Rite Aid And Heritage Provider Network Announce Collaboration To Improve Health Management Of Chronic And Poly-Chronic Patients Across Southern California

Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE: RAD), one of the nation’s leading drug store chains, and global healthcare leader Heritage Provider Network (HPN), one of California’s largest healthcare provider networks, announced today they have entered into an agreement to bring the Rite Aid Health Alliance program to HPN’s chronic and poly-chronic patients across Southern California.

Today, Rite Aid President and Chief Operating Officer Ken Martindale along with Heritage Provider Network President and Chief Executive Officer Richard Merkin, M.D., will host a press conference at the Rite Aid pharmacy located at 21949 Ventura Boulevard in Woodland Hills, Calif., to discuss the details of this partnership.

“We are excited to announce Heritage Provider Network, one of the leading healthcare providers in California, as the latest Rite Aid Health Alliance partner,” said Martindale. “Known as a pioneer in population health management, Heritage Provider Network has long believed in and offered a wide array of innovative and preventative healthcare services, making them a natural partner for us as we continue to bring this one-of-a-kind healthcare program to the communities we serve.”

Through Rite Aid Health Alliance, Rite Aid and HPN will offer coordinated, comprehensive care and support to patients with chronic and poly-chronic conditions like congestive heart failure, diabetes, COPD, hypertension and high cholesterol. HPN physicians and Rite Aid pharmacists will work with specially trained care coaches, located in select Rite Aid pharmacies, to achieve specific physician identified wellness goals and improve the patient’s overall health and self-management abilities.

“Improving health outcomes and reducing the cost of care for chronic and poly-chronic patients is a top priority for us at HPN,” said Merkin. “We look forward to working with Rite Aid in this collaboration to provide additional care services to our patients in communities throughout Southern California at convenient Rite Aid pharmacies.”

Heritage Provider Network affiliates participating in Rite Aid Health Alliance include Bakersfield Family Medical Center; Coastal Communities Physician Network; Desert Oasis Health Care; High Desert Medical Group; Lakeside Medical Group; Regal Medical Group; Sierra Medical Group, Affiliated Doctors of Orange County as well as Heritage California ACO.
