MOORESTOWN, N.J. and HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., May 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc. (NASDAQ:TRHC), a healthcare technology company disrupting the field of medication safety, has licensed the use of its medication risk mitigation platform, MedWise Advisor®, to Landmark, a leading national medical group focused exclusively on the most chronically ill patients.
TRHC Chairman and CEO, Calvin H. Knowlton, PhD, commented, “We look forward to this new partnership with Landmark. This marks the first time Tabula Rasa will license the use of its platform for other clinicians to use in improving therapeutic outcomes. The new application of our solution further proves the flexibility of MedWise Advisor®, and provides a model to address the demand in our pipeline.
“This partnership will allow us to expand our services to new and broader markets where we will not only be able to counteract one of the most avoidable causes of death and unintended medical injuries, but also continue to deliver on our goal of improving patient outcomes and lowering costs by reducing the occurrence of adverse drug events.”
Landmark is teaming up with TRHC to deploy the MedWise Advisor® platform, allowing Landmark clinicians to identify opportunities to improve the safety of their members’ medication profiles. TRHC’s pharmacist-staffed call centers also will provide “as-needed” clinical support to Landmark’s clinicians. The first phase of the program will be launched by Landmark in two of its markets, California and New York.
“Tabula Rasa’s mission clearly aligns with ours,” said Landmark’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Michael Le. “Our patients are often on many different medications with the potential for complex interactions and unintended risk. Our Phase One engagement with Tabula Rasa will allow us to proactively identify patients with elevated risk profiles, and more importantly, enable our clinical staff to intervene and improve the patient’s medication regimen before any incident occurs.”
Dr. Le continued, “The ultimate goal of our collaboration is to use Tabula Rasa’s medication decision support tools to help reduce unnecessary hospitalizations and visits to the emergency room within our population, and to keep our patients healthier, with improved quality of life, at home.”
