Kroger Health & AssureCare® Implement Patient-Centric Integrated Care Platform for Payers, Providers, and Pharmacies

The AssureCare platform will serve the lives of 14+ million patients managed by The Kroger Co.’s pharmacists and dietitians across 2200+ community pharmacy locations, and centralized clinical pharmacies

CINCINNATI, Aug. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AssureCare announces the implementation of an industry leading patient-centric, highly configurable, connected care and medication management platform, MedCompass® with Kroger Health, enabling greater access to pharmacists and their services, while better serving their patients.

Built on AssureCare’s core connected platform, MedCompass provides unparalleled medication management and adherence capabilities reducing medication risk and increasing the quality of care provided by the pharmacy. Kroger Health collaborated with AssureCare, to support the expansion of Kroger Health clinical services and the integration of community pharmacy and dietitian services. The AssureCare platform merged with Kroger’s pharmacy dispensing system to create a seamless experience for providers, increase access to health information, and enhance the quality of care delivered. Additionally, the integration of Kroger’s “food as medicine” component enables a more holistic view of a patient’s overall health and wellness journey.

AssureCare’s portfolio of industry leading population health management solutions provide unique and unrivaled capabilities for pharmacies, payers and providers enabling a focus on value-based care. Kroger will leverage a wide range of services including medication reviews and adherence, gaps in care closure, chronic disease management, targeting analytics, dietitian workflow management, clinical visit support, and provider portal communication.

“Healthcare delivery is very disconnected in this country. The AssureCare platform can change this by connecting patients, providers, and health insurers,” said Colleen Lindholz, President of Kroger Health. “It allows our teams to deliver industry leading clinical services by combining data assets from multiple sources to deliver the right care to the right patient at the right time.”

“We thank Kroger Health for their trust, commitment, collaboration and shared vision. The work Kroger Health and AssureCare have achieved together is crucial to increasing the responsibilities of pharmacists in healthcare which greatly improves overall population health,” Yousuf J. Ahmad, DrPH, MBA, MHSA, FACHE, President & CEO of AssureCare. “AssureCare’s industry leading connected care solutions empower organizations like Kroger Health to dramatically improve their value-based services and improve an individual’s overall healthcare journey,” Dr. Ahmad added.
