EVANS, GA – June 9, 2015 – Creative Pharmacist, the industry leader in helping community pharmacies expand the clinical services they provide to their chronically ill patients, today announced a partnership with CARE Pharmacies, a member-owned cooperative of independent pharmacies.
“Creative Pharmacist is a leader in helping organizations like CARE, to find better ways to serve our patients,” stated Michael Wysong, CARE Pharmacies Chief Executive Officer. “Their support and expertise in clinical pharmacy protocol, coupled with their focus on better patient outcomes, made them a natural fit for us.”
The newly formed partnership gives CARE Pharmacies the opportunity to utilize the Creative Pharmacist service offering to attract and retain chronically ill patients in the communities they serve. It allows the pharmacy to provide a premium level of patient care without overwhelming the pharmacy staff with additional responsibilities or burdening the pharmacy’s budget with an unreturned investment.
“We are extremely excited,” shared Karen Kuczynski, Director of Marketing and Business Development at CARE Pharmacies. “Our partnership with Creative Pharmacist aligns perfectly with CARE’s vision to become the premier pharmacy of choice for patients, prescribers, and payors, and to empower pharmacists to think beyond the bench.”
“Creative Pharmacist is pleased to partner with CARE Pharmacies and expand the support services they are providing to their members,” said David Pope, PharmD, CDE, Chief of Innovation at Creative Pharmacist. “We are looking forward to equipping CARE Pharmacies with the right tools and resources to support them in their goal to be the recognized leaders in providing clinical care services in their local communities.”
