The license covers 11U.S. patents and patent applications owned by Walgreens in to the field of prescription alignment. "VoicePort's Synchro-Script™ technology works best for everyone when it is backed with robust intellectual property and patents," said Christopher Mann, Chief Executive Officer at VoicePort.

Medication Synchronization is an industry solution that has proven to improve patient adherence through a multiple tier touch point. "Allowing pharmacy patients the opportunity to pick up multiple prescription medications once a month has shown to significantly improve a patient's Proportion of Days Covered on their medications," said Alphonse J. Sasso, Vice President of Business Development. Sasso further commented, "When consumers stay adherent to their maintenance medications, it translates to improved patient health outcomes while also increasing pharmacy efficiencies, a true win/win solution."

VoicePort's systems leverage their proprietary pharmacy informatics platform, PharmaPhonetics®, as a dynamic analysis tool to help pharmacists and staff identify patients eligible to participate in the program. The platform then offers anchor medication recommendations that the pharmacy team can align to get all meds on a once a month schedule and calculates the required short fills necessary to help the pharmacist complete the task for the patient. Each Pharmacy is also supported with an automated calling system from VoicePort to enroll patients in the synchronization program, to schedule the pharmacist-patient counseling sessions, and to alert patients when their medications are ready for pick up. VoicePort also provides back-end analytical tools to help measure pharmacy progress on keeping patients on schedule with their medications; a complete turn-key solution to help deliver greater patient health and wellness.
