Turn your pharmacy spend into a pharmacy investment with Strategic Rx StewardshipTM

Stewardship for self-funded employers.

  1. Northwind offers a national pharmacy services platform that brings the logistics of drug distribution and home delivery pharmacy together with analytics, pharmacy benefits, chronic disease programs, and software to help create a Nexus of CareTM to influence healthcare costs and outcomes.
  2. What does good stewardship look like?
    • Leveraging medications to engage members by removing cost and access barriers through careful program design, wholesale medication access, and pass through manufacturer rebates.
    • Influencing clinical outcomes by closely pairing pharmacy with a primary care point of influence, and facilitating the process with Clinical BlueprintsTM that help engage, manage, and monitor participants as they move toward better healthcare behaviors.
    • Assessing the ongoing impact of the pharmacy investment with real-time data, clinically-centered analytics, and employer, medical provider, and patient collaboration on the RxStewardTM software platform.

Results sooner than later.

Northwind’s clinical and data teams can quickly show you how to optimize your pharmacy spend for measurable improvements in clinical impact and overall costs.

What’s the secret? By identifying opportunities to reduce the cost of medications and identifying gaps in care/compliance, we can lower total cost of care by getting the right medication at the right price to the right place at the right time.

Our team does the work. You get the results.

Here’s how we do it.

We collect and analyze your healthcare and pharmacy claims data.

We identify hidden opportunities to reduce drug costs, remove barriers to medication access, target problematic chronic diseases, and engage patients in their own health journey.

We provide your team with our findings and a detailed plan for moving forward.

If you like what you see, we’ll come alongside you and your existing partners to implement the plan and measure results.

Flexible solutions for what you need now and what comes next.
