MLC conference

PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Enclara
Pharmacia
(Enclara), the market leader in comprehensive pharmacy
benefits management (PBM) services to the hospice community, announces a
strategic partnership with Medline,
a leading global medical supplies distributor and manufacturer. The
strategic partnership provides Enclara E3 Mobile™ users the
ability to order medical supplies for direct-to-patient shipping from
Medline. The integration of Medline into the E3 Mobile
solution represents the next phase of clinical service line integration,
now providing a single point of entry that enables hospice nurses to
order, track, and manage pharmacy, medical supplies, and durable medical
equipment (DME).


Enclara will showcase this new feature and the entire suite of E3
Mobile capabilities at the NHPCO
MLC conference
, April 23-24, 2018,
Washington Hilton, Washington, District of Columbia.

“The integration of Medline within E3 Mobile provides
hospices with an unrivaled platform to transform patient management,
optimize workforce productivity, and manage costs,” says Andy Horowitz,
CEO, Enclara. “We are responding to the hospice community need to
identify variances in clinical practice and cost, providing users with
an expanded solution that offers increased visibility into clinical
ordering. Our partnership with Medline not only meets this need, but
also provides hospice organizations with a unified view of patient cost
of care.”

E3 Mobile transmits orders directly to Medline fulfillment to
allow for rapid direct-to-patient delivery of medical supplies, which
results in decreased labor and delivery cost vs. central supply models.
The solution streamlines processes, optimizes clinical workflow and
enables hospice staff to seamlessly manage their patient needs. It’s a
simpler, faster solution with an intuitive design that not only helps
save nurse time by eliminating redundant entry, but also integrates with
the hospice EMR to ensure consistent patient records across systems.

“We are very excited about our strategic partnership with Enclara.
Medline is committed to delivering solutions that improve quality and
decrease cost for our hospice customers,” says Chris Nave, senior vice
president of sales for the homecare division at Medline. “We believe
this partnership will accomplish those goals, and further solidify our
respective organizations as market leaders and as innovators.”
