The Challenge


Hypertension is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease, North America’s #1 Killer.

 

womens_banner3--PhysicianIt is estimated that 1 in 4 adults worldwide has hypertension (including 1 in 3 American adults) and that 9 out of 10 people will become hypertensive at some point in their life.

In the United States, 32% of hypertensives are not aware of their condition, and only 50% of hypertensives take their medication as prescribed.

PharmaSmart Program Advantages and Benefits

 

Independently Validated Accuracy – The PharmaSmart PS-2000 has been validated for accuracy by a published, independent clinical study.  It is considered as accurate as a well trained blood pressure technician. PharmaSmart’s unique and patented cuff design is proven to be comfortable and accurate for all adult arm sizes (up to 38cm in circumference).

Ease of Use – PharmaSmart provides private, convenient blood pressure measurement, data retention, and tracking. Our easy-to-use BP tracking technology maximizes patient participation. PharmaSmart exclusively offers one-button functionality on all models.

Smart Card Management Tool – Our unique user Smart Card enables patients to accurately and conveniently track their “between visit” readings and report that data back to their physician. The PharmaSmart kiosk will print the cardholder’s last 10 readings, including dates and averages of systolic, diastolic, and pulse. The patient is encouraged to bring their printed report to their pharmacist and physician, allowing for improved patient management.  

Online “BP Tracker” – PharmaSmart’s BP Tracker™ web portal allows PharmaSmart users to access their readings online.   It also makes it easy for users to share their personal BP Tracker™ page with their loved ones or healthcare provider. Like the PharmaSmart kiosk and the Smart Card, the BP Tracker® portal is easy to use and 100% confidential. Our open platform ensures compatibility with the medical record “ecosystem” – including physician (EMR), pharmacist (MTM), pharmacy benefits manager (PBM), and PHR patient data management networks.

Focus on Hypertension – Our program focuses on controlling hypertension, the #1 preventable disease state in North America. Our focused message and practical BP tracking technology initiate a high impact, pharmacy-based patient management regimen.

Quality Equipment – PharmaSmart now serves 6,500+ retail pharmacies, hospitals, and worksites across North America, administering over 65 million BP tests annually. Check out our testimonials for client testimonials on our “quality assurance” national service program.

Doctor Detailing


physicianimage1In addition to providing technology and services to our retail pharmacy partners, PharmaSmart has launched a new “Doctor Detailing” program as a value-added service. In combination with our Health IT Integrated Software Solutions, our detailers can provide you critical information that helps physicians to both optimize their standard of care under today’s quality system mandate and boost “out of office” patient “control” rates.

When launching a PharmaSmart program into a new community, we have found it helpful to inform local physicians about the new pharmacy-based programs and how it can help them to provide improved hypertension management for their patients. Physicians can also utilize our web tools for locating the nearest PharmaSmart pharmacy. Contact us for additional details about this feature. 

Our brief visit to the local clinics gives physicians a better understanding of the technology, patient care tools, and professional pharmacy services that make our programs unique.  

Our representatives will leave behind simple toolkits or can ship them directly to the physician’s office to help them make the most of the PharmaSmart program offered at their local pharmacy.   The toolkits include keydoctor_detailing information and custom stickers that can be applied to the prescriptions of select patients, encouraging the local pharmacist to offer that patient a blood pressure Smart Card.

Many EMR and E-Script software providers are now offering PharmaSmart features inside their system. Call your software provider today and find out if they are connected with PharmaSmart.

The response to this new program has been outstanding, with many physicians embracing PharmaSmart as a new and practical patient care tool that can provide real benefits to their busy practices.
