to improve care and outcomes. Their services include population health, medication adherence, chronic disease management, and transitional care.
