SINGER ISLAND, Fla., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- PrescribeUS announced today the introduction of the third largest long-term care (LTC) pharmacy network in the U.S. The new pharmacy services provider offers skilled nursing and assisted living chain organizations a competitive alternative to the two largest public chains. PrescribeUS's mission is to provide LTC operators with superior personalized service at the facility level and to assist them in reaching their outcome and quality goals. By using only independent pharmacies, PrescribeUS clients gain the benefit of service provided by pharmacy owners, not employees, as well as the same programs and technology available from the two largest US Pharmacies, but with the advantage of reduced overhead and lower costs.


PrescribeUS provides coverage in 33 states with their independent LTC pharmacies and is moving forward to expand its network to cover over 40 states within the next 6 months. Member independent pharmacies operate on a standardized software platform that affords care providers advanced integration opportunities, plus the personalized service and rapid response that only local owners can provide.  Additionally, PrescribeUS offers instant access to consolidated data of individual facilities for corporate management.

CEO, Barry Schepp, who has more than 15 years of experience in the LTC Pharmacy industry, views service excellence as a significant point of differentiation and advantage for his new organization. "PrescribeUS offers increased value to long-term care communities by providing advanced technology with the added benefit of superior customer service delivered by independent pharmacy owners who eat, sleep and breathe our client facilities' needs. We are a national pharmacy network, providing local solutions delivered with pride by local ownership." Commenting on the local delivery model his network offers, Schepp added, "The centralization of many of the 'big twos' services, such as billing, Medicare D management and medical records, have left their clients' facilities with support too far removed."

The CEO also points with pride to PrescribeUS's pharmacy operations system, which he sees as another point of advantage. FrameworkLTC by SoftWriters, Inc. enables independent pharmacies to offer complete, customized service offerings while streamlining processes, reducing costs, improving accuracy and enhancing communication in every phase of prescription management. FrameworkLink, FrameworkLTC's client web portal, puts more information at the facility's fingertips than any other solution in the industry.

Heather Martin, SoftWriters, Inc. VP of Sales and Marketing, adds, "We are very proud to be the operations technology partner of PrescribeUS in this exciting national venture. Together, we bring increased value to both LTC communities and the residents they serve. Our Microsoft-certified technology delivers innovative, flexible software solutions and services designed specifically for long-term care and institutional pharmacies."
