As the COVID-19 pandemic wears on, it’s more important than ever for people to have the ability to perform needed actions from home. To help with this, AllianceRx Walgreens Prime has released some digital clinical assessments that allow people with certain illnesses to manage their conditions online and remain adherent to therapy.
The assessments are available for people with chronic inflammatory disease, cystic fibrosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, lipid and blood disorders, multiple sclerosis and organ transplants. Asked how the company decided upon those conditions, James Adams, chief information officer at AllianceRx Walgreens Prime, says that it “took a strategic approach” that “was based on patient volume, diseases and conditions with lower risk, as well as stability of patients. The chronic inflammatory disease (CID) space was our first program to implement digitally with patients already established on therapy. This included patients with conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, ulcerative colitis, ankylosing spondylitis and others.”
