WOONSOCKET – CVS Caremark has been named one of seven finalists for a Care Coordination and Clinical Integration Best Practice Award by Urac, a leading health care accreditation organization, the company announced Wednesday.

CVS Caremark was nominated for its Pharmacy Advisor Counseling program, which aims to improve medication adherence and close gaps in care by providing consultations through multiple channels.

“URAC is honored to recognize organizations like CVS Caremark who are promoting care coordination and clinical integration programs that are truly patient-centered and improve care quality and outcomes,” said Kylanne Green, Urac President and CEO.

Jon Roberts, president of CVS Caremark’s pharmacy benefit management business, said in a release that he was “pleased” to see CVS Caremark selected as a finalist, adding, “Pharmacy Advisor Counseling is an example of our efforts to develop innovative programs that improve patient engagement, better manage chronic diseases like diabetes and help clients manage their health care costs.”

Urac, formerly known as Utilization Review Accreditation Commission, will present gold, silver and bronze awards in the Care Coordination and Clinical Integration category at its 2013 Quality Summit on Oct. 1.

The other finalists are programs by Robert Young Center and Community Health Care Inc.; Magellan Health Services of Arizona; PerformRx, AmeriHealth Caritas Pennsylvania, Keystone First; Express Scripts; Health TeamWorks; and Prime Therapeutics and Florida Blue.
