IRVINE, Calif. — AmerisourceBergen Corp. and its Good Neighbor Pharmacy network will employ technology from PrescribeWellness to deliver and maintain the company’s new Patient Engagement Center.
The Patient Engagement Center is a key component of the new Elevate Provider Network that AmerisourceBergen announced late last month at its ThoughSpot 2015 event in Las Vegas. The premier-level offering, formerly known as the Pharmacy Services Administrative Organization, is designed to help independent pharmacies enhance patient care and improve profitability via better business practices and leverage centralized and patient adherence data to optimize reimbursement with payers.
“We are excited about our new relationship with PrescribeWellness and pleased to include their solutions in our premier-level offering to AmerisourceBergen Elevate Provider Network members,” said Chuck Reed, group vice president of pharmacy technology and solutions for AmerisourceBergen. “We believe this innovative tool can play an important role in supporting pharmacists as they strive to improve patient engagement, adherence and Star Ratings.”
PrescribeWellness’ solutions aim to elevate the community pharmacist’s role in providing coordinated care and preventative health services. The company said its software makes it easier for pharmacies to increase patient medication adherence, build a customer loyalty and provide extended services via an appointment-based model.
PrescribeWellness added that its solutions have been proven to improve a patient’s adherence to their medication and the pharmacy’s ratings in various performance measures.
“The Patient Engagement Center becomes the single platform that the AmerisourceBergen Elevate Provider Network leadership team can use to continuously inform their members and launch their most important strategic initiatives,” stated Tony Thuyen, chief strategy officer and co-founder of Irvine, Calif.-based PrescribeWellness.
