Specialty pharmacy provider licenses CareTend hosted software

Mediware Information Systems, Inc., a provider of comprehensive post-acute healthcare software, announces that Sterling Specialty Pharmacy Services has licensed CareTend hosted software for its specialty pharmacy business.

Sterling Specialty Pharmacy Services provides high-quality, high-touch clinical care in a community pharmacy setting to specialty patients in Minnesota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Wisconsin. When evaluating software, Tim Gallagher, Sterling’s president, realized the importance of using a system designed for specialty pharmacy rather than one designed for retail. “We are looking forward to using CareTend and its visual dashboards to manage our workflow in real time. We also appreciate that we’ll be able to pull custom reports on the fly,” says Gallagher. “Another reason we chose CareTend software was the hosted option. It will cut IT costs and server maintenance tremendously while giving us the flexibility to access the system from any location,” he adds.

“We are thrilled that Sterling Specialty Pharmacy Services can benefit from using CareTend software, which was designed with specialty pharmacies in mind,” says Paul O’Toole, vice president and general manager of the Home Care Solutions division of Mediware. “A system that manages the complex workflows of specialty will allow the Sterling staff more time to provide quality patient care.”
