Date:4/14/2008

NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Denise Kehoe has joined medication therapy management (MTM) company PharmMD as vice president of business development. In her new role, she will manage and oversee the expansion of the company's growing base of clients across the country.

Kehoe brings more than 15 years of clinical pharmacy, research and operations experience to PharmMD. She recently served as national strategic executive of managed care sales and contracting for Walgreens after holding positions with the company as a multi-site pharmacy manager, faculty practitioner, regional clinical manager and regional vice president. Prior to more than a decade with Walgreens, Kehoe was a relief pharmacist at the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, N.M, and a research assistant for the Los Alamos National Laboratories Human Genome Project conducted at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center in Albuquerque.

PharmMD prevents medication-related health problems through the application of the best pharmacist and physician knowledge. The company works with employers and payers to help ensure that beneficiaries are receiving the most appropriate medications. Founded in 2006, PharmMD improves coordination and communication among physicians, pharmacists, payers and patients by analyzing pharmacy and medical claims information and clinical decision making. Because PharmMD focuses exclusively on MTM, the company is able to analyze both aggregate and patient-specific data to identify trends and conflicts to positively impact patient health and contain costs.

Kehoe is active in the leadership of several influential trade organizations. She participated on an American Pharmacists Association (APhA) strategic planning committee and is currently serving a two-year term as chair of specialized pharmacy for the APhA Academy of Pharmacy Practice Management. She received APhA fellowship honors in 2007. Kehoe is also currently serving on the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) Community Pharmacy Outreach Task Force. She is involved with the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) and recently spoke and moderated at the 2007 Medication Therapy Management Services in Community Pharmacy conference, which was jointly hosted by the NACDS and APhA. Kehoe also served as the president of the New Mexico Pharmacists Association where she was instrumental in implementing policies expanding the clinical practice role of pharmacists. Kehoe actively participates with collaborative healthcare initiatives promoting pharmacists as the medication experts.

"With her expert understanding of the clinical and operational delivery of pharmaceutical services and her passion for improving the health of individual patients, Denise will help develop and expand the customizable, personalized MTM services offered by PharmMD on a national level," said Bo Bartholomew, co- founder and chief executive officer of PharmMD.

Kehoe earned her bachelor's degree in pharmacy from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque in 1992 and a master's of business administration from the University of Phoenix in Albuquerque in 1999. She later served as a member

of the dean's executive advisory board for the University of New Mexico College of Pharmacy.

"Medication error, misuse and abuse are pressing issues in today's healthcare environment, and the forward-thinking leaders at PharmMD are dedicated to the true purpose of medication therapy management - improving the quality of life for individual patients through improved medication usage," said Kehoe. "I am excited to join the company in working towards this worthwhile goal."
