Walgreen Co. has entered into a collaborative agreement to provide expanded services for Arizona Priority Care, the Phoenix-area affiliate of Marina del Rey, Calif.-based Heritage Provider Network.

The retail pharmacy chain, which recently entered into a pact to work on “innovative models of care” with Livonia, Mich.-based CHE Trinity Health, will be providing population health services such as medication management, health assessment, health testing and immunizations for 19,000 of Arizona Priority Care's Medicare Advantage and accountable care organization patients.

Ron Weinert, Walgreen vice president for accountable care services, told Modern Healthcare the collaboration between his company and Arizona Priority Care, or AzPC, goes beyond other health system-retail clinic operator agreements.

“What's different is the service we are providing is very targeted, coordinated and connected,” Weinert said, explaining that Walgreen pharmacists and retail clinic staff will be doing outreach to bring patients into stores and clinics for needed care. “It's based on gaps in care.” —Andis Robeznieks
