PLATTSBURGH — Price Chopper Supermarkets was one of 25 pharmacy operators, only two of which were supermarkets, to receive national recognition from the American Pharmacists Association Foundation’s Project IMPACT: Diabetes for the role that the chain has played in helping to improve care for people affected by diabetes across the United States.
Through the project, Price Chopper Pharmacy developed a comprehensive diabetes-care program that aligned with other Price Chopper initiatives such as the Diabetes AdvantEdge program, which provides patients with free diabetes medication, supplies and a testing meter.
Price Chopper’s use of the NuVal Nutrition Scoring system was also critical to the success of this initiative as it helped patients make healthier food choices. These resources helped ensure that patients and shoppers can always access assistance to improve their nutrition and diabetes management.
“The Affordable Care Act has expanded our opportunities to collaborate with our community health-care partners in providing cost-effective care and improving patient outcomes. Our participation in Project IMPACT: Diabetes has allowed us to offer innovative healthcare program models, which align nicely with this goal,” said Kathy Bryant, Price Chopper’s vice president of pharmacy.
