VMMC demand creation
CareWorks’ ePharmacy provides an evidence-based and technology-enabled approach to PrEP and ART. Using a courier delivery solution, the ePharmacy meets the unique needs of high-risk individuals whilst reducing access barriers, and increasing retention in care. Our proven solution consistently achieves high rates of adherence and retention in care.
Contact Centre Excellence
Our clinical contact centre is the heart of our ePharmacy. Staffed by experienced case managers, nurses, and counsellors, it provides clients with proactive, ongoing support. Working in mother tongue, they provide peer– and nurse-based telephonic counselling that addresses challenges and barriers. Our outbound approach also operates outside of office hours in all South African languages, ensuring high rates of contactability.
The backbone of our operation is the Care System™, our proprietary patient management software. This centralised electronic database and rules engine securely stores all client information and facilitates data access for monitoring, evaluation, and reporting. Disease management protocols and structured workflows optimise efficiency, guiding our comprehensive care approach.
Courier Pharmacy Service
Medication and testing kits are dispensed directly to the client, or to an external pick-up point. We track parcels throughout this stage. Once received, follow up calls are then made to all clients to provide support.
Proactive Tracing and Support
Our retention in care rates remain consistently high as, over and above our ongoing support services, we also initiate tracing support to defaulting clients.
At CareWorks, we're acutely aware of the challenges of improving retention and adherence rates as well as improving prevention services and linkages. Based on our experience and proven results, the ePharmacy model contributes to a significant improvement in retention and adherence levels and delivers a client centric service, aimed at sustainability for all health and wellness programmes across all performance areas.
VMMC DEMAND CREATION
CareWorks delivers a full demand creation process, from lead generation through field mobilisation and media campaigns, to contact center interventions for logistical and linkage support, consistently achieving high results.
