Grane Rx to Launch New PACE Pharmacy Online Solution

Pittsburgh, July 30, 2014 — Grane Rx, a leading provider of pharmacy services to the long-term care and PACE industries, launched a new customer online solution in July 2014, according to Bob Rowland, Chief Operating Officer. True to its name, the new SimpleView system will make it fast and easy for our customers to access real-time clinical and financial information that support customer needs. “We’ve always used the best technology available to integrate with our customers, such as our SimpleAccess automated medication dispensing cabinets,” Rowland said. “SimpleView is the next, natural evolution in that commitment to our customers.” simpleview SimpleView was designed with customer requests in mind. “We received a lot of input and guidance from our long-term care and PACE customers, Rowland said. “Other PACE Pharmacy solutions are complicated and loaded with functions that customers rarely use. But our PACE Pharmacy makes information simple to access and its the information our customers want most.” Training is simple as well. “In less than 30 minutes, a customer can start tailoring and printing real-time reports themselves,” said Jen Devinney, PharmD., Clinical Consulting Director. “Customers have better things to do than spend a lot of time learning how to use new technologies. SimpleView is robust, but simple. So a customer can use it right off the bat.” For example, long-term care facilities use EHR (Electronic Health Record) systems to track critical patient information. But there are often gaps in the real-time information that these systems provide. SimpleView runs hand in hand with EHR systems and fills those gaps with the touch of a mouse. SimpleView is HIPAA compliant and tested, to ensure the security and privacy of resident information. SimpleView will launch in three phases to provide instant, 24/7 online access for PACE customers:

  1. Foundation functions: medication alerts; pharmacy communications; real-time reporting for billing, clinical, medical records, high-cost drugs, prescribing trends, audits and consulting.
  2. Deeper patient-focused functions: multi-lingual medication instructions, resident medication profile analyses, refill requests and change orders.
  3. Advanced functions: e-prescribing for controlled substances, customizable dashboards, analytics, trending, e-charting and drug cost estimates.
“We built SimpleView to help our customers meet the new lower cost and higher quality demands of long-term care,” Rowland said. “We’ll continually monitor customer outcomes to ensure they make the most of SimpleView. That’s what partnerships do.” Once SimpleView is available, long-term care facilities can schedule a demo by contacting Scott Sosso, Director of Business Development at Or call 412-449-0504.
