VUCA Health announced that Kalos, a provider of software solutions to retail pharmacies and universities, would integrate VUCA Health’s digital patient education solution, MedsOnCue, with their ProPharmOne software
VUCA Health works with leading pharmacy management systems to provide a gateway to patient engagement that serves as an on-demand extension of pharmacists and other healthcare providers. The company’s MedsOnCue solution leverages advanced mobile, web, and on-demand video and communication technologies to deliver trusted patient information. It offers a convenient and cost-effective way for providers to offer patient medication information and strengthen customer connections with video briefings, web messaging, reminders, and a host of other customizable services that extend and enhance the patient relationship.
Digital patient education
Kalos will now include a specific prompt that enables patients to elect to receive electronic medication information. With MedsOnCue, pharmacies that utilize ProPharmOne will also give patients the option to access enhanced educational resources for their prescriptions. These added features include on-demand informational videos, streamlined access to their pharmacy team, and detailed medication photos of their prescription to ensure safety when taking medication.
VUCA aims to address low health literacy and has been working directly with Executive Directors and State Boards of Pharmacies to advocate for a digital alternative to traditional methods of providing prescription information. VUCA added Montana to the list of 44 other states where pharmacies can allow their patients to opt-in to receive their medication information through a digital platform in lieu of paper.
Davis Holden, Project Manager at Kalos stated, “As a leading pharmacy system for universities across the nation, we support a very tech-savvy and diverse patient population as well as pharmacies that have to be very cost-conscious. Being able to provide a video-based, multilingual experience to patients, while also saving the pharmacy on printing costs, makes partnering with VUCA Health a win-win for our customers.”
