New Humana Tool Aims to Improve Medication Management and Safety

According to the official word handed down to MHW today, a new tool developed by Humana Inc. enables Humana members to more easily keep a list of their medications in one place.

The resource, we’re told, helps members stay organized to improve medication management, safety and clinical outcomes.

Members can access the RxMentor tool via the MyHumana.com website or by downloading the app for iPhone and Android devices.

In addition to the user benefits, the RxMentor tool will allow physicians and health care providers to feel more confident in their medication prescribing management when the list is shared with them. This is because the app pulls from claims data in addition to medication and allergy information that is self-reported by the member.

“Managing multiple daily medications is challenging especially when those medications might be prescribed for a member by multiple physicians. Remembering all the names and when and how to take them can be a daunting task,” said William Fleming, PharmD, President of Humana’s Health Care Services. “The RxMentor tool can take some of those barriers away by giving our members an easier way to keep track of and communicate all their medication to their doctors and caregivers. This simple tool will go a long way to help our members improve their health and well-being.”
