Encourages Community Pharmacies to Offer Medicare Plan Reviews to Eligible Seniors
PrescribeWellness, the cloud-based services company whose mission is to inspire collaboration for better health, announced an extension of their partnership with EPIC Pharmacy Network, Inc. (EPN), a pharmacy services administrative organization representing over 1,800 independent pharmacies across the United States.
“We are excited to extend our successful partnership with PrescribeWellness and look forward to offering this comprehensive solution to our member pharmacies for years to come,” said Jay Romero, R.Ph., President of EPN. “EPN is focused on being the highest performing network in the industry and PrescribeWellness is helping achieve that distinction.”
In addition to the contract extension, EPN also contracted PrescribeMedicare for its network members from now until September 2017. PrescribeMedicare is a PrescribeWellness solution that evaluates Medicare plans for a pharmacy’s eligible seniors. By syncing with the pharmacy’s dispensing system, the software takes the patient’s current medications and evaluates the medication costs with the various Medicare plans that are available to them. It provides a simple comparison that allows the Medicare-eligible patient to effectively understand their options.
The companies will collaborate to train network members on PrescribeMedicare and inform the pharmacies’ patients of the services that are available.
“We are proud to assist the EPIC Pharmacy Network in improving Star Ratings and other quality metrics. Networks like EPN, that are focused on quality and outcomes, are the future of pharmacy,” said Al Babbington, CEO and President of PrescribeWellness. “Our team is dedicated to improving patient health across America and our continued partnership with EPN will allow us to continue that great work. We look forward to serving both their pharmacy members and the pharmacy’s patients over the next few years.”
