CLEVELAND (May 21, 2015) – Dale Wollschleger, RPh, ExactCare® Pharmacy President & CEO, has been named a 2015 Smart 50 honoree and winner of the Smart 50 special category award for innovation.
The Smart 50 Awards recognize the top executives of the 50 “smartest” companies in Northeast Ohio for their ability to build and lead successful organizations. The special category award for innovation pays tribute to an organization that has led the way in its industry.
“To be recognized with an award for innovation truly is an honor because it’s a principle we’ve embraced from the very beginning at ExactCare,” Wollschleger said. “The company was founded on the idea to find a better way for patients struggling with their medications. That focus is unwavering still today. As we look to the future, innovation and continuous improvement continue to be at the forefront of our culture.”
ExactCare’s disruptive pharmacy model helps patients simplify their daily medication routines and achieve better adherence while enabling better clinical and economic outcomes. The company’s approach includes unique features such as an in-home assessment to gather the patient’s medication information; medication reconciliation to verify prescription accuracy; ongoing refill management; and the ExactPack® adherence packaging system, which is customized to each patient.
“What makes ExactCare innovative and unique is that we do more than fill prescriptions; we’re a health care partner,” Wollschleger said. “Our clinical pharmacists work closely with a patient’s health care team to provide comprehensive medication management support. This type of support not only helps ensure optimal patient health, but it also bridges a gap in the health care industry by providing critical support for coordination of care initiatives and the shift to value-based health care models.”
In addition to its Cleveland-based headquarters, ExactCare operates a regional pharmacy in Lakewood, New Jersey. As of 2015, ExactCare has successfully obtained licensure to serve patients in 48 states and Washington, D.C.
