“We have been thrilled with the results we have seen from partnering with CareKinesis,” said Ann Kjosa, Executive Vice President of Rocky Mountain Health Care Services. “CareKinesis services have had a direct impact on our participant care. Our team works closely with their clinical pharmacy team to customize medication regimens, and this individualized approach has led to improved outcomes for our participants and our program. Indeed, CareKinesis’ support has been integral as our program has grown. Our collaboration and their PACE-specific pharmacy services will be key as we plan for continued growth and expansion of PACE in our community.”
RMP implemented CareKinesis’ personalized medication management and pharmacy services in 2018.
“We are pleased Rocky Mountain PACE is continuing this long-term partnership,” said TRHC President Orsula V.
