Kansas Pharmacists Association (KPhA) is pleased to announce it has signed an agreement with Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc. (“TRHC”), a healthcare technology company advancing safer use of medications, to educate members on TRHC’s medication safety software, MedWise™. The partnership will develop medication safety programming and promote the opportunity for pharmacists to become Certified MedWise Advisors™, expanding the skillset to enhance patient outcomes and reduce overall costs.
KPHA’s purpose and mission is dedicated to the advancement and promotion of quality and rational public health, with particular reference to assuring optimal pharmacotherapy for the citizens of Kansas. The Association is founded upon its commitment to preserve, protect, and advance the interests of, and to serve the economic, educational, ethical, and social needs of the pharmacy profession.
“This partnership exemplifies our mission to promote and protect the role of pharmacists as the medication expert in patient care relationships, and as an integral part of the health care team,” said KPHA Executive Director Aaron Dunkel. “ We look forward to collaborating with TRHC to bring awareness of polypharmacy and place MedWise in the hands of as many pharmacists in Kansas as we can.”
MedWise’s ability to create a simultaneous, multi-drug analysis identifies patients who are at high risk for adverse drug events. With this information, pharmacists can provide personalized medication management for the patient, a game-changer for pharmacy practice.
“TRHC is proud to partner with KPHA in creating awareness of the safe use of medication,” said TRHC President Orsula V. Knowlton, PharmD, MBA. “A primary role of pharmacists in the community is to promote patient wellness and safety. Through the broad use of MedWise, we are preparing Kansas pharmacists, today, and for the post-COVID-19 future. Our systems support pharmacists as they continue to be sought-after for direct care, including the management of complex medication regimens to optimize outcomes and reduce total costs.”
As part of the initiative, TRHC will be hosting exclusive Product Theater sessions to educate members on this revolutionary technology and learn how it can be leveraged to improve patient outcomes and reduce overall healthcare costs. Register today!
