I used to dread having to wait in line to pick up my medication every month. Often times I felt rushed and unable to ask questions about how to take my medication properly and any possible side effects.

A SUPERIOR HEALTHCARE JOURNEY

Partnering with Curant Health allows health system organizations to extend the reach of care they provide to their patients at no extra cost. Curant Health is singularly focused on providing a superior healthcare journey, and our patient retention rates and clinically proven superior outcomes are testaments to the unmatched patient experience we provide. And while our focus is on the patient journey, we have not lost sight of the fact that 18 of 33 ACO Quality of Care metrics as established by CMS depend on appropriate medication use to achieve healthcare goals.1

Our integrated medication management services include clinical teams of pharmacy professionals and dedicated patient care professionals. We partner with providers and medical specialists to implement and track individually developed medication therapy programs while providing high-touch patient support, education and coaching.

POSITIVE PATIENT OUTCOMES

A recent HealthCare Partners study on transitions of care after hospitalization showed that 30% of patient medications required reconciliation.2 Our medication management services include reconciliation and patient education, and they are proven to deliver better VTVV outcomes and to reduce hospital readmissions. In a 2012 nationwide study with Purdue University and Amedisys, Curant Health’s services were proven to reduce 30-day hospital readmission rates by an average of 60% for the top three quartiles of study patients.
