The Good Neighbor Pharmacy Provider Network (formerly the Performance Plus network of independent pharmacies), the largest managed care network of community pharmacies in the nation, has joined clinical information technology provider Mirixa Corp (formerly Community MTM), based in Alexandria, Va, to provide quality patient care programs that obtain premium clinical and business results. The contract brings together ~5000 Good Neighbor Pharmacies and affiliates with Mirixa?s network of more than 40,000 pharmacies, which include independents and chain stores across the country.

Members of the Good Neighbor Pharmacy Provider Network have instant access to managed care contracts and can create a broader base of care in their communities by offering pharmacy benefit management services to health plan buyers. George Saunders, vice president of professional services at AmerisourceBergen, the parent company of the Good Neighbor Pharmacy Provider Network, said, ?One of our primary goals is to arm our customers with new and innovative products and services. This collaboration aligns 2 industry leaders committed to improving patient care by coupling the best clinical technologies with outstanding service levels. Our collective pharmacy customers will be better equipped to deliver a standard of care that truly sets them apart from competition and delivers the best care to patients.?
