CVS Caremark and Inverness Medical Innovations Launch Strategic Alliance to Provide Enhanced Health Management Services to Clients
Date:8/4/2009

ustomers," said Dr. Troyen Brennan, Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of CVS Caremark. "Our patients gain access to Alere's expanded suite of services, such as wellness, prevention and health management programs. These also include programs tailored to meet the needs of women and children. Alere's customers will benefit from direct access to our nurse practitioners at MinuteClinic and CVS pharmacists at our retail stores."

Recent studies have shown participants benefit from management of more serious illnesses through face-to-face interaction with health care providers. CVS Caremark has integrated retail pharmacy, pharmacy benefit management and the retail clinic businesses and developed Proactive Pharmacy Care to take advantage of the unmatched consumer touch points provided through its stores and clinics.

"This strategic alliance creates a first in the health management space, a more direct connection for participants between proven health management programs and their trusted providers in CVS pharmacies," said Ron Geraty, CEO of Alere. "This extends our reach, offering even more face-to-face and personalized services while at the same time allowing us to develop a close working relationship with the largest pharmacy health care company in the U.S."

This alliance will allow for more timely, coordinated and personalized disease management, by improving communications. For example, if an Alere nurse identifies a patient with heart disease who is not taking medications as prescribed, or who is not taking medicine for a common co-morbid condition, the nurse will communicate that gap in care to a retail CVS pharmacist or MinuteClinic nurse practitioner, when the patient is scheduled to pick up a prescription or needs a test or screening at a clinic. The patient will be counseled to take action to improve their care by the appropriate provider.
