Introducing partner pharmacies to ePrescribing’s real-time prescription benefit workflow
One of the best features within our ePrescribing workflow is getting an upgrade—the real-time prescription benefit, which currently allows providers to review a patient’s insurance coverage for prescriptions in real-time. By adding partner pharmacies to this benefit, providers can also see the coverage that is offered for prescriptions at their owned or partner pharmacy or the patient’s preferred pharmacy to see which is cheaper or more convenient for pickup. It adds to the lower cost alternatives and prior authorization details that you see today.
What are the benefits of partner pharmacies?
• Gain visibility into medication pricing from a patients benefit plan and their preferred pharmacy as well as the pharmacy affiliated with the health center, IDN or clinic.
• Increase access and convenience for patients with medical or social needs that are better served by the local, on-site pharmacy.
• Improve medication adherence and speed to therapy for your patients.
Even better, the workflow is so simple in AdvancedMD. First, go to your medications card in the EHR or begin a prescription as you normally would note the real-time prescription benefits within the prescription. The partner pharmacy benefits will automatically show with other real-time prescription benefits.
