PrescribeWellness adds industry relations director
Irvine, Calif.-based cloud services company PrescribeWellness has named a new directory of industry relations. Eugene O’Donnell joins the company from Mirixa, where he oversaw business development, having previously led the development of tech-driven clinical care tools for pharmacists.
“We are excited to welcome Eugene to the team,” PrescribeWellness founder and CEO Al Babbington said. “Eugene brings with him years of pharmacy experience and relationships. He will be an asset in helping us to bring our technology solutions to community pharmacies across the nation — solutions that help them go ‘beyond the fill’ every day to provide important clinical and preventive care services to their communities — and get paid for them.”
O’Donnell has previously served as CEO of the South Carolina Pharmacy Association and the executive director of the Mississippi Pharmacy Association, where he advocated on behalf of pharmacists.
“The PrescribeWellness team is exceptional, and it is an honor to be a part of a solution so directly empowering pharmacists to deliver clinical services and assume a greater role in patient care,” said O’Donnell.
