BOSTON, Aug. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ateb®, Inc., the industry's leading provider of pharmacy-based patient care solutions, announced at the NACDS Total Store Expo that its pharmacy partners enrolled and actively manage over one million patients a month in Ateb's Time My Meds®, automated medication synchronization solution. This significant achievement solidifies Ateb's position as the leading national provider of medication synchronization to independent and chain pharmacies.
"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," stated Frank Sheppard, President and CEO, Ateb. "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," added Sheppard.
Most patients do not take their medications as prescribed and $337 billion1 is the estimated cost for medication non-adherence. With the right tools, pharmacy has a tremendous opportunity to expand their role in the era of value-driven health care.
By implementing Ateb's Time My Meds, Ateb's pharmacy partners will witness significant, measurable impact on improving patient medication adherence, increasing prescription fills and improving quality measures. Patients enrolled in Ateb's Time My Meds program reach above Medicare 5-Star Proportion of Days Covered (PDC) score thresholds for diabetes, hypertension, and cholesterol.
"Community pharmacists are uniquely positioned to engage their patients and support their optimal use of and adherence to their prescribed medication," said NCPA CEO B. Douglas Hoey, RPh, MBA. "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."
Not all medication synchronization programs operating today deliver the same results or leverage the Appointment Based Model (ABM). The adoption of Ateb's automated Time My Meds solution yielded substantial improvement in patient medication adherence and delivered an incremental 1.8 prescription fills, as demonstrated in a study by the NCPA. Details of the study are available at www.ncpanet.org/adherence.
