Syracuse, NY― Helio Health announces the opening of an on-site pharmacy in collaboration with Genoa Healthcare located in Syracuse, NY. Genoa Healthcare is the largest provider of pharmacy, telepsychiatry, and medication management services for individuals with behavioral health or other complex, chronic health conditions.
“The on-site pharmacy will improve access to medication for patients with substance use and or mental health disorders”, says Jeremy Klemanski, President and C.E.O. “People with substance use and mental health disorders sometimes struggle to maintain their medication adherence. Embedding a pharmacy with a treatment program should yield improved medication adherence rates for our patients. This is the second such pharmacy opened on site at a Behavioral Health Outpatient Clinic in New York State. We are happy to provide this to Central New York.”
A 2016 peer-reviewed study published in the Journal of Managed Care and Specialty Pharmacy showed that integrated care models that feature onsite pharmacies produce higher medication adherence rates than community pharmacies, as well as lower rates of hospitalization and lower emergency department utilization. In fact, Genoa’s consumers average more than a 90 percent adherence rate.
The pharmacy is operating at 329 North Salina Street, Syracuse, NY, co-located with the agency’s Certified Community Behavioral Clinic, and will be open Monday through Friday 8:30 AM to 5 PM and closed for lunch from 12:30 PM to 1 PM.
Helio Health promotes recovery from the effects of substance use and mental health disorders through healthcare programs at every stage of the rehabilitation process. SBH programs have helped thousands of families in the Central New York area struggling with behavioral issues.
