West Deptford, NJ (PRWEB) February 08, 2012
Enclara Health and AseraCare announced today that they have entered into a new agreement whereby Enclara Health will become the national pharmacy services provider for AseraCare’s hospice population of more than 3,000 patients. Under the terms of this agreement, Enclara will provide mail order and local access to prescription medications to serve the needs of both home and institutional hospice patients nationwide.
Earlier this year, AseraCare tested Enclara’s services at eleven of its sites and, based on the positive outcomes and experiences of the trial, elected to contract with Enclara for service at all of its remaining hospice locations.
Andy Horowitz, CEO of Enclara Health, said, “We are pleased to join in this partnership with AseraCare. We feel that our pharmacy model will help to enhance the already stellar quality that AseraCare offers its patients nationally.”
“At AseraCare, we provide patients and their families facing serious illness and grief both quality of care and quality of life,” said Angela Hollis, Vice President of Clinical Operations for AseraCare. “Keeping our hospice patients as pain- and symptom-free as possible allows that to happen. To that end, we are proud to offer our patients and caregivers a new level of pharmacy support through Enclara.”
