St. Louis (April 15, 2019) - Intalere, the healthcare industry leader in delivering optimal cost, quality and clinical outcomes, today announced an exclusive partnership with Enclara Pharmacia (Enclara), a national full-service pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) and mail order supplier of medications and clinical services developed specifically for the hospice and palliative care industry.
“Through our dedicated hospice program, we have identified market-leading partners, products and services specifically geared to the hospice market,” says Stacey Winston, vice president of program management for Intalere. “The Enclara program was designed as a comprehensive hospice pharmacy services offering that truly meets their specific market needs.”
This initiative was made possible through the guidance and support of CarePartners, Intalere’s group purchasing collaborator in the hospice space. Rhonda White, COO of Care Partners, LLC & Cornerstone Hospice, adds, “This partnership of three very distinct industry leading organizations truly complements the vision of CarePartners, which is built by hospice providers for hospice providers.”
Enclara’s differentiated benefits include:
- Medication Access – Immediate access through a community pharmacy network with courier delivery options, automated dispensing systems for IPUs, in addition to their own mail order pharmacy offering cost effective next-day delivery nationwide of all oral, topical and compounded medications.
- Technology Innovation – E3 Mobile™ patient management hub, ePrescribing, EMR integrations, actionable BI reporting and management, and informatics/dashboard reporting.
- Clinical Support – Hospice and palliative care pharmacists and technicians accessible 24/7 to support patient care needs with clinical tools, references and documentation resources.
- Customer Service – Dedicated clinicians and professionals offering a personal touch to serve patients’ needs—available 24/7.
Andy Horowitz, CEO, Enclara, says, “Our partnership with Intalere demonstrates our ongoing commitment to provide the hospice community with access to the key clinical, medication and technology services needed to deliver the highest quality patient care. Our ability to continually deliver innovative solutions that improve both operational and clinical efficiency creates immense value for our hospice partners in ways that are unmatched in the market.”
