Cardinal Health recently announced a partnership with Signify Health to provide clinical and medication management services in-home through its OutcomesTM business. This partnership will support the prescription-to-pharmacy-to-home treatment journey for more than 2.3 million members across the US by reducing costs and eliminating care gaps.
Numerous members do not follow their prescribed medications, according to studies. By combining Signify Health's mobile network of 11,000+ credentialed clinicians with Outcomes' industry-leading OutcomesOneTM clinical care platform and omnichannel network of payers and pharmacies, this collaboration will assist in solving medication management challenges for members of the health plan. It will achieve this by providing coordinated care from Signify Health clinicians, who will also perform evaluations of those members at-home.
Signify Health can use the OutcomesOneTM platform to determine and address patients' medication therapy management requirements based on the information gathered during in-home evaluations. The collaboration will initially focus on interventions advised for Medicare Advantage members of mutual clients and may expand to include additional services, like clinical interventions and population health programs.
David Pierre, COO of Signify Health, stated, "From our experience conducting medication reviews in thousands of homes each day, we understand the importance of making medication management more convenient, accessible and connected to daily life." He added, "We look forward to joining forces with Outcomes to bring this vital service to improve medication safety and adherence and drive more value for the people we are privileged to serve."
