Agreement brings new courses for hospice and palliative care providers
CARY, NC, March 13, 2018 – Relias, a trusted partner focused on reducing variation for more than 7,000 clients around the world and across the continuum of healthcare, today announced a new partnership with Enclara Pharmacia that will add new courses to the Relias Learning Management System (RLMS) on a wide range of hospice and palliative care topics. Enclara is a national full-service PBM and mail order supplier of medications and clinical services developed specifically for the hospice and palliative care industry.
Through this partnership, Enclara will provide no fewer than 8 learning activities, available beginning March 1, with additional activities available as Relias / Enclara collaborative efforts continue. Business Customers on the RLMS will have full access to this exciting new content through the Relias Hospice Essentials Library. As a valued added feature of their service relationship with Enclara Pharmacia, customers have free access to the courses through the Enclara Learning Academy with the ability to earn continuing education (CE) credits.
Enclara’s courses equip hospice and palliative care clinicians with the knowledge and skills needed to provide high quality care at the bedside. Courses focus on appropriate medication management of symptoms and conditions based upon clinical evidence and cost effectiveness.
“When entering partnerships, a key criterion for us is asking the question ‘Will this help our clients get better?’,” said Mark Belles, COO of Relias. “Undoubtedly, the expertise Enclara offers will be a benefit to our client partners and ultimately to those they serve.”
Andy Horowitz, CEO, Enclara, said, “Enclara Pharmacia has been the leader in hospice education and services for more than 20 years now. In addition to industry leading innovations including E3 Mobile™, Enclarity™, and the Medication Utilization Guidelines (MUGS)™, we deliver technology and clinical support solutions that improve quality, while increasing efficiency and reducing overall cost to provide care. Our partnership with Relias extends our commitment to innovate the delivery of education through technology to improve the knowledge of those caring for patients and their families with advanced illness and at the end of life.”
