URAC conducted an extensive review evaluating more than 400 standards at Medco's Franklin Lakes, N.J., headquarters, as well individual call centers and the Medco Therapeutic Resource Centers® (TRCs). URAC surveyors evaluated a range of services such as Medco's RationalMed® patient safety system and its drug utilization review system. Medco's DTM programs include the TRCs – which provides access to Medco Specialist Pharmacists who are trained in helping patients with specific chronic and complex conditions – as well as the company's call center and front-end pharmacies.

Medco Specialist Pharmacists are changing the practice of pharmacy in the TRCs by offering patients with chronic diseases – such as asthma, diabetes, cancer, HIV, depression, cardiovascular disease or high cholesterol – focused and personalized care that is specific to their condition.  Medco's research subsidiary, the Medco Research Institute™, is presenting and publishing data that demonstrates how specialized and personalized pharmacy intervention can help identify potential issues and improve outcomes for patients managing a chronic condition.

"Medco is leading a mission to make medicine smarter by advancing the field of pharmacy on multiple fronts.  We are focused on advancing the skills of our clinicians, on leveraging technology
