ActualMeds, a provider of cloud-based software for medication management and reconciliation that is integrated with care management, today announced it has partnered with Ohio Pharmacy Counseling Services, Ltd. (OPCS) to offer managed services through its national network of licensed consulting pharmacists. OPCS provides comprehensive medication review and targeted intervention programs as part of its Medication Therapy Management (MTM) services to healthcare plans and other third-party suppliers. The partnership will allow OPCS pharmacists to use the ActualMeds platform to deliver real-time medication management and reconciliation to care teams.
“We are thrilled to work with OPCS, a company known to have established best practices and innovations in the area of medication therapy management,” said Patricia Meisner, CEO of ActualMeds. “Through their network, we will offer a Pharmacist-On-Demand service along with ActualMeds’ up-to-date and accurate medication record, to assist care teams with the medication management of their high-risk patients. Now, every care team member can have access to a patient’s medication history, as well as a virtual pharmacist to help manage medication risk if needed.”
“We are pleased that OPCS’ network of highly-trained, dedicated consulting pharmacists will be able to extend the capacity and scope of services for ActualMeds’ novel approach to linking medication management with the care of complex patients,” said Donald Orleck RPh, CEO and founder of OPCS. “The availability of medication management as a turnkey service will greatly reduce the requirements around implementation and training for an organization’s care team, while still leveraging ActualMeds’ interoperability with care platforms and for data exchange with other systems.”
Medicare, along with many other publicly and privately funded programs, focuses on medication management and reconciliation as critical elements of care management and successful transitions of care.
“The ActualMeds-OPCS partnership is well positioned to offer a solution to payers and providers that combines medication management best practices with the expert care of a pharmacist to provide cost-effective, high-quality care for high-risk patients,” said Meisner.
