One of the chief concerns for seniors that home care providers have helped tackle over the years has been medication management. That concept is now being taken to the next level by a handful of companies operating in the home-based care arena.
HouseWorks, a large Boston-based provider of private-pay home care, has partnered with the digital pharmacy Capsule to offer free same-day delivery pharmacy benefits to HouseWorks’ clients.
Meanwhile, Uber Health (NYSE: UBER) recently announced a new partnership with on-demand prescription platform NimbleRX. The partnership launched in Seattle and Dallas, and the two companies are prepared to expand the initiative to more cities in the coming months.
Those two partnerships are just a couple of recent examples of a growing, more advanced way to look at medication management, particularly for an increased population of homebound and chronically ill seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since March, the COVID-19 virus has made a long-time problem for the senior community much worse.
