TROY, Mich. — Pharmacy Advantage on Tuesday launched its mobile device application, Pharm Adv, powered by mscripts. This pharmacy solution is intended to improve patient access and convenience in obtaining prescribed medications. Utilization of this program will allow patients to scan/refill prescriptions, receive date shipped notification, be given dosage reminders and access an overview of their medication records.
Non-smartphone users will have an option to receive text messages, alerting them to drug therapy updates/status to avoid being excluded from the benefits this service affords.
“We view mscripts mobile application as an opportunity for patients to take on a more engaged role in their treatment and medication needs,” stated Daniel Kus, VP Pharmacy Advantage Specialty Pharmacy. “Collaborative therapy management and employment of technological resources is the future of healthcare. This program encompasses the best of these two worlds.”
The new app Pharm Adv and its website operate on a secure network created by mscripts.
As a result of the combined faculties between McKesson’s EnterpriseRx pharmacy management system and mscripts, Pharmacy Advantage can extend a variety of mobile communication pathways to its customers. The easy-to-use application is available to download through Apple iTunes or the Android Market at no charge.
“As a leader in medication therapy management programs, Pharmacy Advantage is uniquely able to influence healthier outcomes for their patients through the use of mobile technology,” said Mark Cullen, CEO of mscripts. “The partnership between clinical support, pharmacy operations and electronic data networks lead to significant improvements in medication adherence resulting in drastically decreased adverse effects/unnecessary hospitalizations in the patient population.”
