TROY, MI & SAN FRANCISCO, CA (August 19, 2014) – Pharmacy Advantage is pleased to announce the inauguration of mobile device application, Pharm Adv, powered by mscripts. This pharmacy solution is intended to improve patient access and convenience in obtaining prescribed medications. It has been documented on a national level that health care technology has contributed to rising survival rates, productivity improvements and expanded longevity. Due to these positive therapeutic influences for patients and increased customer satisfaction, Pharmacy Advantage has embraced the digital revolution. Through the implementation of mscripts, a seamless system of communication between physician, pharmacy, and patient will be available. Utilization of this program will allow patients to scan/refill prescriptions, receive date shipped notification, be given dosage reminders, and access an overview of their medication records.

The enterprise-grade program is the health platform for millions of direct, 2-way interactions between pharmacies and patients. Benefits stemming from routine usage of this feature include greater medication adherence and enhanced customer satisfaction. As a result of the combined faculties between McKesson’s EnterpriseRxTM pharmacy management system and mscripts, Pharmacy Advantage can extend a variety of mobile communication pathways to its customers. The easy-to-use application is available to download through Apple iTunes, the Android Market at no charge.
“As a leader in medication therapy management programs, Pharmacy Advantage is uniquely able to influence healthier outcomes for their patients through the use of mobile technology,” says Mark Cullen, CEO of mscripts. “The partnership between clinical support, pharmacy operations, and electronic data networks lead to significant improvements in medication adherence resulting in drastically decreased adverse effects/unnecessary hospitalizations in the patient population.”
