Ateb’s Time My Meds surpasses 1 million patients enrolled, managed


BOSTON — Patient care solutions company Ateb on Friday announced a major milestone for the company from the National Association of Chain Drug Stores’ Total Store Expo. Currently, more than 1 million patients are enrolled and actively managed by Ateb’s pharmacy partners using its Time My Meds automated medication synchronization solution. 


“We are extremely proud of our collaborative efforts with our valued pharmacy partners to attain this industry milestone that demonstrates how pharmacy’s commitment and reach can successfully impact patient health,” Ateb president and CEO Frank Sheppard said. “We look forward to working with our current and future pharmacy partners as we continue to grow and leverage this intuitive system that allows our partners to effectively, efficiently and easily manage this volume of patients in order to deliver even more accessible and affordable health care.”


Non-adherence is estimated to cost the U.S. healthcare system some $337 billion, according to a 2013 report from Express Scripts, and Time My Meds is aimed at driving adherence while increasing prescription fills and improving quality measures. An NCPA study found that use of Time My Meds yielded an incremental 1.8 prescription fills while leveraging an appointment-based model. 


“Community pharmacists are uniquely positioned to engage their patients and support their optimal use of and adherence to their prescribed medication,” NCPA CEO Doug Hoey said. “NCPA is fully committed to helping community pharmacists promote adherence and the importance of doing so will only grow with the emphasis on Medicare Star Ratings and other value-driven health care changes. Technology such as Ateb’s Time My Meds is instrumental to ensuring that pharmacists are successful in this area. We congratulate Ateb on reaching this milestone and look forward to our continued collaboration.”
