On November 1, 2017, BestRx, a software solutions company whose mission is to deliver affordable, easy-to-use, tailored pharmacy software solutions that address the unique demands of independent community pharmacies, became the first pharmacy dispensing software company to enable eCare Plan Level 2 capability under the Pharmacist eCare Plan initiative. Independent pharmacies, which often anchor care in under-served communities, can now not only share care plans electronically and support care coordination, but also be compensated for the valuable medication use supports they offer patients by submitting their electronic care plans to Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC) for payment – all under the BestRx service platform.

Use of eCare Plans nationally is expected to reduce healthcare costs as result of chronically ill patients having better care and fewer hospital visits.
With this capability, BestRx can now facilitate clinical integration through quality improvement and data-sharing…
