AdhereRx to Open New High-Tech Pharmacy in Phoenix, Arizona

Expansion will help company meet surge in demand for private courier services, speeding delivery of prescription drugs to patients with complex medication needs

Nashville, TN – March 18, 2020 – AdhereRx, a subsidiary of AdhereHealth, announced plans to open a new high-tech pharmacy in Phoenix, Arizona. The new 18,000-square-foot facility will enable AdhereRx to better support managed care organizations and providers serving patients with chronic conditions.

“This new facility comes at a crucial time. We were already experiencing a spike in demand for our unique AdhereRx pharmacy, which has now been magnified by the recent spread of COVID-19 and guidance for social distancing – especially for the elderly and high-risk patients,” said Jason Z. Rose, CEO at AdhereHealth. “The need to expand our pharmacy operations is greater than ever. We hope to ease the concerns of patients by ensuring continued access to medications, which in turn will prevent additional strains on our healthcare system.”

AdhereRx is a high-touch pharmacy for medically complex patients with challenging social determinants of health who benefit from private courier delivery. The team of licensed pharmacists and pharmacy technicians work seamlessly with managed care organizations and their providers to support patient care with services such as:

  • Ongoing predictive analytics to identify high-risk patients and drug therapy problems
  • Personalized medication regimens with monthly synchronization to help remove adherence barriers
  • Private HIPAA-certified couriers to deliver medications, including Schedule III-V controlled substances
  • Financial assistance and cash on delivery options

AdhereRx has been in business for more than 15 years and already operates a high-volume pharmacy in Cary, North Carolina. The new facility in Phoenix will be equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including specialized cameras and robotic systems to automatically and remotely package prescriptions. The grand opening is scheduled for spring 2020.
