OptiMed Pharmacy Improves Efficiencies with Mediware’s CPR+ Software

CPR+ Specialty Pharmacy Software Simplifies Complex Pharmacy Workflows

Lenexa, KS, December 3, 2015– Mediware Information Systems, Inc., a provider of comprehensive post-acute healthcare software, announces that OptiMed Specialty Pharmacy is successfully using Mediware’s CPR+ specialty pharmacy software to help manage its business. Since implementing the CPR+ software earlier this year, OptiMed has realized considerable improvements in daily operations while expanding its business with new contracts and services.

OptiMed is a specialty pharmacy that treats more than 450 patients with chronic diseases each month. Andrew Reeves, Founder and CEO of OptiMed Pharmacy explains that “using our previous retail system, we had no organized way to track orders. With CPR+ we can automatically track orders throughout the entire specialty process.” Reeves also explained that CPR+ Analytics, which utilizes real-time data reporting, has important reporting capabilities; “I was contacted by a drug manufacturer and was offered a service agreement to provide certain reporting. We would never have been able to take that contract if we weren’t using CPR+ software,” added Reeves.

“OptiMed is one of over 200 specialty pharmacies that are live using the CPR+ application,” says Paul O’Toole, Vice President and General Manager of the Home Care Solutions Division of Mediware. “Providing forward thinking industry technology is at the core of Mediware’s solutions, and we are thrilled that OptiMed Specialty Pharmacy can benefit from our time-saving software tools,” added O’Toole.
