Pharmacies, Patients Across North America to Benefit from Ultimate Medication Adherence Solution.
Catalyst Healthcare and McKesson Canada have announced a co-marketing and co-distribution agreement to deliver a full-service adherence solution for pharmacies by embedding AdhereNetTM (Catalyst’s pharmacy software platform) onto McKesson’s automation equipment. This collaboration empowers pharmacists with access to a cost-effective and scalable medication adherence solution for their patients; not only providing every pharmacy with access to advanced adherence packaging, but also enabling them to track the packaging to any patient, anywhere, and to alert patients to take their medication on-time and as-prescribed.
Catalyst’s software for pharmacies tracks the entire medication process, from harnessing the power of a fully automated central fill, to facility electronic medical record integration using oneMAR®. Now, completing the adherence circle are; MyMedTimes™ (a smart mobile app) and spencer® (an in-home dispenser). They are the only solutions that are fully integrated with pharmacy workflow for true pharmacy-to-patient adherence management. These solutions let patients know which medications to take and when, and the interactive pharmacy dashboard allows pharmacists to monitor outcomes and to intervene with communication if non-adherence becomes an issue. The dashboard also provides info and data which the pharmacy can provide to demonstrate they are tracking adherence and are managing patient compliance.
Pharmacies are facing increased pressure to ensure patients are maintaining medication regimes, and so the timing could not be better to combine Catalyst’s full suite of technology adherence solutions with McKesson Canada’s best-in-class adherence packaging technologies.

“The practice of pharmacy is changing in North America. Pharmacies are facing increased pressure to ensure patients are maintaining medication regimes, and so the timing could not be better to combine Catalyst’s full suite of technology adherence solutions with McKesson Canada’s best-in-class adherence packaging technologies,” said Shane Bishop, Catalyst Founder and CEO. “For the first time pharmacies will have real-time access to a patient’s medication schedule with the ability to promote adherence via live communication. At the same time the pharmacy will be empowered to provide evidence to pharmacy reimbursement providers that they have raised the bar as a healthcare provider.”
