IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PrescribeWellness, a leading cloud-based patient relationship management solutions company that inspires collaboration between pharmacies, payers, providers, pharmaceutical companies and their patients for better health, today announced the acquisition of all pharmacy-related assets of VoicePort, LLC, a leading provider of intelligent, interactive voice response patient engagement solutions to regional pharmacy chains and independent pharmacies.
“This acquisition provides pharmacies with an end-to-end solution for patient encounters, clinical interventions, and workflow efficiencies. As reimbursement models become more focused on value-based care and as consumers take greater control over healthcare decisions, these tools will empower pharmacies to be a core healthcare destination within their local community,” said Al Babbington, CEO of PrescribeWellness.
Through the acquisition of the VoicePort assets, PrescribeWellness will extend and elevate its offering of combined solutions that connect patients via voice, text, email and mobile to their pharmacists, doctors and other healthcare providers. Leveraging the PrescribeWellness suite to capture inbound patient requests on VoicePort technology will enhance the seamless identification of clinical opportunities and documentation of encounters, as well as the submission to health system EMRs and billing systems. PrescribeWellness has extended its complete patient relationship management solution for retail, health system, 340B and specialty pharmacies.
With the growing physician shortage, the complications associated with data interoperability and the movement towards value-based care, pharmacists will play an increasingly important role in the continuum of care, with empowered consumers demanding seamless integration of their preventive healthcare needs.
