Announced this week, the partnerships give pharmacists greater capabilities in providing preventive health care and medication management services. The PrescribeWellness software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution offers pharmacies real-time reporting, analytics and management tools to foster provider collaboration to improve patient health outcomes.
Through the partnership, Parata will provide eligible pharmacies with a one-year subscription to the PrescribeWellness Patient Engagement Center and the company’s StarWellness medication synchronizations. The pharmacy automation technology provider said the PrescribeWellness software makes it easier for pharmacies to prioritize their efforts to improve patient adherence and outcomes and suggests specific actions to improve Star Ratings, customer loyalty and profitability.
“We are thrilled to partner with PrescribeWellness and bring their leading software to our progressive customers,” stated Mark Longley, executive vice president of sales and business development at Parata. “By using PrescribeWellness with our automation, particularly Parata PASS adherence packaging, pharmacies can develop incredibly powerful retail adherence programs. PrescribeWellness provides data-driven insights that help pharmacies identify and support the patients who would most benefit from an adherence program and who will have the greatest impact on quality measures and revenue opportunity, and Parata PASS makes it easy for those patients to take their medications as prescribed and for pharmacies to scale these programs as new patients are enrolled.”
The two companies noted that the platform elevates the role of community pharmacists in patients’ health care team.
“We are honored that we’ve been selected by Parata Systems to be the software technology that will help their customers identify ideal patients to enroll in Parata’s medication management solutions,” commented Tony Thuyen, chief strategy officer and co-founder of PrescribeWellness. “While working with the leadership team at Parata, we quickly realized we have many of the same goals: providing community pharmacies with tools to improve patient adherence, drive customer loyalty, and increase their Star Ratings and top-line revenue. We look forward to collaborating with Parata to help our mutual customers achieve great success.”
Under the partnership with McKesson AccessHealth, AccessHealth members will have access to PrescribeWellness’ StarWellness med sync tool. AccessHealth is the managed care solution for more than 5,100 small and midsize pharmacies nationwide.
“We are very excited about our partnership with PrescribeWellness,” stated AccessHealth vice president and general manager Kevin Connor. “The capabilities that the PrescribeWellness tool brings to independent pharmacy, particularly the StarWellness solution, are key to positioning our members and our network to be seen as top clinical performers.”
The pharmacy industry is rapidly shifting, with an increase of narrow networks and a growing importance on clinical performance as a consideration for network access. AccessHealth is evolving to the changing market by providing its members with the tools needed to help improve their clinical performance and better position their members for network inclusion in the future.
“Pharmacy reimbursement models are continuously evolving. Community pharmacy’s ability to provide solutions that help their patients improve their health and improve their scores across an increasing number of performance measures is a key to their survival,” explained PrescribeWellness’ Thuyen. “Unifying thousands of AccessHealth member pharmacies under one platform provides a significant voice to a variety of stakeholders and provides AccessHealth with a powerful message as they work with their PBM partners on future network inclusion, evolving reimbursement models and new revenue opportunities.”
