A Message from AvaCare Co-founder Keith B. Sanderson

My family has been operating pharmacies for several generations, and I also own and operate a hospice. In recent years, our hospice has focused increasingly on managing costs and optimizing our clinical decision-making, and we sought the help of a pharmacy benefits manager (PBM). We found, however, that the existing PBMs lackedĀ  the patient care and customer service focus that is central to our way of doing business, and that the “cookie-cutter” approach of many PBMs just didn’t fit our hospice’s needs. That’s when we decided to form AvaCare. AvaCare is a revolutionary kind of PBM, specifically designed to handle the clinical and financial challenges of hospices. As one of the few privately owned hospice PBMs, we’re able to base our clinical recommendations solely on what is best for the patient and what’s most cost effective. We know your staff doesn’t have time to be placed on hold, and having immediate access to a pharmacist specially trained in hospice pharmacy is important. Quick and easy patient enrollment is essential along with minimizing your pharmacy costs. At AvaCare, we provide you with top-notch clinical pharmacists who assist nurses with symptom management and pain control. We partner with your local pharmacies to improve your patient care and reduce your medication expenses. AvaCare is able to deliver all these benefits with superior customer service that is rarely found in any market. I invite you to experience a unique kind of pharmacy provider today!
