Industry leader in local hospice pharmacy achieves over 75% market share in state
MORTON GROVE, IL — November 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OnePoint Patient Care, an industry leader in local hospice pharmacy, eprescribing technologies and Pharmacy Benefits Management (PBM) solutions, has increased its market share to more than 75 percent for hospice medication dispensing in Colorado.
Since OnePoint entered the Colorado market in 2015, demand has accelerated rapidly for its superior service and clinical support tailored to the needs of individual hospice partners. OnePoint’s recent acquisition of Englewood-based QualMed pharmacy reflects a direct response to the growing demand by Colorado hospices for OnePoint’s local dedicated hospice pharmacy model.
“We are very proud to be able to enhance the pharmacy services for the hospice community in Colorado,” said Michael Porpora, Western Division President at OnePoint. “OnePoint’s approach since our founding has not changed. We believe that owning and operating our own pharmacies translates to a level of customer service unmatched in the industry. Our continued growth demonstrates that there simply is no substitute for decades of local hospice experience.”
OnePoint’s experienced pharmacists specialize in hospice care, providing 24-hour clinical advice, custom medication infusions and therapeutic recommendations. All staff members have electronic access to full patient profiles and drug history for fast, seamless service, and OnePoint’s extensive inventory of hospice medications ensures that whatever patients need is always in stock. In addition, the OneConnectPoint mobile app makes e-prescribing easier than ever for busy hospice clinicians on the go.
“We are glad to begin a partnership with a pharmacy provider that has the ability to adapt to our changing organizational needs for many years to come,” said Tim Bowen, CEO, Care Synergy. “OnePoint’s integrated PBM and local dispensing model, combined with their eprescribing application, will allow our clinical staff to become more efficient in the medication ordering process.”
Kim West, President and Owner of Agape Healthcare, Hospice & Palliative Care, said, “We’re passionate about ensuring that our patients receive outstanding, compassionate care, and we appreciate that OnePoint has that same unwavering commitment. Their proven expertise, responsiveness and superior local dispensing services and support are invaluable in helping us deliver quality care to each and every patient.”
