PLYMOUTH, Minn. — Thrifty White Pharmacy on Thursday announced the introduction of its new Healthy Outcomes Diabetes Support Program. The program will provide patients with diabetes an additional 24 touch points annually, customized to their needs to help maximize health outcomes.
The company said the new program enables employers in the communities it serves to act on helping manage diabetes, something the employers have noted as one of their top two concerns, given that it has been estimated to cost $245 billion in direct and indirect costs.
The program includes comprehensive medication reviews, personalized goal setting, disease education and biometric screenings, including A1c checks to monitor progress. The company’s RxMedSync refill scheduling program forms the foundation of the program and allows the clinical support team, patient and pharmacist align on goals. It will be offered directly to employers and through health plan partnerships beginning this month for a per-member-per-month fee.
