Have Plans to Optimize Medication Treatment for Millions of Americans
PrescribeWellness, the cloud-based services company whose mission is to inspire collaboration for better health, and SinfoníaRx, the innovative health care company whose mission is to provide the highest quality healthcare solutions for health plans, patients, and caregivers, today announced an agreement designed to optimize medication treatment for millions of patients nationally.
“We are truly excited about this collaboration,” said Kevin Boesen, founder and CEO of SinfoníaRx. “Pharmacists are an under-utilized health care professional and this relationship will ensure that more patients receive complete Medication Therapy Management (MTM) services.”
Through this agreement, patients at risk for medication-related problems would benefit from a community pharmacist and MTM pharmacist partnership. The outreach to the patient begins with a community pharmacist from PrescribeWellness’ extensive network and continues with a SinfoníaRx MTM pharmacist who has extensive experience focusing on helping the patient get optimal treatment while reducing the risk of adverse events and drug interactions.
Non-adherence to prescribed medications is a $290 billion issue in America. Medication Therapy Management is a proven method of addressing this challenge, yet only a fraction of Americans in need are receiving this essential service. Leveraging the community pharmacists’ relationship with the patient will open the door for a seamless delivery of services that can be triaged between the PrescribeWellness community pharmacy and the SinfoníaRx MTM call center.
“We are adding air support to our ground support to maximize our ability to provide quality care services to our patients, and significantly extend the reach to those in need,” said Mindy Smith, Vice President Pharmacy Practice Innovation with PrescribeWellness.
“Community pharmacists are among America’s most trusted professionals. Their role is essential in the rapidly changing reimbursement shift from Fee-for-Services to Fee-for-Value. PrescribeWellness is proud to support thousands of community pharmacies in 46 states with technology and services to assure they lead this change and improve the health of their communities. The ability to leverage SinfoníaRx’s support and expertise is a tremendous value add to the pharmacies we serve,” said Al Babbington, President & CEO of PrescribeWellness.

Its proprietary cloud-based platform empowers pharmacies and other healthcare professionals to provide more effective, preventive healthcare services, which improve medication adherence, chronic disease management, transitions in care, and population health.
