MOORESTOWN, N.J., Oct. 22, 2018 — Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc. (TRHC) (NASDAQ: TRHC), a healthcare technology company advancing the field of medication safety, is participating in the 2018 NPA (National PACE Association) conference being held in Portland, OR, October 21-24, 2018.
“The NPA Annual Conference is a great opportunity for us to spend time with our PACE clients from around the country,” stated TRHC President Orsula V. Knowlton, PharmD, MBA. “We educate, we learn, we enjoy networking and return to our respective work energized to do even more to assure medication safety and better healthcare outcomes.”
PACE is the federal Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, a Medicare and Medicaid benefit for individuals 55 and older who are nursing home eligible. The goal of the program is to keep participants living in their own homes while receiving quality care. PACE organizations nationwide rely on TRHC technology, science, and pharmacists who are board certified in geriatrics to improve medication safety, improve adherence, and reduce participant hospitalizations.
TRHC hosted a PACE education and networking event, Portland Uncorked!, Sunday, October 21, at which TRHC Chairman and CEO, Calvin H. Knowlton, PhD, unveiled the recently launched TRHC division CareVention HealthCare. According to Dr. Knowlton, “With this PACE platform our goal is to help our clients compete on analytics.” CareVention HealthCare was created to help optimize care and in response to NPA’s PACE 2.0, an initiative to accelerate PACE growth. CareVention HealthCare will offer integrated platform technology for PACE organizations, including data analytics, consulting, and other services for PACE.
At the NPA conference, team members from TRHC subsidiary companies, CareKinesis and Capstone Performance Systems, will participate in the following Educational Sessions:
Polypharmacy – How to Reduce Medication Risk

Using Novel Risk Stratification and a System for Medication Risk Scoring of PACE Participants to Reduce Preventable Adverse Drug Events
