Kerr evaluated a number of MTM platforms to support the grant initiative. Central to the decision to partner with Mirixa was the robustness of the MirixaEdge application functionality.  Rebecca W. Chater, RPh, MPH, FAPhA, Executive Vice President for Kerr Drug feels the MirixaEdge software with its programmatic approach to chronic disease management is in alignment with Kerr's focus on developing new clinical services. "In order to ensure consistency of clinical service delivery across our pharmacies, we need a tool like MirixaEdge to provide the framework for guiding an interactive discussion between the pharmacist and the patient. The MirixaEdge application has the right level of structure, along with disease-specific inquiries, that will be of great benefit to our customers and staff."  

Kerr Drug will utilize the Mirixa technology to track the progress of employee medication regimens, to provide patient educational information, and to report on outcomes achieved through MTM service delivery. Kerr has established itself as a leader in providing pharmacist-supervised patient care services and this grant will help Kerr to further measure the reach of its programs.

Tony Civello, President & CEO of Kerr Drug views this initiative as another example of Kerr's drive to provide patients, health plans and the medical community with the most comprehensive and convenient health and wellness programs. "Our mission is to position the role of the pharmacist and the pharmacy as more than just a dispensing function. Pharmacists have extensive clinical knowledge that should be leveraged by patients to better understand their medications and how to take them. The MirixaEdge application will help us capture and ultimately measure the value our patients are receiving."

Mirixa is pleased to be joining forces with Kerr Drug in helping to improve the health of the employees of the City of Charleston and the Charleston Water Works. Rick Solano, CEO of Mirixa explains, "Kerr looked extensively at technology partners for this project and we are delighted with their selection of MirixaEdge. Kerr stores will join other forward- looking pharmacies that are using MirixaEdge as part of a patient-centric disease management program."
