“Medication safety and management of chronic illness are international problems. We are excited to work with HumanisRx to bring our proprietary MTM methods to Canada through the use of RxCompanion,” said TRHC Chairman and CEO Calvin H. Knowlton, PhD. “RxCompanion is one of a suite of technology offerings by TRHC designed to optimize medication treatment. We plan to continue to expand the footprint of the use of our MTM and Medication Risk Mitigation technologies in the US and internationally.
The RxCompanion software supports Medication Management services provided by pharmacists employed by HumanisRx. “RxCompanion is a critical piece of our strategy to introduce innovative medication management initiatives to Canada,” said Jeff May, RPh, President of HumanisRx. “The US experience with this technology has proven that it will enable us to identify patients at risk for medication-related problems in a highly scalable way for the market in Canada.” HumanisRx programs help patients optimize their medications and reduce or prevent adverse drug events through a powerful combination of RxCompanion technology and personalized pharmacist counseling. Improved medication use resulting from these programs will positively impact health outcomes and reduce costs of sub-optimal medication use currently borne by individuals, employers, insurers and governments.
In the United States, RxCompanion software is used to support pharmacist-driven MTM services for millions of Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial insurance members. The technology is used by thousands of pharmacists to provide medication management for patients with complex and chronic illness. Using healthcare data from clients, including health plans, their pharmacy benefit managers, and community pharmacies, RxCompanion software identifies patients at risk for medication-related problems. Pharmacists collaborate to resolve problems identified through direct contact with patients and prescribers.
