NEW YORK and RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- iMedicare, the leading Medicare plan comparison software for community pharmacies, and Ateb, Inc., the industry's leading provider of pharmacy-based patient care solutions, announced today their partnership to integrate the iMedicare functionality into Ateb's pharmacy facing platform, Patient Management Access Portal (PMAP). This integration will facilitate easier access for pharmacies to view and compare plan options, and guide patients to select the appropriate plan.
Recognizing the growing importance of the pharmacists' role and the critical need to seamlessly integrate pharmacy into the health care system, Ateb aligns with strategic partners and strives to streamline efficiencies and build value added programs so its pharmacy partners can better serve their patients. With Medicare's open enrollment starting October 15th, Ateb is providing key resources to its pharmacy partners to help their patients navigate the Medicare Part D enrollment process.
"We are excited to integrate iMedicare into Ateb's PMAP platform to provide pharmacies with a single platform to manage their patients. By delivering the right tools and resources, our pharmacy partners can improve their business and offer additional methods to enrich patient care. Our pharmacy partners now have direct access to perform third party plan comparisons, which in turn will continue to drive revenue and improve patient medication adherence, resulting in healthier patient outcomes," stated Frank Sheppard, President and CEO of Ateb.
As an industry innovator in combining technology, analytics, and workflow into seamless patient care solutions, Ateb already collects, analyzes, and tracks patient data and the third party plans in which they participate. For several years, iMedicare has been analyzing the Medicare Part D plan and pharmacy data with the goal of simplifying the process for pharmacies and their patients. The affiliation between the companies will enable pharmacies to quickly identify closed networks and then present their patients with third party plan options to help patients select the plan that is best suited for their needs. This enhanced functionality integrates smoothly into community pharmacy's workflow and also allows pharmacies to focus their attention on Star Ratings for specific third party plans, thereby improving reimbursement opportunities.
"In a world of DIR fees and dozens of Star Rating measures, data intelligence and data accuracy are a must-have. Thousands of pharmacies across the country rely on Ateb and iMedicare to deliver the right data intelligence at the right time. This integration enables pharmacies to impact more patients in much less time," stated Flaviu Simihaian, Co-Founder and CEO, iMedicare.
