New Offering from CoverMyMeds and RelayHealth Pharmacy Solutions Will Provide Accurate Prescription Price Information, Prescribing Decision Support and Streamlined Medication Access
CHICAGO, Oct. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, Allscripts (NASDAQ:MDRX), a global leader in health care technology, and CoverMyMeds announced the expansion of their longstanding partnership with the integration of RxBenefit Clarity™, a real-time benefit check solution, offered by CoverMyMeds and RelayHealth Pharmacy Solutions, that delivers accurate patient out-of-pocket payment detail for prescriptions across the payer ecosystem at the time the prescription is written.
“We’ve learned from the overwhelming adoption of our electronic prior authorization solution, providers want simplicity, consistency, accuracy and efficiency in the tools they use to treat their patients,” said Glenn Wada, President of CoverMyMeds. “Through our RxBenefit Clarity partnership with Allscripts, one of the largest EHRs in the market, we are fulfilling that need by uniting all areas of the health care industry—all payers, all retail pharmacies and all medications—to create an aggregated one-stop shop for providers. Helping patients get the medications they need to live healthy lives is at the core of everything we do, and we’re thrilled to be accelerating that vision through our work with Allscripts.”
RxBenefit Clarity is designed to display coverage information based on the patient’s health plan as well as the patient’s pharmacy of choice. By gathering information from a wide range of industry stakeholders, RxBenefit Clarity can accurately present patient-specific out-of-pocket prescription costs, including the cash prescription cost if the patient’s preferred pharmacy has a cash price program, and help address prior authorization requirements. The solution also helps address gaps potentially found within other real-time benefit check offerings, as the all-network solution complements direct-to-payer connections.
Allscripts and CoverMyMeds are actively engaged in development of integration between RxBenefit Clarity and Allscripts Prescription Price Transparency in Allscripts ePrescribe, Allscripts Professional EHR™, and Allscripts TouchWorks® EHR.
“Allscripts is proud to partner with CoverMyMeds and RelayHealth Pharmacy Solutions as we continue to build on our commitment to helping providers and industry partners unlock the potential of their data to improve patients’ lives,” said Tom Langan, CEO, of Payer & Life Sciences at Allscripts. “In combination with our other partners, RxBenefit Clarity can enable Allscripts’ providers to quickly and easily identify the true out-of-pocket medication cost, specific to each patient’s pharmacy benefit and their pharmacy of choice.”
The integration of RxBenefit Clarity is the latest advance in medication access and affordability from Allscripts Prescription Price Transparency, which continues to deliver advanced new solutions to empower physicians and patients with real time comprehensive drug price information, at the point of patient care, designed to optimize the clinical and financial impact of each prescription. Allscripts Prescription Price Transparency is just one of Allscripts portfolio of ePrescribing solutions, designed to strengthen the ability of healthcare professionals to meet the challenges of emerging regulations and requirements related to Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS), Electronic Prior Authorization (ePA), and Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMP), among others.
