FDS, Inc. and OutcomesMTM® Finalize Strategic Partnership
April 01, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsApril 1, 2016 – Baltimore MD – FDS, Inc. today announced a strategic partnership with OutcomesMTM®, a Cardinal Health company and leading provider of Medication Therapy Management (MTM) services to the pharmacy market. Pharmacists using the FDS eNGAGE patient management service will be able to view OutcomesMTM patient care opportunities in FDS' eNGAGE patient management system and link directly to a patient case in the OutcomesMTM Connect™ Platform.
Providing MTM services just got easier for FDS eNGAGE pharmacies. With the eNGAGE-OutcomesMTM single sign-on, pharmacy staff can seamlessly access and complete MTM opportunities through eNGAGE. This simple, direct access allows the pharmacy to include MTM opportunities in their prescription processing workflow as well as other patient management tasks like Comprehensive Medication Reviews, five star alerts and med sync opportunities. eNGAGE can also mine pharmacy data to score and prioritize patients who require intervention.
eNGAGE's automated patient messaging extends the in-store relationship with simple but meaningful messages via phone or text to leverage the personal relationships community pharmacies have with their patients.
"We are excited to work with the team at OutcomesMTM to integrate their valuable services into our eNGAGE platform. OutcomesMTM and FDS are working together to help community pharmacies efficiently provide MTM services to improve patient health," said Rich Bukovinsky, EVP Business Development for FDS, Inc.
"Integrating the two platforms better enables pharmacies to make MTM part of their daily workflow-a critical element for building a scalable MTM program within a pharmacy," said Cynthia Kesteloot, Vice President of Operations, OutcomesMTM. "Additionally, this displays MTM opportunities designed to improve patient care when the pharmacist is face-to-face with the patient."
