Irvine, California, Aug. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PrescribeWellness, a leading cloud-based patient relationship management solutions company that inspires collaboration between pharmacies, payers, providers, pharmaceutical companies and their patients for better health, and EPIC Pharmacy Network (EPN), one of the nation's largest managed care networks for independent pharmacies in the United States, today announced the two companies are expanding their relationship to help select member pharmacies to succeed in EPN's new pay-for-performance program designed to improve patient adherence.

PrescribeWellness has served as the technology partner for EPN since 2015, providing its full suite of solutions and expert support to nearly 1,700 EPN member pharmacies to help them improve overall network adherence and Star Ratings, strengthen patient loyalty, and increase revenue.

As the longest running and still growing quality-based network program available to EPN members, pharmacies will receive compensation on a per patient and per measure basis.
