eTrueNorth Strengthens Delivery System with PDHI Partnership
Collaboration further empowers local retail pharmacies to perform wellness screenings
Fort Worth, October 23, 2018 – eTrueNorth, the premier, integrated pharmacy-based clinical-services network, has selected technology-platform provider PDHI to empower secure storage and transfer of wellness-screening information from retail pharmacies to biometric screeners, wellness companies, and health plans. This partnership further demonstrates eTrueNorth’s capability of establishing a national wellness-screening voucher program.
PDHI is a HITRUST CSF Certified technology platform provider that works with healthcare organizations to facilitate the management of health information. eTrueNorth recently announced the creation of a nationwide network that will make it easier for employers to gather biometric data from employees as part of wellness programs. Wellness-program participants may now obtain biometric screenings at their local pharmacies thanks to the eLabNetwork™ Voucher Solution.
“This partnership is significant as it further positions eTrueNorth and its network of more than 4,000 retail pharmacies to securely collect and transmit screening results,” said Coral May, President of eTrueNorth. “PDHI’s technology platform provides the security and scalability needed to power eTrueNorth delivery objectives.”
eTrueNorth maintains the eLabNetwork which is composed of independent CLIA-waived laboratories located in retail pharmacies. eLabNetwork software coordinates eligibility, pharmacy selection, scheduling, voucher creation, and billing for lipids, glucose, common vaccines, and basic counseling.
“We are excited to be chosen to provide the technology backbone to eTrueNorth’s transformative plans in healthcare. They imagine a future where consumers can obtain clinical services at retail pharmacies. This service offering will improve access for consumers and help them understand their risk for chronic disease. PDHI is proud to be a part of this important effort,” said Jennifer Jolley, PDHI’s Chief Executive Officer.
The PDHI platform is cloud-based and widely used by healthcare organizations nationwide. “Pharmacists, biometric screeners, wellness companies, and health plans can rest assured that eTrueNorth is powering its network with the best-in-class healthcare technology provider,” said May.
