PITTSBURGH, PA, SEPTEMBER 14, 2020
Grane Rx (https://granerx.com)–the leader in PACE pharmacy services and solutions–is proud to announce its newly formed strategic relationship with Innovative Integrated Health (IIH). IIH selected Grane Rx as its official pharmacy provider to meet the growing needs of its PACE program. Beginning October 1, 2020, Grane Rx will transition in as IIH’s end-to-end pharmacy provider, serving its centers in Fresno, Kern and Tulare counties.
“In choosing a new pharmacy provider, we were looking for a partner that could meet our growth and handle the volume. Our plan is to grow to 3,000 participants by the end of 2022, shared Sharon Melancon, PACE VP of operations for IIH. “We also wanted a partner with PACE expertise–a pharmacy who had operated in the PACE program before.”
“What really stood out to us in vetting a pharmacy partner was Grane Rx’s reporting and data analytics. We were impressed with their medication adherence focused packaging and literacy for participants. The overall pharmacy solution from Grane Rx made Grane Rx an easy choice for us,” said Melancon.
Among the benefits of transitioning to Grane Rx, IIH will no longer have to handle participant medications. Medication delivery will shift to Grane Rx’s White Glove Delivery program freeing up valuable IIH staff time and resources.
“Not having to deliver medications is huge for us. It’s a game changer because it frees up our transportation so we can better serve our participants,” said Steve Seita, IIH Director of Business Development for PACE.
“We’re very pleased to have the opportunity to serve Innovative Integrated Health and support their growth plans. Grane Rx has the capacity and experience to meet IIH’s pharmacy needs now and into the future,” said Grane Rx CEO Bob Rowland.
IIH and Grane Rx are proud members of the National PACE Association (NPA) which can be found at https://www.npaonline.org. Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE®) is a comprehensive, fully integrated, provider based health plan for those who require a nursing home level of care. NPA works to advance the efforts of PACE so older individuals can continue living in their community.
