FORT WORTH, TX--(Marketwired - Oct 11, 2017) - FDS, the pharmacy-centric healthcare technology company dedicated to helping customers succeed in today's complex and multi-faceted healthcare ecosystem, announced today that it has successfully achieved Pharmacy eCare Plan "Level 1 capability" from Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC). The goal of this initiative is to empower community pharmacies to improve care coordination and health outcomes with use of electronic care plans.

Part of the Community Pharmacy Enhanced Services Network, the Pharmacist eCare Plan is a shared document detailing a patient's current medication regimen and health concerns, including drug therapy problems, therapeutic goals and medication support needs, as well as the pharmacy's interventions and the patient's health outcomes. The Pharmacist eCare Plan standard allows pharmacists to create care plans within the pharmacy's existing technology utilizing existing standards for healthcare data exchange. Level 1 capability includes the successful transmission of test data validated for format and file transfer quality. For more information on the Pharmacist eCare Plan initiative, click here.
