Enclara Pharmacia will emerge at the NHPCO MLC meeting with a new look, as well as an enhanced service offering that will change the hospice pharmacy landscape.
Enhanced PBM Model Leverages Nationwide Mail Order Fulfillment Capabilities
Philadelphia, PA April 28, 2015 – Widely recognized as the founder, and industry’s leading provider of comprehensive hospice mail order pharmacy and clinical services, Enclara Pharmacia, through its vast nationwide network of local pharmacies and wholly-owned PBM provider, also offers traditional PBM pharmacy access for those customers seeking a local pharmacy solution. Recognizing that mail order fulfillment is a primary differentiator in the marketplace, as well as capitalizing on their best in class pricing, Enclara Pharmacia is coming to market with an offering that utilizes their mail order pharmacy fulfillment centers, with next day standard shipping, as a pharmacy option under its PBM Network, at no additional cost to its customer base. PBM clients will have visibility to network pharmacy reimbursement, allowing full transparency and “pass through” of cost, with extremely competitive administration fees that are easy to understand and, unlike some competitive offerings, are based solely on utilization.
“This offering will change our position in the marketplace. With overnight delivery, we can have the package to the patient’s door, diminishing courier costs and delivery fees that are often incurred at the local pharmacy when patients and families cannot pick up their own drugs. Our very strong buying power yields better pricing for our clients and we can become a fulfillment arm for our own PBM and deliver those packages with next day standard shipping, at no additional cost, streamlining nursing efficiencies with CII processing, and controlling overall costs for our customers,” stated Deanna Douglass, PharmD, SVP of Sales.
Enclara Pharmacia’s Hospice Executive Business Summit will “kick-off” the NHPCO Management Leadership Conference by bringing together key opinion leaders to discuss industry trends.
Enclara Pharmacia will open the NHPCO Management Leadership Conference in National Harbor, MD by hosting an Executive Business Summit on Wednesday evening, April 29, 2015. Speakers and panelists will include Nancy-Ann DeParle and Benjamin Edmands (Consonance Capital Partners), Mark E. Miller, Ph.D. (MedPAC), Laurence Wilson (CMS), Todd M. Abbrecht (Thomas H. Lee Partners), Kent Anderson (Hospice of Dayton), and James Deal (Hospice Compassus). The agenda includes discussion of topics of critical and timely importance for the hospice industry, such as Payment Models for 2015 and Beyond, as well as Hospice Consolidation and Collaboration. Andy Horowitz, Chief Executive Officer of Enclara Pharmacia, said, “We are excited to lead the discussion on these important topics that impact our clients and the industry at large. In fact, many on our management team have long and deep roots in the hospice industry. We have stood in your shoes and understand what you expect from your pharmacy partner. As such, we are very excited to host the Executive Business Summit, as well as to have the opportunity to launch an enhanced service offering that, we believe, will radically change the hospice pharmacy benefits management (PBM) landscape.”
