Technology at an Advanced PACE Progressive provider programs like PACE require advanced technologies and processes that integrate seamlessly with the PACE Program clinical systems. Yet with more than 1,000 participants throughout Pennsylvania served by Grane Rx’s PACE pharmacy solutions, there was pressure from its diverse customer base to meet them technologically where participants reside. Bob Rowland, SVP and COO of Grane Rx, speaks to Grane’s ability to respond, “Grane Rx PACE pharmacy solutions is focused on providing real-time information to enable our customers (long-term care communities) to do a better job of providing care for their residents. Since long-term care facilities have multiple EHR or eMAR platforms, varying staffing levels and other needs, Grane Rx dedicated time and resources to creating interoperability between customer EHR systems, CPOE medication order systems, and eMAR medication administration systems to synchronize resident patient information via ADT.” Traditionally, pharmacy solutions within long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) and senior living providers have been considered advanced if they used technology-enabled services. Examples include employing geriatric pharmacists to provide a full clinical care summary of each resident, reducing adverse drug events through decision support and alerting or dispensing medications via automated cabinets. Grane Rx provides those services as they are pioneers in their creation. But in defining the future, Grane Rx’s investment in full interoperability between its internal systems and their customers’ external systems allows for complete automation of medication safety, in real- time, across each point in the value chain.
