PACE Pharmacy News & Updates
What word comes to mind when you think of CareKinesis?

Two of our client liaisons and a summer intern with a movie-making hobby visited a handful of clients and asked them to describe CareKinesis in one word.

The Medication Risk Score:
Coming soon to EireneRx

Clients have asked for one simple indicator on a med profile that shows a participant's medication-related risk. Our parent company, TRHC, has proven the value of the patented Medication Risk Score through health plans and provider group partnerships. Now we are releasing the score to PACE through EireneRx. More information will be shared with clients soon about this exciting development, but in the meantime, email us with questions!
Participant/Family Engagement App:
My MedWise Advisor

We're preparing the CareKinesis patient and caregiver app, My MedWise AdvisorĀ®, for Phase 1 release! This app integrates with EireneRx to provide participants and caregivers with access to their complete active medication list, reminder alerts, pharmacy communication tools, and more. To join the other CK PACE clients participating in this Phase 1 release, please email us for more information.
