In the healthcare industry, the problem of patients taking medications as prescribed represents a multi-faceted dilemma. Lack of adherence causes patients to suffer, burdens emergency services to the tune of millions, and disrupts prescription fulfillment by pharmacies which equal substantial losses of revenue. In the current scenario, everyone loses.
The ultimate adherence solution works because it involves the full circle-of-care, engaging pharmacist and patient to improve outcomes - something we've coined the adherence ecosystem. Catalyst Healthcare’s collaboration with leading technology providers is a game changer. For example, McKesson Canada’s PACMED® D is a mini-packager embedded with Catalyst's AdhereNet™ pharmacy software platform, allowing pharmacists to fill prescriptions using best-in-class packaging technology, then track that packaging to any patient, anywhere. Our smartphone app, MyMedTimes™, and in-home dispenser, spencer™, alert patients to take their medication on time and as prescribed.
Patients: First and foremost, better medication adherence results in improved health and well-being of patients.
Pharmacies: Initial affordability and compact hardware lose their appeal if you can’t handle future growth. Catalyst has you covered with a medication adherence solution that scales from one to tens of thousands of patients. Seamless integration with Central Fills, nursing home software oneMAR®, and home medication solutions MyMedTimes™ and spencer™ means that your pharmacy can easily scale to meet new opportunities.
Insurance Providers: Catalyst's solution improves quality, efficiency, and safety across the medication delivery ecosystem. Full chain of custody, plus tracking of lot numbers and expiry dates from wholesaler through to patient is achievable. Proprietary bar-code scanning technology that tracks meds to the dose level. The end result? Wide-scale availability of consumer-based adherence tools that improve health and decrease costs.
Healthcare Industry: The American Pharmacists Association Foundation reports that medication non-adherence accounts for 10% to 25% of hospital and nursing home admissions annually. Millions of dollars are saved with large-scale adoption of safe, connected technology.
Catalyst AdhereNet™ is a pharmacy software platform built to improve patient medication adherence. It's a scalable solution that increases quality and efficiency at every point across the medication delivery ecosystem.
Integrated. Scalable. Everyone wins with better medication adherence.
Catalyst’s flagship software for Pharmacies, AdhereNet™ is the hub that connects everything in real-time through the cloud for true pharmacist to patient interaction. Installed on a local server or pre-installed on PACMED® D packaging hardware, options exist for affordable starts-ups with fantastic scalability.
Fully automated central fills contract with a network of pharmacy customers who are using Catalyst's AdhereNet platform and act as the pharmacy of record, perform order entry and deliver completed product to their customers. By separating packaging fulfillment from clinical services, CentralFill fuels a cost-effective and rapidly scalable adherence model.
Long-term care facilities and nursing homes use Catalyst’s oneMAR® for electronic medication administration records. Nursing staff enjoy the flexibility of using a desktop or tablet, with live connectivity to their local pharmacy, and numerous partner integrations to do even more.
In-home individual medication dispensing unit that’s easy to use, and surprisingly intelligent. Automatically dispensing the right dose at the right time, spencer also improves adherence by collecting patient feedback and biometric data, closing the loop between patient and care givers.
As the only mobile app on the market that’s fully integrated with pharmacy workflow, people benefit from an adherence tool that’s simple, secure and connected. Thanks to MyMedTimes, people can take their medications as prescribed — putting a stop to errors and helping them to stay active and independent at home.
