Shifting from a “pill-centric to patient-centric” focus, cloud-based prescription service is now available for North Carolina consumers — enabling streamlined information sharing and care coordination — provider PrescribeWellness announced recently from its hub in Irvine, California.
Focusing on collaboration via its Pharmacist eCare Plan initiative, PrescribeWellness helps patients avoid store lines and call centers by delivering local community pharmacy care and convenience: including prescription refills and transfers and home delivery.
The company expressed optimism about its progress, revealing that the successful completion of its first phase means that hundreds of Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC) customers will now have access to its services.
“Community pharmacists play a critical role in improving the health of their patients in their communities, and PrescribeCare will enable them to do even more,” PrescribeWellness CEO Al Babbington said. “Community pharmacies are being empowered to make the paradigm shift from being pill-centric to patient-centric, and enhanced services are an integral part of that.”
On its website, the company stressed that consumers could either have their medicine delivered; or they could visit their local pharmacies, emphasizing freedom of choice.
“We serve nearly 400 community pharmacies in North Carolina — they are leading the way in the establishment of new payment models and demonstrating that their encounters reduce costs,” Babbington said.
