Enabling our independent pharmacies to elevate patient care and improve their impact on your ratings.
Both industry pressure on managing costs and CMS Star Ratings make it critical that you take a close look at pharmacy performance. Cardinal Health understands, and works hard to evolve our solutions and ensure that our pharmacies remain top performers.
We are helping our more than 5,000 community pharmacies see exactly how they contribute to CMS Star Ratings and pinpoint areas for improvement. We then arm them with a wide selection of flexible and customizable tools for driving patient engagement and adherence. And as the country’s third largest group of affiliated pharmacy contracting networks, Cardinal Health is uniquely qualified to deliver the resources required to support high-performing pharmacies and higher CMS Star Ratings.
Helping pharmacies see how they measure up
As CMS Star Ratings become more critical to the future of pharmacy, we work closely with our pharmacies to help them understand their performance. Access to EQuIPP™, a neutral intermediary for the calculation of pharmacy quality scores for both pharmacies and Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) and Medicare Part D plans, allows them to monitor their performance on an ongoing basis.
Enabling pharmacies to identify the patients who have the most impact on performance
With pharmacy quality measures focused on adherence, even a few patients who don’t take their medications as indicated have a negative impact on a pharmacy’s quality measure performance. EQuIPP™ Patient Outlier reporting and Adherence Reports from our Reimbursement Consulting Services (RCS) show our pharmacies which patients are most in need of help.
RCS Adherence Reports include:
Providing pharmacies with solutions tailored to patients’ challenges
Each patient faces a different set of adherence challenges, so we arm our pharmacies with a wide variety of solutions that allow them to offer patients the best set of solutions to help them take their medications as prescribed.
