PrescribeWellness and the Federation of Pharmacy Networks Announce Expanded Partnership
Offer Medicare plan comparison software tools to pharmacies across the country
Irvine, CA – August 2, 2016 – PrescribeWellness, the cloud-based services company whose mission is to inspire collaboration for better health and the Federation of Pharmacy Networks (FPN) have announced the expansion of their 3-year old partnership.
The two companies have formally extended their partnership multiple times since it began in 2013. Today, they’ve agreed to offer PrescribeWellness’ Medicare plan comparison software, PrescribeMedicare, to FPN’s network of pharmacy groups and their member pharmacies.
“We’ve had a tremendous partnership with the Federation of Pharmacy Networks and many of their member groups,” said Jay Williams, Vice President of Marketing and Industry Relations at PrescribeWellness. “We are excited about the launch of PrescribeMedicare and believe it’s a powerful tool that can help pharmacies offer a new service to their Medicare patients and better manage this important group of patients.”
PrescribeMedicare is Medicare plan evaluation software that gives the pharmacist the ability to automatically upload the patient’s current prescriptions from their pharmacy system and provide a forecast of the monthly and yearly costs for the patient. The patient can avoid the manual entry of their medications in the Medicare website. The pharmacist can build on their standing as one of the communities most accessible and trusted healthcare providers by helping their Medicare patients understand their options.
“It’s vital that our community pharmacies offer Medicare plan evaluations for their seniors,” offered Carol Carlson, CEO of the Federation of Pharmacy Networks. “We believe that our pharmacies have the ability to build loyalty and trust by engaging their patients and helping them to navigate through the Medicare Part D annual selection process. We were looking for a partner that could help us affordably and effectively provide a Medicare plan comparison tool to our member groups and their pharmacies. We found that with PrescribeWellness.”
PrescribeWellness offers innovative technological solutions designed to elevate the community pharmacist’s role in providing coordinated care and preventative healthcare services to their customers. The software makes it easier for pharmacies to improve customer loyalty, generate additional pharmacy revenue and provide extended services via the Appointment-based Model. PrescribeWellness solutions have been proven to strengthen a patient’s adherence to their medication and the pharmacy’s ratings in various performance measures.
