QS/1® Achieves Level 2 Capability for the Pharmacist Electronic Care Plan

QS/1 continues to be at the forefront of pharmacy innovation, having received Level 2 Capability from Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC) for the Pharmacist eCare Plan.

The Pharmacist eCare Plan is a program that standardizes documentation of patient information and facilitates the exchange between healthcare providers and pharmacists. The goal is to advance care coordination, improve patient outcomes, and reduce overall healthcare costs.

“The Pharmacist eCare Plan is a standard endorsed by the Pharmacy Health Information Technology Collaborative and serves as a standardized, interoperable document for exchanging medication-related activities, plans and goals for individuals needing care,” said Troy Trygstad, Pharm.D., Ph.D., Vice President of Pharmacy and Provider Partnerships at Community Care of North Carolina. “It is exciting that QS/1 can provide this capability for their pharmacy customers who can begin participating in clinical documentation and care planning workflows for all of their patients and sharing of data with other care team members. This is the future of community-based pharmacy practice.”

“Giving pharmacists the ability to collect and share patient data validates the role they play in the healthcare chain,” said Ed Vess, R.Ph., QS/1 senior manager Customer Markets and Services. “QS/1 has been an advocate of this program and worked to help give pharmacists a bigger voice. This information will allow all involved to see the progress, or setbacks, in the patient’s health.”

CCNC launched the Pharmacist eCare Plan with a pilot program to track the benefits to patients and streamline the communication process. QS/1 works diligently to forge these innovative partnerships and leverage technology to provide community pharmacies the solutions and expanded resources needed to better serve patients. 

“From there, everyone can come together and adjust plans to help patients,” Vess added. “Community pharmacists often see and talk with patients more than other healthcare professionals. This gives insight into whether they are compliant with medications and adhering to their healthcare regimen.”

QS/1 is honored to play an integral role in this technology, which allows pharmacists to begin the documented dialogue and share their valuable contribution to the healthcare continuum.
