CarepathRx Launches New Renal Initiative to Improve Patient Medication Therapy Management

MERCER ISLAND, Wash., March 11, 2022 – CarepathRx, a leader in pharmacy and medication management solutions, is proud to announce a new renal initiative to address medication management challenges for patients with kidney disease. The new renal initiative by ExactCare, a CarepathRx company that provides comprehensive medication therapy management and compliance packaging, is being introduced to Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) providers across the nation.

Currently, more than 35 million Americans are living with CKD. This condition is usually asymptomatic and, if left untreated, can develop into kidney failure – requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant. CKD takes an enormous clinical toll on patients and incurs high economic costs to health systems.

“The clinical complexity of end-stage renal disease places patients at risk for polypharmacy, which increases the possibility of adverse drug effects and harmful drug-disease interactions.” said Keith Crawford, Chief Strategy Officer at CarepathRx. “These patients typically take an average of 10 to 12 medications, prescribed by 5 to 7 different physicians, and can total up to 20 pills per day. ExactCare is ideally positioned to redefine medication management in chronic kidney disease.”

ExactCare provides solutions to overcome medication and chronic-care challenges for patients with complex medical needs. Together with CarepathRx, the company serves over 15 health systems and 600 hospitals.

“ExactCare offers a range of services that deliver providers and patients with CKD the ability to optimize therapeutic outcomes and clinically address costly medication problems,” said Graham Gravley, PharmD, Sr. Vice President, Clinical Services at ExactCare. “Our approach is patient-centric, rather than product-focused. We assess and manage the patient’s entire medication therapy regimen to include medication synchronization and other services to improve adherence, such as our convenient, multi-dose compliance packaging.”
