MORTON GROVE, IL — November 6, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OnePoint Patient Care, the hospice industry leader in customizable pharmacy service provider options, has announced a partnership with Texas-based Jordan Health Services, the region’s leading home care provider. Through the partnership, OnePoint will serve Jordan’s 22 hospice locations and 1,200 patients, bringing the total patients served nationally by OnePoint to more than 32,000.
OnePoint will provide Jordan with Concierge PBM services aimed at standardizing company processes and reducing costs across all locations. Additionally, OnePoint will supply Jordan with Direct Express Local Service and Next Day Valet Mail Order medication dispensing.
“We are thrilled to be a partner with Jordan Health Services, helping to unify their locations under a single set of hospice pharmacy best practices,” said Michael Porpora, OnePoint Patient Care Western Division President. “We strive to improve the pharmacy service experience for each hospice we serve. OnePoint’s unique blend of mail order, PBM and local captive hospice pharmacy services allows Jordan to customize solutions that meet the competitive needs of their local markets.”
Jordan is undergoing a period of tremendous development and sought a partner with the ability to drive – as well as maintain – expansion. “We needed a provider with the technology to integrate all of our separate hospice locations, dispense medications, reduce costs and have the adaptability necessary to grow with us,” said Jordan Vice President of Hospice Operations Michael Kuhn. “After researching numerous pharmacy benefit managers, the choice was easy. OnePoint’s knowledge, service and track record make them an ideal partner.”
Kuhn said several factors set OnePoint apart, including its technology – such as OneConnectPoint, an intuitive medication ordering platform – as well as its commitment to service, utilization and formulary compliance assistance, and ability to customize payment and medication dispensing plans.
