No matter what field of medicine you practice, treating patients today goes far beyond diagnosis and treatment. Clinicians are expected to know the cost of prescription medications and a multitude of insurance coverages, all the while deploying staff to tackle mountains of paperwork and prior authorizations without reimbursement.
The average clinician receives between 5-10 phone calls, faxes, and messages per day relating to patient prescriptions. Many come from frustrated patients and pharmacies requesting alternative medications and more affordable prescriptions. These requests delay care and use up valuable nursing and staff resources that doctors dedicate at their own expense.
Avoid the game of broken telephone. By sending patient prescriptions electronically to RxThat, patients manage their prescriptions themselves from their mobile devices. Patients can find the best price of their prescriptions, apply rebate cards, and find the pharmacy that serves them best. Reduce your administrative workload and treat patients, not paperwork.
Imagine a day without a call about a prescription clarification. RxThat allows patients to see the cost of their prescriptions, choose their fulfilling pharmacy, and check the status of their script so they know when it’s ready to be filled. RxThat assists with prior authorizations and even accesses your personalized standing orders to permit substitutions without contacting your office.
Patients are able to see the price of their medication at multiple local pharmacies in real-time, while sitting in your office. RxThat works with all commercial insurance types, Medicare and Medicaid, as well as supplying cash prices for uninsured patients. If price is a barrier, clinicians have an opportunity to intervene and send a substitute, to make sure patients get the treatment that they need.
With your prescribing formulary, patients can select an approved alternative medication when their prescription is too expensive. We call this our Virtual Medical Assistant©. Use the suggested formulary designed by RxThat clinicians, or customize your formulary to create “standing orders” for substitutions based on your personal specifications. Patients and pharmacists will not have to contact your office to find a cheaper alternative.
