CarepathRx Launches Home Enteral Nutrition Program to Benefit Hospital Partners

MERCER ISLAND, Wash., Oct. 4, 2021CarepathRx, a leader in specialty pharmacy, home infusion, and medication management solutions, now offers comprehensive enteral nutrition services to benefit hospital and health system partners across the nation. The U.S. market for enteral nutrition is projected to grow at a compounded annual growth rate of approximately 8% over the next 5 years. There are approximately 190,000 pediatrics patients and 250,000 adult patients receiving enteral nutrition.

“Currently, most hospitals and health systems are outsourcing enteral nutrition patients to a third-party provider due to the perceived complexities associated with this type of therapy,” explained CarepathRx Chief Strategy Officer Keith Crawford. “CarepathRx offers a simple, turnkey program that enables health systems to establish their own home nutrition support offering that improves continuity of care, enhances patient satisfaction, and allows the hospital to generate new revenue streams.”

CarepathRx home enteral nutrition services include patient intake, onboarding, insurance verification, billing, clinical oversight, and account services. “CarepathRx is there every step of the way,” said Marilee Fritsch, RD, Clinical Nutrition Coordinator at CarepathRx. “We work directly with the prescribing physician to manage first dose, refills, and any change of service.”

Chartwell Enhances IV Preparations with Omnicell® IVX Workflow

MERCER ISLAND, Wash., June 30, 2021Chartwell Pennsylvania, LP, the nation’s leading health-system based provider of home infusion, specialty pharmacy, and enteral nutrition and a part of CarepathRx Specialty Pharmacy and Home Infusion Solutions, has partnered with Omnicell to install their IVX Workflow sterile compounding technology to manage chemotherapy drug product preparations. A leading provider of medication management solutions and adherence tools for health systems and pharmacies, Omnicell’s IVX Workflow platform is designed to enhance pharmacy technology safety, ensure dosing accuracy, and facilitate compliance, which will allow CarepathRx to lead the way to zero-error medication management.

In December of 2020, Chartwell and UPMC announced a partnership with CarepathRx to expand patient access to innovative specialty pharmacy and home infusion services. “With a commitment to patient care, CarepathRx is proud to partner with Omnicell to become the first provider in the nation to implement the IVX Workflow technology in a home infusion application,” said David Benedict, PharmD, BCPS, Chief Operating Officer at CarepathRx Specialty Pharmacy and Infusion Solutions. “Developing new competencies with this type of pharmacy technology further enhances CarepathRx’s leadership role in the health-system direct home infusion treatment space.”

The use of Omnicell IVX Workflow allows Chartwell technicians to implement a step-by-step preparation of chemotherapy that employs gravimetric verification and barcode-scanning. Computer processing through IVX Cloud administers orders from the clinical pharmacist directly to Chartwell’s state-of-the-art cleanrooms. Plans are currently underway to expand this application to all non-TPN products, including hazardous and non-hazardous home infusion therapies.

“In addition to barcode scanning and gravimetrics, Chartwell implemented automated photography to give our pharmacists the ability to review each step throughout the IV preparation,” said Kyra Wivagg, PharmD, Manager of Pharmacy Operations at Chartwell. “The additional safety checks throughout the process represents a new phase in operational excellence and patient safety. Omnicell’s expert staff coordinated with Chartwell every step of the way to make this possible.”

“Advanced IV compounding technology is a critical component to ensuring quality, accuracy, and standardization in producing dose-specific admixtures,” said Jeff Schlossnagle, Senior Vice President and Chief Growth Officer at Omnicell. “We’re proud to partner with CarepathRx and Chartwell to implement technology and intelligence solutions that are transforming pharmacy operations and delivering improved clinical and operational outcomes.”
