Patient Case Management Solutions
Acro provides comprehensive pharmacy care and case management to individuals requiring maintenance injectable medications. Our pharmacists and clinicians are specially trained in high-risk conditions and are highly skilled at helping you manage complex medication therapies. We follow “Best Practices” guidelines and use evidence-based protocols for managing appropriate therapeutic utilization. Our patient care management programs focus on compliance, adherence to drug therapy and appropriate utilization. The goal of each program is to increase the number of patients who will achieve the desired clinical result by improving patient compliance to the prescribed medication regimen.
These programs are developed to perform three basic functions:
- Emphasize prevention of exacerbations and complications utilizing evidence-based practice guidelines and patient empowerment strategies.
- Evaluate clinical, humanistic and economic outcomes on an ongoing basis with the goal of improving overall health.
- Support the physician or practitioner/patient relationship and plan of care.

Patient Care Coordination
Patient-care coordination is the process that oversees multiple aspects of therapy for patients receiving specialty drugs. Because specialty-drug treatment may change frequently, patient-care management includes monitoring for:
- Adequate home or office inventory levels of the drugs
- Adherence to prescribed drug regimens
- Continuity of care
- Coordination of home-care services
- Patient assessment screening surveys
- Ongoing prior authorization requirements
- Eligibility or benefits changes
Patient-care coordinators work in conjunction with licensed clinicians to provide comprehensive clinical management services. By providing patient-assessment screening surveys at each refill, patient care coordinators assist the clinical team in identifying high-risk patients and adverse clinical events at routine intervals.
These services bring the added value of disease management concepts to pharmacy, with critical pathway management and targeted, proactive clinical interventions at specific intervals throughout treatment to optimize clinical outcomes. Ongoing, objective measurement of clinical-outcomes indicators specific to the disease and its treatment is paramount to quantifying the success of care-management strategies. By evaluating clinical measurement, Acro can document and provide treatment outcomes to clients.
