Abarca selected to present its pharmacy engagement program at AMCP 2021

Multi-channel strategy increased medication adherence for a large Medicare plan.

SAN JUAN, P.R.Abarca, a pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) that is disrupting the industry with a new approach to technology and business practices; announced it had been selected to present its pharmacy engagement program at the 2021 annual conference from the U.S. Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP). This annual managed care conference is attended by more than a thousand healthcare leaders across the United States. 

“At Abarca, we believe that pharmacies are an essential part of our nation’s healthcare system, and this program shows the impact they can make when given the proper resources and support,” said Adriana Ramirez, Esq. “We look forward to continuing developing tools and programs to empower and engage our pharmacy partners in improving member health.”

To improve medication adherence for the Medicare plan, Abarca implemented an integrated engagement strategy that included relaunching its RxTarget program with an incentive for high-performing pharmacies. Through this program, pharmacies are given access to advanced technology and reporting to help them identify and prioritize members who need intervention, improving health outcomes. As a result of these initiatives, the Medicare plan has seen year-over-year increases in medication adherence–even amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“The pharmacies in our network have improved healthcare for thousands of patients,” said Ramirez. “During Pharmacist Week, and every week, we are grateful for everything they do to make healthcare awesome.”
