AssureCare and Kroger Health to provide an unparalleled medication management platform for reducing medication risk and increasing the quality of care provided by the pharmacy.

Fremont, CA: AssureCare announces implementing an industry-leading patient-centric, highly configurable, connected care and medication management platform, MedCompass® with Kroger Health, facilitating greater access to pharmacists and their services while better serving their patients.

Created upon AssureCare’s core connected platform, MedCompass provides exceptional medication management and adherence capabilities, minimizing medication risk and improving the quality of care provided by the pharmacy. Kroger Health collaborated with AssureCare, to support the extension of Kroger Health's clinical services and the integration of community pharmacy and dietitian services. The AssureCare platform joined Kroger’s pharmacy dispensing system to create a seamless experience for providers, increase access to health information, and improve the quality of care given. The integration of Kroger’s food as medicine component also enables a more holistic view of a patient’s overall health and wellness journey.

AssureCares' portfolio of industry-leading population health management solutions provide unparalleled and unrivaled capabilities for pharmacies, payers, and providers, enabling focus on value-based care. Kroger will leverage a broad range of services, including medication reviews and adherence, chronic disease management, gaps in care closure, dietitian workflow management, targeting analytics, clinical visit support, and provider portal communication.

"Healthcare delivery is very disconnected in this country. The AssureCare platform can change this by connecting patients, providers, and health insurers," said Colleen Lindholz, President of Kroger Health. "It allows our teams to deliver industry leading clinical services by combining data assets from multiple sources to deliver the right care to the right patient at the right time.”

“We thank Kroger Health for their trust, commitment, collaboration and shared vision. The work Kroger Health and AssureCare have achieved together is crucial to increasing the responsibilities of pharmacists in healthcare which greatly improves overall population health,” Yousuf J. Ahmad, DrPH, MBA, MHSA, FACHE, President & CEO of AssureCare. “AssureCare’s industry leading connected care solutions empower organizations like Kroger Health to dramatically improve their value-based services and improve an individual’s overall healthcare journey,” Dr. Ahmad added.
