OnePoint Patient Care, an industry leader in local hospice pharmacy, e-prescribing technologies and pharmacy benefits management solutions, announced plans to open a new hospice-dedicated pharmacy in Newark.
Anticipated to open in the first quarter of 2020, the pharmacy is part of OnePoint’s national expansion of its local pharmacy model with the ability to serve hospice patients throughout the Delaware Valley.
“We understand how challenging it can be for hospices in many markets to find a reliable supply of medications. We’re excited to introduce our local dispensing services to Newark and the surrounding region in order to help our hospice partners serve their patients even more efficiently and compassionately,” said Jeffrey Hohl, OnePoint Patient Care CEO.
OnePoint’s unmatched local presence, extensive inventory of hospice medications and local service capabilities provide innovative, service-centric hospices with a true local hospice pharmacy to fill all their patients’ medication needs, including same-day and STAT delivery. OnePoint’s experienced pharmacists specialize in hospice care, providing 24-hour clinical advice, custom medication compounding and therapeutic recommendations.
The OneConnectPoint medication management application also makes patient medication fulfillment and e-prescribing easier than ever for busy hospice clinicians on the go.
In response to growing demand by hospices nationwide for its local dedicated hospice pharmacy model, OnePoint plans to add pharmacies in the Eastern U.S. and Midwest in 2020, in addition to the pharmacy in Newark.
Together with OnePoint’s national network of more than 65,000 locally contracted pharmacies, OnePoint’s dedicated Hospice Pharmacy Centers of Excellence ensure patients timely access to medication whenever and wherever they need it.
“Delaware Hospice has an exemplary 37-year service reputation for providing exceptional end-of-life care to patients throughout the entire state of Delaware and part of Pennsylvania. As the hospice and palliative care industry continues to evolve at an unprecedented pace, Delaware Hospice requires a pharmacy partner that can advance our mission of service quality using the most advanced technologies, clinical experience and service delivery responsiveness. OnePoint Patient Care is the ideal extension of our own service and brand,” said Michelle Burris, Delaware Hospice CFO.
