GemCare Wellness and our sister company, Edwards Health Care Services, represent one of the largest diabetes suppliers in the country. We have proven that a successful diabetes compliance program must include continuous communication with each patient from the moment a supply order is filled and continue during the monitoring and reordering process.
Our Diabetes Care Path:
Our Diabetes Care Path and team of diabetes specialists including Registered Dietitians, Certified Diabetes Educators, and Registered Nurses follows each patient along the continuum of care to provide education, support, and tools to help our patients to better manage their condition, prevent complications, and maintain optimum health.

GemCare Wellness can be utilized as an integral piece in the overall success of disease management. It is a population health strategy as well as an approach to personal health that requires knowledge sharing and knowledge building.
According to Public Health Reports, 75% of Americans have trouble taking their medicine as directed. This lack of adherence causes approximately 125,000 deaths in the United States with an estimated total cost of 100-300 billion dollars every year. Research shows that Medication Therapy Management (MTM) improves medication adherence resulting in less deaths and immense cost savings.
GemCare Wellness has long recognized the significance and need to bring MTM to the forefront of a patient’s care path. MTM is a medical service provided by pharmacists whose aim is to optimize medication therapy and therapeutic outcomes for patients to improve the overall quality of life.
GEM Edwards Pharmacists use a systematic process to collect patient specific information and create a comprehensive medication list. Next they evaluate the medication therapies to identify complications. Finally, they create a prioritized list of medication-related issues as well as a medication action plan (MAP) to resolve the issues.
GemCare Wellness recognizes that health, job performance, and overall well-being can be significantly affected by each individual’s unique personal issues.

These issues include:
GemCare Wellness is able to provide access to EAP services through a selection of partners to deliver this confidential, affordable, and effective benefit that can represent a key difference in many lives. GemCare considers EAP services a critical resource as part of a complete health coaching program.

Linking available cost efficient applications that will lead to effective savings can too often be construed as being too complicated or requiring too much work to implement. GemCare clients benefit from our expertise and experience in implementing practical applications and programs that generate measurable health improvement outcomes as well as premium advantages from insurance carriers.
GemCare Wellness can design and implement a full Telehealth program for disease states such as Congestive Heart Failure, Diabetes Management or any other chronic disease requiring daily or monthly monitoring. Through the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies, GemCare Wellness can meet your specific needs by utilizing at home devices with cloud-based technology, allowing patients to be monitored for any specific condition or concern. Patients are then monitored and/or contacted by our certified Healthcare Professionals for counseling or referral to a physician.
Our real-time communication will help to maintain as well as improve the contact between the patient and the medical system by filling the gaps in care and providing an efficient means for both the patient and healthcare provider to monitor the health of patients. The Telehealth program we provide can drive cost-efficiency and enable medical personnel to better manage the growing population of patients living with chronic conditions.
