Oklahoma Health Care Authority, the agency that oversees the state’s Medicaid program, rolled out an expansion of its virtual medication program this month.
OHCA announced on Oct. 24 its partnership with health technology company Arine, which offers a platform that delivers personalized, user-friendly medication management and quality improvement services.
OHCA uses Arine’s platform, which is referred to as the virtual pharmacist, to offer Medicaid members personalized medication counseling and treatment optimization services from clinical pharmacists who also use the platform.
As part of the program expansion, which began in October, clinicians from University of Oklahoma College of Pharmacy in Oklahoma City will use the virtual pharmacist platform to provide services to all counties across the state.
