DrChrono Collaborates with CoverMyMeds to Add Electronic Prior Authorization and Prescription Price Transparency at Point of Care
Posted On March 4, 2019
Physician practices can access the best available medication option for patients and will soon be able to process prior authorizations through DrChrono EHR
SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DrChrono Inc., the company enabling the medical practice of the future, announced its expanded partnership with CoverMyMeds to help providers expedite prior authorization processing, gain insight into prescription prices and help patients get the medication they need, when they need it.
DrChrono’s integration with CoverMyMeds includes:
- RxBenefit Clarity™ – RxBenefit Clarity is a medication decision support platform that displays the most accurate prescription price information at the point of prescribing. This is done through comprehensive analysis, including the patient’s co-pay, insurance deductible, price at the patient’s preferred pharmacy, patient assistance programs, pharmacy cash programs and prior authorization requirements. Accurate visibility into prescription price information and available assistance programs helps enable better conversations between providers and their patients to help improve medication adherence.
- Electronic Prior Authorization (coming soon) – Using DrChrono EHR to initiate the process, physicians can soon start and submit prior authorization requests at the point of prescribing and receive electronic determinations through CoverMyMeds. Physicians can quickly locate and submit prior authorization requests for any plan and all medications, including Medicaid and Medicare Part D. This can save practice staff on average up to 15 minutes per prior authorization request and help alleviate administrative burdens associated with the prior authorization process.
- Prior Authorization Support (coming soon)– Once initialized in the EHR, CoverMyMeds provides live electronic prior authorization support to the practice via phone and chat to help ensure that patients get the medications they need. CoverMyMeds’ dedicated support team helps resolve prior authorization issues proactively without burdening physicians or their staff, which helps increase prior authorization success rate and speed to therapy. CoverMyMeds’ team of prior authorization experts also provides comprehensive, on-demand training for employees at the practice.
“This partnership gives providers access to the most accurate real-time benefit check platform and leading electronic prior authorization technology at the point of prescribing, which helps enhance productivity within the EHR platform and enables patients to be more involved in their treatment plans,” said Ryan Tarzy, VP, Strategy and Business Development at CoverMyMeds. “Patients are at the center of everything we do, and our solutions always contribute to our mission of helping patients get the medications they need to be healthy.”
“The DrChrono team believes that getting accurate information about what medications are covered, and at what pricing, during the point of care is paramount,” states DrChrono’s, COO & Co-founder Daniel Kivatinos. “With CoverMyMeds, DrChrono now brings real-time prescription price transparency to providers’ fingertips. Patients should know what is covered and how much a medication will cost before leaving the doctor’s office to pick it up at the local pharmacy, and CoverMyMeds is enabling this within DrChrono.”
