PrescribeWellness, APCI launch platform to empower performance networks
BESSEMER, Ala. — American Pharmacy Cooperative, a member-owned group purchasing organization comprising more than 1,300 independent pharmacies, has expanded its partnership with PrescribeWellness to launch a community pharmacy consolidated platform.
The new PRO Wellness consolidated platform provides APCI’s Managed Care members of American Pharmacy Network Services the tools they need to become top performers in every one of the quality measurements.
APCI and PrescribeWellness, a SaaS company with a cloud-based platform that delivers patient communications and related services to community pharmacists, will kick off their partnership and demonstrate the new APCI PRO Wellness dashboard at the National Community Pharmacy Association’s 116th Annual Convention and Trade Exposition held Oct. 18 to 22 in Austin, Texas.
“Our expanded partnership with PrescribeWellness allows us to provide our Managed Care members of APNS the tools they need to become top performers in every one of the quality measurements,” stated Susan Maze, APCI COO. “The platform will also give us the insights we need to work with our members to achieve excellent ratings and report our success as a performance network.”
The technology from PrescribeWellness and the new PRO Wellness dashboard will provide all APCI Managed Care members the ability to improve Star Ratings, adherence, chronic disease management, and all key preventive health care measures. It will also allow for segmentation of performance by diagnosis group, PBM, and payer to identify high performance areas and target those in need of improvement.
PRO Wellness will allow for the seamless integration of data from the APCI’s Pharmacy Retail Operations financial dashboard combined with PrescribeWellness’ Star Ratings technologies making the new platform a single source hybrid of clinical and financial resources.
“The PRO Wellness platform is the foundation to expand the role of pharmacy in America and will serve as a key enabler to pharmacists providing preventive health care services,” stated Tony Thuyen, PrescribeWellness co-founder. “APCI wants to be able to evaluate their members’ ratings and other patient engagement metrics in aggregate so that they can better position themselves as a performance network. PRO Wellness will allow them to do that.”
