Real-Time Prescription Benefit embeds Patient-specific benefit information into the prescribing workflow. Bringing actionable intelligence to the point of care gives you access to up-to-date benefit details, price information, and viable alternatives.
With true prescription price transparency and informing their decisions, Physicians will be empowered to prescribe the exact right prescription, increasing the Patients’ confidence in the cost of their therapy and more likely to adhere to it.
Real-Time Prescription Benefit delivers actionable Patient intelligence through a simple process within the EHR workflow.
You will have cost, source, and supply options at your fingertips from the very first conversation, allowing you to provide Patients with a transparent view of the price implications. After agreeing with the Patient on the exact right medication, you will write the prescription and send it electronically to the Pharmacy.
This solution indicates whether a prior authorization is required, gives you the power to choose an alternative therapy, and avoids the prior authorization process altogether. The Patients will visit the Pharmacy, pick up their prescription, and pay the amount they expect. No stress and obstacles to successful adherence.
The 'Pricing Details in Pharmacy' section displays the estimated pricing in the chosen Pharmacy and other types of Pharmacies with their pricing comparison. For example, if the requested Pharmacy is retail and the medication is available at the requested retail, then the PBM will show retail pricing and may also show pricing at specialty mail. Coverage factors like the Prior-Auth requirement can be viewed by clicking the ‘Coverage’ option against each Pharmacy type.
If the PBM suggests any clinically approved alternatives for the given medication, alternatives will get listed along with the Pharmacy types. Estimated pricing and coverage details of the alternative prescriptions and Pharmacies can be seen in this view.
Based on your clinical guidance and a discussion with the patient, you can decide to prescribe the same drug or change an alternate drug to a cost-effective Pharmacy. The 'Change' buttons in the pricing list view will be used to change the Drug/Pharmacy details.
Changing with the alternatives will pick the corresponding alternative as prescribing drugs. The final prescription can be added, signed, and transmitted electronically.
If the Patient has multiple health insurance plans and needs to check the pricing benefit for another plan, the insurance plan can be changed from the Add Prescription view using the 'Change Health Plan' link at the top of the view next to the 'Benefit Plan'.
This action will take us to a formulary view to change the insurance plan. Changing insurance plans and proceeding will once again call the RTPB request to get pricing details for the chosen health plan with the other prescription details. This process will again follow the same workflow as defined in the above section (#RTPB Work Flow in Charm EHR).
Currently, the RTPB service is being supported by the below PBMs. If the Patient's PBM fall under any of these PBMs, pricing details will be available on the prescription.
