Tempe, AZ – NOVEMBER 29, 2021 – OnePoint Patient Care (OnePoint) is continuing to expand its high-touch local hospice pharmacy services throughout Texas. With the opening of its newest hospice-dedicated pharmacy in Austin, OnePoint now has eight pharmacies serving more than 1,000 patients across the state.
With the ability to serve multiple markets with same day and STAT dispensing and delivery, OnePoint offers a unique opportunity to better meet the needs of hospice patients. OnePoint is also able to control multiple aspects of the pharmacy experience, due to its integrated Pharmacy Benefits Manager (PBM) and local hospice pharmacy model.
OnePoint’s partnership with PharMerica has accelerated the robust expansion of its pharmacy model in new markets of all sizes. In Texas, OnePoint local pharmacy services are now available in Austin, El Paso, Dallas Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Tyler and Weslaco.
“We are excited that demand continues to grow for our customer-centric approach, unmatched local capabilities, cost-effective pricing and flexible service levels,” said Michael Porpora, President-Western Division, OnePoint. “We share and support our hospice partners’ commitment to providing efficient, compassionate care for patients in communities across Texas.”
OnePoint’s experienced pharmacists specialize in hospice care, providing knowledgeable clinical guidance and therapeutic recommendations 24/7, and offering capabilities from specialty infusion to custom compounding. Patient medication fulfillment and e-prescribing are easier than ever for busy clinicians thanks to the OneConnectPoint™ medication management app. The app also provides on-demand access to valuable clinical tools and PBM reporting.
OnePoint also helps hospices contain costs, improve patient care, and stay compliant through services such as customized formulary development, CoP-compliant medication reviews and MyMetRx, where clinical pharmacists work with hospice partners to define target metrics and solutions based on near-real time data.
“Partnering with OnePoint means Vantage Hospice can always count on highly responsive, outstanding service tailored to our specific needs,” said Nicole Knight, FNP-C, Administrator. “OnePoint’s comprehensive local pharmacy model allows us to focus on our growth and on enhancing our ability to provide the best possible care to each and every patient.”
