TORONTO and MARKHAM, Ontario, Aug. 22, 2016 /CNW/ -- Kroll Computer Systems Inc., providing software solutions serving over 4,000 pharmacies including, pharmacy chains and independents, institutions, and long term care facilities, and Ateb® Canada Ltd., the industry's leading provider of pharmacy-based patient care solutions can now offer their partners real-time data feeds via the interface with the Time My Meds solution.
For almost twenty years, Ateb's Pharmacy Line® Interactive Voice Response (IVR) has been seamlessly integrated within the Kroll network. This latest development will enhance Kroll's technical partnership and offerings with the addition of Ateb Canada's Time My Meds® medication synchronization solution and outbound patient communications.
With the right tools, pharmacy has a tremendous opportunity to expand their role in the era of value-driven health care. The addition of Time My Meds will drive script growth, reduce costs, such as fewer deliveries, partial fills and return to stocks, as well as improve workflow, thus affording pharmacists more time to provide patients with reimbursable services including medication reviews and immunizations. Patients will also benefit from improved adherence and more focused, value-added pharmacy consultations.
"Since there is a natural synergy between both technology companies to improve pharmacy workflow, we are excited about the opportunity to expand our existing relationship and activate more solutions within the Kroll pharmacy software network," stated Frank Sheppard, President and CEO of Ateb Canada. "By leveraging Ateb Canada's predictive analytics and data integration, our intuitive platform enables pharmacy partners to reinforce positive patient behaviors, drive patient medication adherence, and provide them with a strategic, sustainable program," added Sheppard.
Furthermore, Ateb Canada's Outbound Notifications solution improves pharmacy performance by driving script growth, reducing return to stocks, and improving patient adherence through automated patient outreach methods. Based on the patient's preference, these notifications, displayed in real-time, are delivered via calls, text messages, emails, and mobile app.
Kroll will continue to support Pharmacy Line Interactive Voice Response (IVR) which answers calls into the pharmacy any time of the day in a professional and consistent manner. By increasing patient access to the pharmacy 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week, pharmacies can automate refill requests and have the ability to play pharmacy recorded greetings, special messages, and holiday hours.
To support its Canadian retail partners and protect patient data, Ateb Canada built out its capabilities using a Tier 3 data center in Markham to ensure all patient data securely resides in Canada.
