Today is a Good Day

Posted by 664337 Employee Aug 7, 2018

Today is not Monday.  That is a good thing.  Today is Taco Tuesday, that is a good thing.  But some might say, oh Friday is so far away.............. It may seem like that, but I wonder why we are always wishing the days away.  Why do we want every day to be Friday?  Can you imagine if each week was made up of that one day we love so much and then its the weekend again?  How fast time would go by, how quickly those little ones in our lives would be growing up, how quickly the seasons of our lives would pass.  Enjoy the day, find the joy in it.  Friday is just one day of a week filled with promise and hope.  Don't wish you days away, embrace them with gusto and realize that you are on a mission every single day.

The State of Man

Posted by 664337 Employee Apr 16, 2018

Did anyone watch the hearings last week with Mark Zuckerberg?  I found it pretty enlightening and it created this sense of "where are we headed" type thinking.  Social Media, its so prevalent in our culture.  We connect with virtual strangers all over the place to have "meaningful" relationships.  I see some of my "friends" on FB bragging about how large their "friend list" is.  we give way too much information over the web about ourselves and then shake our fists at the lack of privacy we have on the net.  I am in awe of the things you can buy, sell or trade through social media, some things I never would have sought after.  Which brings me to the state of man?  Who are we anymore?  What is important to us? Do we connect with real live people anymore?  I realize that as I write this, I am trying to "connect" with people I don't know, but I have been seriously pondering this for the past week.  I try to have a monthly gathering of ladies at my house and do you know how hard it is to get even 2 people to commit?  everyone is "so busy" living life that the only way I can connect with actual friends is through social media.  I miss the days of coffee klatches, lunch dates, and just hanging out, catching up.  I mean to sit across from someone, look at them, see their eyes, notice their clothing, their hair, everything about them.  We cannot do that through the web.  I am trying my hardest in this wicked world to change things in my little circle and I would like to see others try to do this too.  We know the whole ripple in a pond idea, so lets be the ripples, lets make some waves and in the process become human again.  How many times have you checked the box "I am not a robot" ?  Did you ever stop to ask yourself why they do that?  If you keep up with the AI technology and where we are headed in that direction, you might understand.  But then I think, since AI's get smarter as they progress, would they not be able at some point to check that box?  Anyway, something to ponder as you go through your day and I hope you too will become a ripple in the water, shaking things up a bit.

Express Scripts launches discount drug service

MAY 9, 2017 | BY BRIAN BERK

 ST. LOUIS — Express Scripts on Monday launched Inside Rx, a new, partially owned subsidiary that applies Express Scripts' purchasing power to expand affordable access to brand and generic medications for patients in need. According to Express Scripts, Inside Rx has partnered with GoodRx to deliver average savings of 34% on prescription medications for the uninsured and those who experience high out-of-pocket costs for their prescription medications.

Patients can visit www.goodrx/brand or download the GoodRx mobile app to instantly access significant savings for more than 40 popular brand name drugs that treat diabetes, asthma, heart disease, depression, gastrointestinal disorders, gout, and other common illnesses. Eligible patients simply present the discount via card or mobile app at one of 40,000 pharmacies nationwide, including CVS, the Kroger Family of Pharmacies and Walgreens. There are no membership fees or costs to obtain savings.

"We have a unique opportunity to put medicine within reach of those who need it. By practicing pharmacy smarter, we are bringing together companies across healthcare to truly deliver value," said Express Scripts president and CEO Tim Wentworth. "We are proud to power a novel solution that makes brand-name medicines more affordable and accessible, particularly for people without prescription coverage."

The program represents a cross-industry collaboration among Inside Rx, GoodRx, participating retail pharmacies, and major pharmaceutical companies, including Boehringer Ingelheim, Eli Lilly, Lundbeck, Novo Nordisk, Sanofi, Takeda Pharmaceuticals and Teva Pharmaceuticals. 

"The GoodRx / Inside Rx program is a simple and effective way to help millions of Americans who struggle to afford their prescriptions," said Doug Hirsch, co-founder and co-CEO of GoodRx. "GoodRx is proud to partner with Inside Rx to reduce the cost of diabetes, asthma and other important drugs that patients need."

"We are pleased to participate in Express Scripts' new program that will play an important role in helping under-insured and uninsured patients receive the medicines they need at a price they can afford," said Brad Fluegel, SVP, chief healthcare commercial market development officer, Walgreens.

"Kroger is excited to partner with Express Scripts on this new program that creates affordability and expands access to medications for many of our patients," said Colleen Lindholz, president of pharmacy and The Little Clinic, The Kroger Co.

Inside Rx is not insurance, and is not available to members enrolled in government-sponsored health programs, such as Medicare, Medicaid or Tricare.

My Moment of Impact

Posted by 3775213 Administrator Apr 3, 2017

My "moment of impact" occurred during a recent music program when a hospice resident who is no longer able to speak began singing the words to "Bye, Bye Blackbird."  

As part of our Relias Gives Back program this year, employees are visiting local clients offering free car washes or chair massages to their employees as a way of saying "thank you" for the hard work and dedication they show each and every day to your residents.  

Employees at Woodland Terrace enjoyed cake pops, car washes while our own music therapist, Kate Geouge led a sing along for their memory care and assisted living residents.  The day was filled with music, dancing and lots of memories.  It was so rewarding to see residents with memory care begin singing along to the words they remembered from long ago.  

What is your moment of impact?  Share your story with us.

Starbucks OR Dunkin' Donuts?

Posted by 5692256 Employee Feb 17, 2017

Okay so I know most people are thinking what in the heck?? Why does someone want to know this.. Hear me out!!

I'm asking because, 99.9% of us on here are working in health care careers or teaching or some type of job that requires an early morning CORRECT?! AND we all need that morning "pick me up" because "I don't want to be up yet" but "I need some energy" or "it's going to be one of those types of days"

 

WELL!! Now tell me what place you like your morning coffee from & what your absolute favorite flavor of coffee to drink is!?

 

(This is just a fun conversation, ENJOY!!)

 

I enjoy personally, to go into starbucks, and get myself a Vanilla Bean Creme' Frappuccino!! YUMMY!!

Have a great day everyone!!!
