Community Pharmacy Consolidated Platform
to Empower Performance Networks

BESSEMER, AL – October 9, 2014 – American Pharmacy Cooperative, Inc. (APCI) a member-owned group purchasing organization comprised of over 1,300 independent pharmacies acknowledged today the expansion of their partnership with PrescribeWellness. APCI and PrescribeWellness announce the launch of PRO Wellness, the industry’s first consolidated platform to provide APCI’s Managed Care members of American Pharmacy Network Services (APNS), the tools they need to become the top performing network in the country.

APCI and PrescribeWellness, the SaaS Company with a cloud-based platform that delivers efficient patient communications and related services to community pharmacists, will kick off their partnership and demonstrate the powerful new APCI PRO Wellness dashboard at the National Community Pharmacy Association’s 116th Annual Convention and Trade Exposition held October 18-22, 2014 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 Chief Operating Officer. “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 innovative technology from PrescribeWellness and the new PRO Wellness dashboard will provide all APCI Managed Care members the ability to efficiently 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 (PRO) financial dashboard combined with PrescribeWellness’ STAR ratings technologies making the new platform a robust single source hybrid of clinical and financial resources. Its functionality elevates the member pharmacist’s ability to enhance the level of patient care while simultaneously providing performance indicators to achieve the highest levels of efficiencies. The complimentary nature and vision of APCI and PrescribeWellness makes PRO Wellness a one of a kind performance model in the community pharmacy industry.

“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,” said Tony Thuyen, PrescribeWellness Co-Founder. “APCI wants to be able to evaluate their member’s 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.”
