  • Orange County, CA (1888PressRelease) August 23, 2013 - PrescribeWellness today announced a partnership with American Associated Pharmacies (AAP), a member-owned cooperative comprised of over 2,000 independent pharmacists, to improve patient compliance through education and personalized communication outreach.

    "Independent pharmacies often serve as a center for wellness in their community, so it's important we provide them with the software and services they need to compete with the chain and big box retailers," said Tony Thuyen, PrescribeWellness co-founder and CMO. "As the healthcare system shifts its focus towards preventive health, it's critical independent pharmacists build better patient relationships, focusing on adherence and chronic disease management. Using the right technology-driven tools can help them build those relationships and get patients engaged in their own healthcare."

    PrescribeWellness' software and services are designed to make it easier for retail pharmacies to help their patients improve medication adherence and more effectively manage their chronic disease. It is estimated that lack of medication adherence costs the American healthcare system nearly $300 billion annually, or 10 percent of total healthcare costs.

    "Being able to address adherence and build stronger relationships with my patients are keys to staying relevant with the healthcare changes," said I.R. Patel, PharmD, BiRite Pharmacy, an AAP member. "PrescribeWellness provides the solution without interrupting my workflow. The key is using my voice to personally connect to each customer, delivering old-fashioned customer service with the help of modern technology."

    LinkWellness, PrescribeWellness' pharmacy solution, addresses all obstacles to adherence with its trusted "Voice of Authority," which delivers the right message at the right time, in the right language, through the right channel and in the actual voice of the independent neighborhood pharmacist, gaining the 'personal touch' advantage.

    Participating AAP member pharmacies can now sign up for PrescribeWellness' services, which include a free listing on, the company's wellness campaign portal that encourages consumers to take preventive healthcare steps with their local pharmacies.
