WARMINISTER, Pa., March 19, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today AdvanceNet Health Solutions, Inc. (ANSHealth) announced a partnership with CoverMyMeds (CMM) to provide an automated prior authorization (PA) solution through its open source, enterprise pharmacy management software, ePostRx. Automating the PA process for pharmacists reduces administrative burden and improves turnaround time for determinations, helping patients get their medications as fast as possible.
"ANSHealth is proud to partner with CoverMyMeds to continue to provide systems and solutions to more efficiently process prescriptions," said Tom Corrigan, Vice President of Business Development for ANSHealth. "Our clients are currently processing upwards of 150,000 prescriptions per day on our software solution and the prior authorization process has always been a very manual, time consuming task. CoverMyMeds provides our clients with an automated solution to reduce prescription abandonment and increase patient satisfaction."
When an ePostRx user receives a rejection notice that a prior authorization is required, the CMM integration can seamlessly use patient demographics and prescription details to choose and populate the correct PA request before sending it to the patient's health insurance plan directly or, if necessary, to the prescriber to complete and send.
"More than 80 percent of the pharmacies in the U.S. use CoverMyMeds to fill more prescriptions and help patients adhere to their prescribed therapies," said CoverMyMeds co-founder, Matt Scantland. "We are pleased to work with ANSHealth to provide this cost-free service to their open source platform which will improve workflow for their customers and ensure patients get their medications quickly."
CoverMyMeds is the industry leader in prior authorization (PA), and the first step in patient adherence. Prescribers and pharmacies have submitted over 8.5 million prior authorization requests —and other coverage determinations—through our automated system, and we were recently named the 8th fastest growing healthcare company in the country by Inc. 500|5000.
