VoicePort inks patent agreement with Walgreens

Rochester Business Journal
July 10, 2014

VoicePort LLC on Thursday announced a patent licensing agreement with Walgreen Co. covering 11 U.S. patents and patent applications owned by the pharmacy chain within the area of prescription alignment.

VoicePort’s pharmacy informatics platform, PharmaPhonetics, helps pharmacists and staff members identify patients eligible to participate in a prescription program, the company said.

"VoicePort's Synchro-Script technology works best for everyone when it is backed with robust intellectual property and patents," CEO Christopher Mann said in a statement.
 
The platform offers medication recommendations to assist the pharmacy team with the patient’s care, and the calculation of the required short fills necessary for the patient.

VoicePort provides back-end analytical tools to help measure the effectiveness of the pharmacy on keeping patients on schedule with their medications.

"Allowing pharmacy patients the opportunity to pick up multiple prescription medications once a month has shown to significantly improve a patient's proportion of days covered on their medications," said Alphonse Sasso, vice president of business development for VoicePort.

Founded in 2002, VoicePort has deployed applications at more than 700 customer sites in North America.
