Cardinal Health, Inc. has acquired Mirixa Corp., a leading provider of technology-enabled solutions for the provision of medication therapy management services, from NCPA. The business will integrate into OutcomesMTM, a pioneer in the MTM market, at Cardinal Health. Cardinal says the merging of these technology platforms will:
Simplify the workflow for pharmacy staffs in retail, clinic, and long-term care settings.
Allow pharmacy staffs to more effectively deliver services such as comprehensive medication reviews, medication adherence consultations, and other important interventions to patients.
Bring payers an enhanced pharmacy services network and standardize care delivery, documentation, and billing for MTM services.
"Since its inception, Mirixa paid more than $100 million to community pharmacies for MTM and adherence services – a huge benefit to NCPA members," said NCPA CEO Douglas Hoey. "The original objective of Mirixa was to empower and enable independent community pharmacists, which is a vision this integration with OutcomesMTM and Cardinal Health seeks to continue."
Though Mirixa will no longer be under the NCPA umbrella, NCPA remains laser-focused on investments like CPESN® USA, a pharmacy-based clinically integrated network, and ongoing efforts to grow CPESN networks so pharmacies can be paid for the services they are providing.
