OnePoint Patient Care Opens Colorado's First Hospice-Dedicated Pharmacy

OnePoint Patient Care Becomes the First Hospice-Focused Pharmacy to Provide Colorado Hospices Local Medication Dispensing, Same-Day and STAT Delivery Along With Pharmacy Benefits Management Services

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - July 30, 2015) - OnePoint Patient Care, the nation's leading hospice pharmacy services provider, has expanded its services to Colorado by opening a new hospice pharmacy in Denver. This new facility fills a strong need in the Colorado hospice market by providing one source for both medication dispensing and pharmacy benefits management (PBM) services.

"We understand the importance of each minute hospice clinicians have with their patients, so we have combined two of hospices' critical pharmacy needs -- local dispensing and cost-containment PBM services -- into one offering, streamlining previously complicated processes for them," says Jeff Hohl, OnePoint's Chief Executive Officer. "By teaming with OnePoint, there are many benefits to the hospices including proactive therapeutic substitution discussion at the time of ordering medications. Today, many hospices must wait for their PBM to call them back only after a 3rd party pharmacy has tried to dispense the medication and received a rejection from the PBM. Using OnePoint eliminates the need to call two different providers and frees caregivers to spend more time caring for patients and less time on administrative red tape."

OnePoint has established itself nationally by recognizing needs in the hospice pharmacy landscape and developing ways to meet them. By creating a network of captive hospice pharmacies nationwide, OnePoint provides the hospice-specific clinical expertise and high level of service hospices need to enhance patient care and operate more efficiently. With OnePoint's entry into the Colorado market, Colorado hospices for the first time have the option of a true local hospice pharmacy to fill all their pharmacy needs, including same-day and STAT delivery.

"Not only has partnering with OnePoint greatly simplified the medication ordering process for us, but it has also allowed us to focus on our ongoing commitment to enhancing care for our patients and their loved ones," said Ali Hartman, Director of Nursing from Suncrest Hospice. "We feel fortunate to have found in OnePoint a true local partner that has worked to understand our unique pharmacy needs and how to meet them."
