Since its start-up in 2011, CareKinesis has grown over 100% year after year, now servicing over 50 PACE centers in 17 States.PACE, in some states known as Living Independence for Elders (LIFE), provides comprehensive, community-based, long-term care services and support to Medicaid and Medicare enrollees. An interdisciplinary team of health professionals provides individuals with coordinated care, including medication management. For most participants, the comprehensive service package enables them to receive care at home rather than in a nursing home.PACE/LIFE organizations nationwide rely on CareKinesis to personalize medication selection, and increase medication adherence, resulting in reduced participant hospitalizations and recidivism. CareKinesis accomplishes this through expert clinical pharmacist support, EireneRx® Medication Risk Mitigation platform, custom adherence medication packaging, and flexible medication access options.

“We are proud and excited to welcome our newest PACE clients to the outcomes-focused services of CareKinesis,” said CEO Knowlton. “Our goal is to consistently reduce medication-related risk while documenting improved economic, clinical, and humanistic outcomes.”

According to client Susie Fishenfeld, RN, MSN, Executive Director, Brandman Centers for Senior Care, Reseda, CA, “Working with our new partner, CareKinesis, I believe our participants’ medication adherence, medication education, and overall health and wellness, will be enhanced.”
