Five New Hospice Partners Select OnePoint Patient Care for Its Local Medication Dispensing and Delivery Services

OnePoint's Local Model Provides Hospices Quicker Delivery, Better Customized Service and a Higher Level of Responsiveness

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Apr 12, 2013) - OnePoint Patient Care, a national hospice pharmacy services provider, announced today that it has recently begun providing its local medication dispensing and delivery services to five new hospice partners. In addition, these hospices have selected OnePoint as their Pharmacy Benefits Manager (PBM) to manage their custom formularies. OnePoint has continued to expand its local pharmacy dispensing and delivery services to more than 20,000 hospice patients across the United States.

The five new hospices that have selected OnePoint's local dispensing and delivery model over their previous mail-order prescription service are:

  • Home Bound Hospice (Lemont, Ill.)
  • Serenity Hospice (Oregon, Ill.)
  • Illinois Valley Hospice (Peru, Ill.)
  • New Hope Hospice (Marion, Ind., and Indianapolis, Ind.)
  • Hospice of the Rock River Valley (Dixon, Ill.)

OnePoint's local dispensing and delivery model ensures hospice patients receive their medications the same day or next day. This allows hospices to be more responsive to individual patient needs. Through its hospice PBM services, OnePoint also provides fully customized cost containment measures and hospice-specific formulary management programs.

"We are extremely pleased with the many benefits OnePoint's prompt local dispensing and delivery provide," said Carolyn Spencer, executive director of Hospice of the Rock River Valley. "Previously, it took two to three days for our patients to receive their medications, but with OnePoint providing them the next day, we have greatly enhanced our ability to provide patients with life-limiting illnesses the comfort and compassionate care that they need. We have also found having OnePoint as a local partner means more personal service and a much higher level of responsiveness."
