ProCare Rx Implements Health Plan of San Joaquin
ProCare Rx implements another Health Plan for Pharmacy Benefit Administration, Systems and Services
June 22, 2014 (Newswire.com) - ProCare Rx continues to expand the number of health plan clients with the recent implementation of Health Plan of San Joaquin (HPSJ). The addition of HPSJ marks the fourth health plan client added by ProCare Rx in 2014.
HPSJ serves nearly 240,000 members in the Central Valley Region of Northern California. ProCare Rx was chosen by HPSJ, largely due to ProCare Rx's ability to meet the unique requirements of Medi-Cal and AIM (Access for Infants and Mothers) programs.
Roger Burgess, Owner and Chief Executive Officer of ProCare Rx, said, "We are pleased with the addition of Health Plan of San Joaquin. Our systems were designed to specifically handle the complexity and scale requirements that Health Plans require . . . It is the large scale, complex, time constrained projects where we tend to outperform our competition."
Jonathan Szkotak, PharmD, Director of Pharmacy of HPSJ commented on the smooth transition to ProCare Rx: "We are incredibly impressed with [the] implementation and transition to ProCare Rx. We found their systems to be robust, configurable, and capable of adapting to meet our highly specific needs. ProCare Rx went above and beyond to make sure everything was running smoothly. Their team has been responsive and capable. We feel that our pharmacy benefit is in good, trustworthy hands."
