Ascension Wisconsin Pain Management

About Ascension Wisconsin Pain Management

The Ascension Wisconsin Pain Management team is an interdisciplinary collaboration of health care providers providing pain management services through a multimodal treatment approach. The team consists of two lead physicians (anesthesiologist and physical medicine and rehabilitation specialties), one physician assistant, one pain psychologist, and one clinical pharmacist within the Center for Pain Management. Services are provided at four different Columbia St. Mary’s locations throughout Milwaukee and Ozaukee counties. Through this collaboration our patients receive a comprehensive treatment approach for their chronic pain including interventional analgesia (i.e. epidural steroid injections, radiofrequency ablation, etc.), physical rehabilitation (i.e. PT, OT), chronic pain self-management education/training, and comprehensive medication management (CMM). Our current CMMA project is focused on implementing pain medication education into our 8-week self-management education/training groups, as well as integrating the clinical pharmacist into the care team as a physician extender.

Aurora Health Care  

About Aurora Health Care

The Aurora Health Care CMMA team project focuses on the creation of an adherence program for our refugee patient population. The Aurora St. Luke’s family medicine clinic sees a large volume of refugee patients. Providers from the family medicine clinic have identified refugee patients as higher risk for potential medication non-adherence due to low health literacy, transportation issues, and differences in culture and language. To overcome these challenges, an adherence program was developed that involves three pharmacist-led services including, comprehensive medication reviews, medication synchronization, and adherence packaging.  An initial pilot of the adherence program is being performed in the Aurora Pharmacy located in the Aurora St. Luke’s Physician Office Building, one floor below the family medicine clinic. Through the adherence program, our goal is to improve health literacy, medication adherence, and clinical outcomes for our refugee patient population.

MedSync-Rx, LLC

About MedSync-Rx, LLC

MedSync-Rx, LLC was incorporated in January 2016 in response to an identified need for pharmacies to more effectively and efficiently dispense medications, specifically to those consumers taking two or more medications for chronic disease management. Based on problems recognized with the current system of medication management and its market structure, founders conceptualized a mobile application for medication synchronization to address perceived inadequacies. Two main customers for the application are Independent Community Pharmacies (ICPs) and consumers using prescription services provided at ICPs (specifically those who take two or more medications). ICPs represent an $81.5 billion marketplace with 92% of their sales coming from prescription drugs. Pharmacists at ICPs are consistent community-based health care providers who recognize changes in customers’ health status and make recommendations for improvement. ICPs often lack financial and technological resources for medication synchronization that are available to big-box pharmacy retailers. Consumers, as end users of the prescription drugs, benefit from improved medication management and health related oversight.
