Transaction Data Systems, a pharmacy software solutions company, is integrating Cardinal Health's Outcomes platform directly into the pharmacist workflow of the more than 18,000 community retail, chain and grocery pharmacy locations that utilize its portfolio of solutions.
“Outcomes is a leader in connecting payer and pharmaceutical company medication adherence, quality and population health opportunities to pharmacists,” said Jude Dieterman, CEO of Transaction Data Systems. “Through our best-in-class pharmacy management systems and integrating the Outcomes digital capabilities with our PrescribeWellness solution, we are excited to expand the reach of Outcomes, a leading provider of pharmacist-led clinical opportunities to our high-performing retail pharmacy network.”
Together with the Outcomes platform, pharmacies using one of TDS’ pharmacy solutions will be able to seamlessly access opportunities to provide clinical care services for their patients, drive greater connectivity and streamline their workflow for greater operational efficiency. These services will enable patient access to convenient care and provide pharmacists with the ability to drive improved health outcomes through pharmacy interventions and medication therapy management, while accessing additional revenue streams through payer and pharma-sponsored programs, the company said.
