McLean, Va. (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
In an announcement made today, RxAnte, Inc. revealed it has extended its contract with WellCare Health Plans, Inc., a managed care organization headquartered in Tampa, Fla., for an additional three years. This extension developed from a one-year relationship in which RxAnte provided WellCare with strategic recommendations for an improved adherence strategy.
Under the newly-extended agreement, RxAnte will use its patent-pending health care analytics platform to obtain a further understanding of medication use among WellCare members. RxAnte and WellCare will use this information to make more informed decisions on the best way to address the unique needs of each patient. This targeted approach aims to help WellCare improve health care quality standards.
“Gaining insight into how our members take their medication equips us with valuable information,” said Laura Hungiville, WellCare’s Vice President and General Manager of Prescription Drug Plans and Specialty Pharmacy. “We now have data that puts us in a unique position to address medication adherence in a way that motivates behavior change and lowers costs. Our continuation of work with RxAnte will help us build on a strong foundation for improving medication use among our members.”
