BETHLEHEM TWP, Pa. (7/30/2015) —   St. Luke’s University Health Network has entered into an agreement with CVS Health to  enhance patient care and community wellness in the region. The affiliation allows for the clinical collaboration with CVS/pharmacy and MinuteClinic, the retail clinic inside many CVS/pharmacy locations.

 

To help patients coordinate care between physicians and pharmacy care services, CVS/pharmacy and MinuteClinic will provide St. Luke’s with prescription and visit information through secured integration of electronic health records (EHR) with the patient’s consent. The affiliation with CVS Health aims to ultimately improve patient adherence to their medications and patient health outcomes through better coordination of care.

 

“Prescription management can be a challenge for many patients – especially those with chronic diseases and who may be prescribed multiple medications,” said Jeffrey A. Jahre, MD, Senior Vice President for Medical Affairs, St. Luke’s University Heath Network.   “There are many common conditions where a single missed dose may negatively affect patients. Among these are diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, depression, clotting disorders or asthma. Overall, patients fare much better when medications are taken as directed, and now we’ll have better insight on whether or not a patient is taking their medications as prescribed.”

As patient’s preferences for where and how they seek health care continue to evolve, St. Luke’s will continue to identify opportunities to ensure that high-quality, cost-effective care is well coordinated, regardless of where it is delivered.  This commitment will ultimately result in a healthier community.
