Empowering healthcare providers to remove barriers to care

WALTHAM, Mass., March 04, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OptimizeRx Corp. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: OPRX), a leading provider of healthcare technology solutions helping life sciences companies reach and engage healthcare professionals (HCPs) and patients, today announced its collaboration with Walmart to support its Specialty Pharmacies of the Community (SPOCs) provider outreach initiative.

OptimizeRx’s Dynamic Audience Activation Platform (DAAP), is helping to connect healthcare providers with Walmart’s growing network of nearly 90 SPOCs across 13 states. This collaboration aims to help HCPs identify a new solution for patients facing barriers to care, particularly those living with HIV and autoimmune conditions.

With its proprietary digital point of care network and targeted social media capabilities, OptimizeRx’s DAAP will deliver awareness messaging directly to HCPs treating HIV- and auto-immune-impacted populations, highlighting the resources and expertise available through Walmart SPOCs. This targeted outreach eliminates the burden of providers manually searching for appropriate specialty care options, saving valuable time, and ensuring that more individuals are aware of the valuable resources available through Walmart’s SPOCs.

“At Walmart, we’re passionate about ensuring people have access to care and support they need,” said Kevin Host, SVP of Pharmacy at Walmart. “Collaborating with OptimizeRx has been instrumental in facilitating and coordinating access to a network of crucial healthcare providers - those treating patients with complex conditions. DAAP allows us to connect with the right physicians at the right time, empowering them with valuable information about the breadth and depth of the resources available at Walmart SPOCs. This collaboration is a true win-win, enabling us to better serve both physicians and their patients, ultimately leading to improved health outcomes for people living with chronic conditions.”

Offering a unique patient experience, Walmart's SPOCs represent a significant step forward in providing accessible and compassionate care. The specialized pharmacies offer a discreet and accessible environment for patients to receive comprehensive care from a dedicated team of HIV-trained pharmacists, technicians, and Community Health Workers. They offer a comprehensive approach that goes beyond medication dispensing, providing patients with comprehensive support, including treatment plan counseling, navigating insurance options, mental health support and community resources. By addressing the unique challenges faced by individuals living with chronic conditions, like HIV, SPOCs aim to reduce healthcare disparities, improve treatment adherence, and improve patient outcomes.

“Collaborating with Walmart on this impactful initiative is a strategic milestone for OptimizeRx, reinforcing our commitment to improving patient access to vital resources,” said Steve Silvestro, President of OptimizeRx. This alliance not only represents a significant advancement in patient-centric care but also demonstrates the growing role that technology plays in bridging healthcare access gaps which helps to improve the care experience. Our focus remains on the long-term vision of enhancing health and wellness outcomes for communities nationwide, fostering innovation and positioning OptimizeRx, our partners and their patients for sustained success.”
