Our Electronic Prior Authorization program improves the PA process in three key ways:
- It eliminates paperwork because we transmit the PA request through a secure web based platform
- Produces faster determinations through real-time approvals from insurance providers
- Decreases time associated with filling paperwork, and making phone calls to various insurance plans.
This technology improves safety as there is no handwriting for the pharmacist to interpret, meaning there is less potential for errors. It also reduces the number of calls from the pharmacy for clarification on illegible handwriting or cut off orders.
Prescriber Connect also increases efficiency by reducing the amount of time committed to handling faxes and confirmation. This dramatically decreases the time involved in the ordering, processing and delivery of controlled substances.
Metabolic Validation can help reduce unnecessary medications and the risk for adverse drug reactions (ADR). From a simple cheek swab, a healthcare provider can see which medications your body is able to metabolize, eliminating the costly and dangerous trial and error process.
The ultimate goal of Metabolic Validation is to:
- Avoid adverse drug reactions
- Maximize drug efficacy
- Select responsive patients
- Define individualized drug dose
What makes our approach different is the community’s consultant pharmacist, who is independently certified in pharmacogenomic analysis, interprets the test results and makes recommendations to the prescriber tailored to the resident’s individual genetic profile.
