PharmaSmart partners with McKesson on patient management solution

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — PharmaSmart International, a leading manufacturer of validated health screening kiosks and cloud-based health management solutions, has partnered with McKesson Pharmacy Systems to deliver a new, integrated solution for outcome-based patient management, the company announced Monday.

The integration brings together PharmaSmart’s clinical-grade, public-use health kiosk solutions with McKesson’s new Clinical Programs Solution, a product that helps retail pharmacies manage clinical programs directly within their pharmacy management system. CPS synchronizes PharmaSmart patient data with McKesson’s EnterpriseRx pharmacy management system.

“Our clients are looking for tools that enable their pharmacy teams to practice clinical care to the full extent of their license, while at the same time driving new clinical revenue and sustaining workflow efficiency," stated Josh Sarkis, PharmaSmart SVP strategic business development. "Our integrated solution with McKesson’s CPS platform accomplishes all three.”

“With today’s healthcare system moving towards a value-based reimbursement approach, integrated technology like McKesson’s Clinical Programs Solution, and specialized vendor integrations such as PharmaSmart, become more essential,” said Bernie Reese, SVP and general manager, McKesson Pharmacy Systems. “By leveraging new technologies to execute clinical services at a high level, community retail pharmacies can carve out new, sustained revenue streams, and become key stakeholders in value-based healthcare models.”
