AssistMed has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Definitive Homecare Solutions, to develop and offer an interface between its Patient Adherence Solutions and Definitive Homecare Solutions’ CPR+ patient and business management software designed for specialty pharmacy customer applications.
AssistMed’s Patient Adherence Solutions include Clinication, a web-based patient/provider adherence management system and CellPly, a device-independent mobile phone solution which follows the patient wherever they may be.
The technologies are designed to support and reinforce pharmacy’s focus on patient education, ongoing monitoring, and required interventions at a fraction of the cost of traditional outbound call centers. DHS’ CPR+ software provides workflow queues specific to their specialty pharmacy customers as part of its pharmacy enterprise management system.
AssistMed claimed that its solutions help patients, providers, and caregivers collaborate via web and cell phone-based applications, improving patients’ adherence to prescribed plans-of-care and promoting medication regimen persistency and self-care compliance, a vital aspect of specialty pharmacy patient care.
Adee Feinstein, vice president of patient adherence solutions at AssistMed, said: Our strategic alliance with Definitive Homecare Solutions will greatly enhance patient care and create significant opportunities for both our organisations.
“He noted that healthcare professionals recognise the innovative features and effectiveness of Definitive Homecare Solutions’ CPR+ patient and business management software for specialty pharmacies applications, and we look forward to providing the specialty pharmacy market with the enhanced benefits of offering our combined technologies.”
Stuart Crane, co-owner of Definitive Homecare Solutions, said: The need for patient adherence is particularly pronounced with specialty pharmacies. AssistMed’s Patient Adherence Solutions provide innovative, cost-effective tools for specialty pharmacies to engage patients in their treatment and improve patient outcomes. We are pleased to work with AssistMed to further enhance CPR+ for our specialty pharmacy customers.”
