August 10, 2016 – Atlanta, Georgia – Curant Health, provider of personalized medication management services, has formed a partnership with Louisiana Physicians ACO (LPACO), to deliver a coordinated, structured medication management program for selected Medicare patients
Initial program focus will be on patients with one or more of the following chronic conditions: diabetes, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), peripheral artery disease (PAD) or end stage renal disease (ESRD). Program participants will receive medication, dedicated care team support and 24/7 access to pharmacists. Eligible patients will also receive enhanced medication therapy management (MTM).
“We are excited to partner with Louisiana Physicians ACO, a leading ACO focused on delivering high quality care, to provide robust, personalized medication management services for our shared patients,” says Jake Caines, Director of Commercial Strategy and Performance. “We believe our proven success in removing barriers to medication adherence will lead to significant healthcare value in terms of better health outcomes for patients and cost savings for LPACO.”
"Curant Health's high touch patient model, designed to improve medication adherence, is an ideal solution to help us reduce the steadily increasing costs of managing our chronic disease patients,” says Dr. Joshua Lowentritt, President of Louisiana Physicians ACO. “Since lack of medication adherence is known to be a leading factor in hospital readmissions, partnering with Curant Health was an easy decision to make."
