Albertsons Pharmacies Awarded for 4th Consecutive Quarter
Albertsons Cos. has been named the Top Large Pharmacy Chain for quarter one of 2017 by medication therapy management services provider OutcomesMTM. The category recognizes companies that have more than 900 pharmacy locations across the United States.
OutcomesMTM, a Cardinal Health company, selected Albertsons for the award to recognize its commitment to providing quality patient care and improving patient outcomes through drug therapy optimization. Utilized in every Albertsons Cos. pharmacy across the U.S., the OutcomesMTM Connect platform offers pharmacy teams additional opportunities to engage with patients – from performing annual comprehensive medication reviews and supporting adherence to important medications, to resolving interventions related to safety, cost and more.
This marks the fourth quarter in a row that Albertsons has been recognized by OutcomesMTM in the Top Large Pharmacy Chain category, and the second time it has received the annual Top Large Pharmacy Chain award. Albertsons also received the Most Innovative Pharmacy Chain award from OutcomesMTM in 2014.
“We’re proud of this recognition and the exceptional care our pharmacy teams provide their patients each and every day,” said Mark Panzer, Albertsons SVP of pharmacy health and wellness. “The demand for MTM is at an all-time high, as is the demand for accessible, quality affordable healthcare. Albertsons Companies is committed to meeting that demand by empowering our pharmacy teams to help patients take the right medications in the right way at the right time.”
Boise, Idaho-based Albertsons Cos. operates stores across 35 states and Washington, D.C., under 19 well-known banners, including Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s, Acme, Tom Thumb, Randalls, United Supermarkets, Pavilions, Star Market, Haggen and Carrs.
