McKesson Pharmacy Systems gets Creative for eCare Plans

By Michael Johnsen - 02/08/2018
McKesson Pharmacy Systems on Wednesday announced a new partnership with Creative Pharmacist, a market leader in providing pharmacies with clinical pharmacy solutions. The partnership is expected to empower pharmacies using McKesson’s pharmacy management systems with the ability to manage Pharmacist eCare Plans.

“We believe our alliance with Creative Pharmacist will help transform relationships between community pharmacists and their patients living with chronic disease,” Bernie Reese, senior vice president and general manager, McKesson Pharmacy Systems, said. “Creative Pharmacist has played a key role in helping community pharmacies expand the services they offer far beyond dispensing and ties directly into McKesson’s strategy of enabling pharmacies to maximize operational and clinical performance.”

Pharmacist eCare Plans include a vital shared document containing a patient’s current treatment regimen, medication support needs drug therapy issues and other pertinent details about the pharmacy’s interventions and patient health outcomes.

“Pharmacists are now providing clinical services and participating in enhanced service networks in every state in the nation,” David Pope, chief of innovation and co-founder of Creative Pharmacist, said. “With this partnership, pharmacists using McKesson’s pharmacy management systems will be able to engage their patients, document their encounters, and bill for clinical services, all within their workflow.”

In addition to providing support and Pharmacy eCare Plans, the integration of McKesson software technology with Creative Pharmacist can help pharmacies succeed as they increase their services and the growth of high performance networks continues. Whether it’s through diabetes counseling, smoking cessation programs or immunization clinics, the integrated technologies can help pharmacies streamline their workflow and enhance their profitability.
