Aspen RxHealth Adds Targeted Medication Review and Health Plan Star Rating Services to its Clinical Documentation Tool for Pharmacists

Targeted medication review

TAMPA, Fla.– Oct 8, 2019 —Aspen RxHealth announced today a new major release of its intelligent app that connects pharmacists with patients to support optimal medication use. The app makes it easy for health plans and providers to connect their patients with an on-demand community of pharmacists. A first-of-its-kind clinical documentation tool for pharmacists, Aspen RxHealth now offers targeted medication reviews (TMR) that drive health plan Star Ratings.

“Our intelligent app opens up an entirely new ‘gig economy’ for pharmacists and makes it easy for health plans to leverage the skills of thousands of pharmacist experts who are available at any given time,” said Dr. David Medvedeff, chief executive officer, Aspen RxHealth. “We bridge the gap between pharmacists who want an opportunity to practice at the top of their license and patients who need medication management services. In doing so, we enable a more engaged, holistic relationship between pharmacist and patient.”

New Services in Version 2.0
A recent Humana study comparing the differences in medication therapy management (MTM) services found that targeted medication reviews (TMR) were highly successful interventions. The study highlights how critical it is for Part D and Medicare Advantage plans to contribute to better therapeutic outcomes for the patients they serve. Furthermore, the study determined that TMR interventions were more successful at lowering acute inpatient admissions. Patients were far more likely to adhere to their medications when their providers focused on targeted interventions and were less likely to visit the emergency department.

Medicare uses a Star Rating System to measure how well Medicare Advantage and Part D plans perform. Medicare scores performance in several categories, including quality of care and customer service. The Aspen RxHealth platform supports pharmacy-related Star Measures including medication adherence and the use of cholesterol-lowering medications known as “statins” in patients with diabetes.

Expanding App Availability Footprint
In addition to the new TMR service line, Aspen RxHealth is expanding its geographic footprint. Currently offering its industry-changing service in Florida, the company is announcing an expansion into Texas and Virginia in the coming months. In making the announcement, Dr. Brad Tice, senior vice president of pharmacy practice, said, “Our mission is to create the most responsive community of pharmacists to serve patients and families. As we begin our expansion, we are excited about the opportunities to work with local pharmacists to drive better outcomes.”

Humana Collaborates with Aspen RxHealth to Offer New App to Connect Patients and Pharmacists

Pharmcist testimonials

TAMPA, Fla.– Jun 25, 2019 — Aspen RxHealth announced today that Humana, Inc. (NYSE: HUM), a leading health and well-being company, has chosen the company’s app-based platform to connect pharmacists with patients to deliver clinical services, including medication therapy management (MTM).

Aspen RxHealth’s innovative approach to establishing the patient-pharmacist relationship is built on the proven model of crowdsourcing and enabling a two-sided marketplace.

Aspen RxHealth will leverage their community of pharmacists to contact Humana Medicare Advantage members and review medications, provide education and answer questions about their therapy. Humana launched this program in Tampa, Florida, with a potential expansion into other markets later this year.

“With evolving trends of moving care out of expensive facilities to anywhere, anytime; and moving care to the appropriate level of care provider, pharmacists are emerging as a key solution to many of the challenges in our healthcare system,” said David Medvedeff, chief executive officer, Aspen RxHealth. “Humana is leading this movement to enhance the role of pharmacists in the new models of care delivery that have the potential to disrupt and dramatically improve our health system. A key factor to facilitating this shift is enabling the required capacity that is both responsive and elastic; that is precisely the work we are doing at Aspen RxHealth.”

The pharmacists in the Aspen RxHealth community empower patients with the information and action plans they need in an effort to positively impact their health care goals. Improved interoperability and more coordinated care allow the pharmacist to better ‘plug in’ and serve as a cornerstone of the patient’s extended care team.

“Pharmacies only have records about prescriptions they fill, and insurance companies generally only have records if there is a claim. This means some medications may fall through the cracks if a patient uses more than one pharmacy, pays for a prescription out of pocket or takes an over-the-counter medication or a supplement that does not require a claim. By working with Aspen RxHealth, we help ensure our members talk to their pharmacists about their medication plan and their intended treatment goals. A patient that stays engaged with their medication management is critical to improving whole person health,” said Scott Greenwell, President, Humana Pharmacy Solutions.

About Humana: 
Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) is committed to helping our millions of medical and specialty members achieve their best health. Our successful history in care delivery and health plan administration is helping us create a new kind of integrated care with the power to improve health and well-being and lower costs. Our efforts are leading to a better quality of life for people with Medicare, families, individuals, military service personnel, and communities at large.

To accomplish that, we support physicians and other health care professionals as they work to deliver the right care in the right place for their patients, our members. Our range of clinical capabilities, resources and tools – such as in-home care, behavioral health, pharmacy services, data analytics and wellness solutions – combine to produce a simplified experience that makes health care easier to navigate and more effective.

Aspen RxHealth Launches Next Generation Technology to Support Pharmacists in Delivering Unsurpassed Outcomes for Patients

Edit medication during MTM services

Company raises $9 million Series A to build its world class team and accelerate the implementation

TAMPA, FLA December 12, 2018

Aspen RxHealth formally announced today its entrance into the healthcare technology and services market with an app-based intervention technology that connects pharmacists with patients to deliver clinical services including medication therapy management (MTM). Aspen RxHealth’s mission is to enable the most responsive community of pharmacists that will deliver unsurpassed outcomes for patients and their families.

The company also announced it has closed a $9M Series A round of funding, led by Flare Capital Partners, with participation from a leading national strategic partner. The capital infusion will be used to accelerate the development of its disruptive technology platform and aggressively add talent to the company. An early addition to the world class team is Dr. Brad Tice, Pharm.D., MBA. Dr. Tice joins the company bringing years of deep domain knowledge and professional leadership. He is currently the incoming president of the American Pharmacists Association.

“We don’t think of pharmacy practice in terms of the number of corner drug stores or centralized call centers,” said David Medvedeff, chief executive officer, Aspen RxHealth. “We think of pharmacists anywhere at any time working as a community serving those in need. Every patient is unique and so is every pharmacist. At Aspen RxHealth our goal is to leverage these individual characteristics to optimize communication and enhance the experience for everyone involved.”

Industry Ripe for Disruption

The goals to improve medication adherence, reduce errors and improve chronic care management are rising every year. Significant headwinds impacting these goals include patients taking more medications with greater complexities and managing escalating costs. While pharmacies have made significant strides, there is greater scrutiny on MTM, care transition gaps, and specialty medication support. These factors drive the need for the role of the pharmacist to be expanded to offer a more meaningful patient-centric connection focused on optimizing the use of medications. The pharmacists in the Aspen RxHealth community empower patients with the information and action plans they need to have a profound impact on their healthcare goals.

“Pharmacies have made tremendous advancements in workflow automation, compliance packaging and delivery services, but there still seems to be a problem,” said Michael Greeley, co-founder and general partner, Flare Capital Partners. “The answer is reestablishing the patient-pharmacist relationship in ways that were never before possible. That’s where Aspen RxHealth comes in. Improved interoperability and more coordinated care networks allow the pharmacist to better ‘plug in’ and serve as a cornerstone of the patient’s extended care team.”

Next Generation Solution

Built from the beginning leveraging the most sophisticated approaches to clinical decision support and security, Aspen RxHealth’s mobile app and full technology platform ensure quality assurance with pharmacist onboarding and all patient interactions. The company’s novel approach to reestablishing the patient-pharmacist relationship is built on the proven model of crowdsourcing and enabling a two-sided marketplace.
