Omnicell Announces Enhancements to its Patient Management Access Portal (PMAP) for Improved Patient Adherence and Pharmacy Workflow
More than 30 million Americans are taking five or more maintenance medications daily, however, as many as half of all patients who require medications to treat chronic conditions do not take them as prescribed.1,2 This accounts for 30%-50% of all treatment failures and 125,000 deaths annually.3
"Pharmacists have a tremendous responsibility related to medication use," said Dared Price, PharmD, president of Graves Drug Stores. "PMAP's current features free-up time in the pharmacy that allows us to focus on what matters most—taking care of patients. The efficiency we've gained has also allowed us to better manage our operations as a whole, which is vital to our business."
New additions to the PMAP system include:
- Targeted Adherence Interventions - Proactive engagement of patients at the time of their initial chronic disease diagnosis, which encourages positive adherence behaviors. This newest PMAP feature equips the pharmacy staff with timely, focused, script-supported interventions to help patients avoid problems related to non-adherence.
- Time My Meds Dashboards - Dashboards from
Time My Meds Medication Synchronization Softwarewill provide pharmacists with individualized performance snapshots, including pharmacy-specific metrics on patient adherence, proportion of days covered (PDC) adherence analysis of stores' Medicare patients, medication synchronization program enrollments, and a comparative view against a broader set of similar pharmacies.
- Immunization Solutions -
Omnicell'sImmunization Solutions help the pharmacy identify patients in need of vaccinations while simplifying pharmacist workflow and supporting financial success. This solution allows the pharmacy to work directly with the state immunization registries and automatically update patient vaccination records.
- Single Sign-On for Integration with
Third Party Software- Integration with iMedicare software enables pharmacists to view benefits, compare plan options, and quickly identify closed networks. With this feature, the pharmacist is able to assist patients in making informed choices about the Medicare plan options they prefer. Additionally, integration with Pharmacy Quality Solutions' EQuIPP provides a single platform for reconciling pharmacy performance data with benchmark-based quality measures.
These four enhancements to the PMAP platform give pharmacists turnkey solutions to improve medication adherence, helping to provide quality care for patients, enhance health outcomes, and reduce healthcare costs. In addition, they help streamline existing pharmacy workflow, increase patient loyalty, and improve pharmacy business health.
"Pharmacists are front-line members of the healthcare team, providing care for patients in the communities where they live, helping them to manage their chronic conditions, promoting self-care, and encouraging healthy adherence behavior. Their value to helping improve healthcare is enormous," said
