MeadWestvaco Corp. Introduces Avive(R), Software-Based Pharmacy System with Benefits Across Patient, Payer and Provider Needs

MeadWestvaco Corp. announced the commercial availability of the Avive(R) Multimed system, a software-based solution that establishes a pharmacy home, synchronizes medication regimens, improves adherence, supports reimbursement for services including medication therapy management and helps dramatically improve CMS Star Ratings performance. Avive(R) is a software-based pharmacy system with benefits across patient, payer and provider needs that increases medication adherence, pharmacy efficiency and CMS Star Ratings. The company and its partner, LTCPCMS Inc., developed the Avive system to decrease the complexities of poly-pharmacy. Avive is designed to provide pharmacists and health care management personnel with software tools and workflow to create synchronized, personalized medication regimens. These regimens drive patient adherence by accommodating their input and activities of daily living. The Avive solution is supported by pending patents. Avive addresses the growing number of people in the United States suffering from co-morbidities who are taking an increasing number of medications, prescribed by a number of physicians and purchased from a myriad of pharmacies. Research shows that by synchronizing these medications with one pharmacy home, patients can experience better health outcomes, health-related expenses are lowered and refill rates rise dramatically. The Avive solution offers these additional benefits: Creates customized regimens with multiple patient pack systems, including Rx vials and bottles, calendared blister packs and pouch/strip pack systems; Develops customized hours of administration (HOAs) and universal medication schedules (UMS) and drives data transfer of simplified labeling and regimen calendars to pharmacy printer and automation equipment, without significant modification of pharmacy host systems; Provides methodology for prescription synchronization and personalized regimen creation; Provides checks for multi-med drug regimen compatibility; Creates patient regimen databases and reporting; Develops a call and follow-up schedule to update and modify the customized regimen over time, not after initial synchronization. Designed for use in retail pharmacy, mail order, call center and PBM environments, the Avive system is available for non-exclusive licensing to potential partners.
