Hy-Vee joins LDM Group network

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Hy-Vee has joined a network of pharmacies operated by a provider of behavior-based prescription management programs.

LDM Group said the partnership would allow Hy-Vee to offer the former's CarePoints direct-to-patient messaging program used to deliver patient-centric health and wellness information to improve health outcomes.

"Here at Hy-Vee, we understand that the pharmacist's job today entails much more than simply preparing and distributing prescriptions," Hy-Vee VP pharmacy Bob Egeland said. "Our pharmacy patients consider us to be a partner in their health. By joining forces with LDM and the leading-edge technologies it offers, we empower our pharmacists to deliver adherence support to patients so they remain compliant with their medications."
