New York, Michigan and Hawaii first states to initiate
MOORESTOWN, N.J., Aug. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tabula Rasa HealthCare(NASDAQ:TRHC) a leading provider of technology-enabled solutions to mitigate medication risk and reduce medical costs, today announced a new offering of Comprehensive Medication Review (CMR) opportunities to community pharmacists through the collaboration of two of its subsidiary companies, SinfoníaRx (SRx) and PrescribeWellness (PW). Community pharmacists now will have the opportunity to conduct face-to-face CMRs with their patients and receive compensation for additional clinical services.
"Engaging community pharmacists to provide in-person CMRs through PW's Patient Engagement Center enhances our current solution and will further our efforts to expand community pharmacy practice," explained TRHC Chairman and CEO Calvin H. Knowlton, PhD. "It is thrilling to see the synergies that are occurring as we continue to integrate our recent acquisitions within the TRHC solutions."
The collaboration between SRx, the largest provider of telephonic CMRs, and PW, one of the largest networks of community pharmacies, benefits patients, their pharmacists and their health plans. For patients, there is an increased access to telephonic or in-person consultations. For pharmacists, the CMRs can be quickly and accurately documented as eCare Plans within the Patient Engagement Center using PrescribeCare, as they review all of a patient's medications to help determine the efficacy of each medication prescribed. For payors, more eligible members will complete a CMR to ensure they are receiving optimized care.
"Adverse drug events are the third leading cause of death in the U.S.," said Knowlton. "Too many people are on too many medications, contradicting one another, taken at the wrong time. A Comprehensive Medication Review could save a life. Our next addition to the SinfoniaRx and PrescribeWellness offerings will be our MedWise™ medication decision support tools that have been documented to improve outcomes, reduce costs, and improve quality."
