MedVantx Launches Patient Profile™, A Proprietary Closed-Loop Pharmaceutical Adherence Management Program for Medical Home, Accountable Care and Population Health Management

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MedVantx, Inc., today announced the deployment of its patent pending Patient Profile™ patient medication and adherence reporting engine across its network of 3,600 high prescribing primary care providers participating in the Company's integrated program of initial free medication therapy, adherence management and home delivery program. This new program utilizes the Company's proprietary automated ATM like sample management system ("MedStart") and an integrated secure web reporting portal to provide physicians visibility to their patients' adherence to chronic medication therapy.  The Platform is designed to help leading medical groups meet the requirements of emerging healthcare reform platforms.

Researchers at Harvard University, Brigham and Women's Hospital and CVS/Caremark announced the results of an important study last week indicating that up to 24% of consumers never fill their initial prescription. "While the results of this study are consistent with previous studies in the area, what is interesting is that prescription abandonment rates appear to be increasing with the growth in electronic prescribing," said Susan Hogue, VP of Managed Care Networks and Clinical Services at MedVantx.  "As Physicians embrace EHR and e-prescribing platforms, they need new tools to help insure medication therapy is initiated and adhered to on an ongoing basis.  Today, physicians have limited access to detailed data about medication samples provided and actual prescriptions filled.  MedVantx has pioneered a program that enables physicians to start all their patients on free prescription medications at the point of care thereby eliminating the potential for abandonment. As a result MedVantx is in a unique position to deliver a complete view of a specific patient's medication program from an initial medication sample to continued fulfillment of chronic medications."

MedVantx provides physicians with first ever access to a comprehensive formulary of free generic, brand, and over-the-counter medications covering chronic and complex conditions through its MedStart™ system. The MedStart™ system automates the traditional sampling process for the physician; captures physician sampling data for inclusion in the patients' claims history medical record and provides consumers access to highly relevant drug and disease state educational materials. Since patients don't always get prescriptions filled, physicians can enhance adherence by providing their patients with initial therapy and better informational tools to manage their conditions right from the office.  MedVantx also reaches out to patients to provide drug information, discuss adherence related issues and offer low-cost home delivery options.

Now with the availability of the MedVantx Patient Profile™, physicians are able to view data about how patients, on an individual basis, are complying with their prescribed medication treatments.  By showing exactly when a patient fills prescriptions, physicians can detect late refills, gaps in medication fulfillment, discontinued treatments and more to accurately access and improve patient compliance.
