Shreveport, LA – PioneerRx equips pharmacists with the tools they need to keep patients healthy and adherent to their medications, including measurement tools to ensure the top standard of care. Pharmacy Quality Alliance (PQA, Inc.) sets the standards used by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to measure outcomes and Five-Star Quality Ratings. Now, PioneerRx and PQA have worked together to offer adherence measurement tools that include the updated PQA measurement criteria used by CMS.
PioneerRx is one of the first to license CMS standards and incorporate them directly within the pharmacy software system. These standards are the foundation of the Proportion of Days Covered (PDC) that calculates medication adherence. PQA has licensed the use of these measures to PioneerRx to enhance the pharmacists’ ability to improve patient care and medication use. The PQA measures are currently grouped by eleven drug classes, including statins, and hypertension and diabetes medications. PioneerRx will continue to reflect PQA’s quality measures to ensure pharmacists are providing the highest standard of care in the industry.
