Rite Aid Corporation is now utilizing Pharmacy Quality Solutions’ (PQS) EQuIPP, an information management platform that provides unbiased performance data access to health plans and pharmacy organizations.
“We are excited to see Rite Aid provide their pharmacists with EQuIPP access as part of the Company’s continued focus on improving patient outcomes,” Elliott M. Sogol, Pharmacy Quality Solutions vice president of professional relations, said. “With an increased value being placed on quality outcomes, having easy access to transparent and accurate performance data is key and will help support Rite Aid’s efforts toward best-in-class quality performance.”
In service, EQuIPP will enable Rite Aid pharmacists to review their performance across key quality metrics, compare their performance against industry standards and then focus on patient care matters, such as medication adherence and appropriate medication use.
“Value-based health care is here to stay, and that’s why it’s important for Rite Aid to provide our pharmacists with the resources and tools they need to deliver improved health outcomes for their patients,” Jocelyn Konrad, Rite Aid executive vice president of pharmacy, said. “Our pharmacists are committed to providing excellent care to their customers, and with EQuIPP, we’re empowering them to make an even greater difference in the health and wellbeing of their customers and succeed in today’s healthcare environment.”
With nearly 4,600 locations nationwide, Rite Aid is the largest drugstore chain to provide EQuIPP access to all its pharmacists.
