The partnership will further enable independent pharmacy owners across the United States to provide clinically focused services, enhance the patient experience, improve pharmacy workflow, offer comprehensive patient engagement and support services, and drive better patient outcomes.
“Thrifty White has long been focused on driving quality outcomes and creating a better pharmacy experience,” said Al Babbington, chief executive officer of PrescribeWellness. “This partnership will advance and support that vision, enabling even more independently owned pharmacies across the United States to go ‘beyond the fill’ by providing high-touch healthcare in their communities and remaining trusted members of the healthcare continuum.”
The PrescribeCare platform simplifies the intervention process and supports chronic care management by providing the pharmacist with a single view of each patient, their medications and opportunities to further engage. With a seamless patient management platform and supporting tools, Thrifty White can execute medication synchronization, immunizations, health screenings, diseases state management, diabetes prevention, adherence management, medication therapy management, opioid management, and several other custom programs.
“Our partnership with PrescribeWellness will allow us to work together and support independent pharmacies across the country in a way that has never been done before,” said Bob Narveson, president and CEO of Thrifty White. “This partnership will give Thrifty White affiliates access to many of the central processes that Thrifty White provides to its company-owned stores. As outcomes become more important, those best able to engage with the patient will win. Independent pharmacies are often the cornerstone of their communities, and this new relationship will further expand on their ability to connect with their patients and to promote healthy outcomes.”
