LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Health IT start-up Revon Systems, of Crestwood, KY, has entered into an alliance agreement with pharmacy benefits management company Appro-Rx, of Waynesville, OH, to provide employers with a new kind of pharmacy benefit that combines technology and medication patterns to help keep employees well and reduce healthcare costs.
Revon Systems CEO, Dr. Ted Smith, said, "We are excited to see our artificial intelligence technology to help those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) become integrated into a next generation pharmacy benefit manager like Appro-Rx. Given the amount of money being spent on prescription medications, it is surprising most employers pay these expenses without expecting better alignment between health care expenditures and outcomes." Appro-Rx President, Kyle Fields, said, "As the only truly transparent PBM in the industry, Appro-Rx prides itself in reducing pharmacy benefit cost while investing in solutions that help employers provide wellness benefits that actually deliver wellness."
The new agreement offers employers with Appro-Rx pharmacy services the following benefits:
- The Revon COPD mobile application for Android and iPhone with the Smart Symptom Tracker™
- The Breathe COPD Resource Kit™ with the leading Bluetooth connected pulse oximeter
- The Amazon "Alexa" Echo COPD Skill
- Smart Formulary Services that combine medication adherence with Revon application use
