BestRx Announces the Release of Real-Time Prescription Benefit Check for Pharmacies

OAK BROOK, Ill., April 14, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- BestRx, a digital pharmacy management software company, is proud to announce they are the first pharmacy software system, in collaboration with a trusted partner, to offer Real-Time Prescription Benefit (RTPB) functionality for pharmacies. The RTPB tool enables accurate and complete, patient-specific benefit information from the point-of-prescribing to the point-of-dispensing; allowing for better informed provider and patient medication choices, awareness of lower-cost medication options for patients and potential to improve medication adherence.

The RTPB feature is automatically integrated into the pharmacy's existing workflow. Now, without having to run test claims, pharmacists can find the most appropriate and cost-effective medication treatment options for patients based on their specific formulary and benefit coverage. In addition, the Real-Time Prescription Benefit tool allows pharmacists to identify details about: prior authorizations, lower-cost alternative medications and patient's out-of-pocket costs. As a result, pharmacies can help reduce medication abandonment and increase better health outcomes for patients.

"The Real-Time Prescription Benefit tool is going to be a game-changer for pharmacies" says Hemal Desai, President of BestRx. "It will give pharmacists the data they need to make educated decisions to make sure their patients are receiving the medications and treatments that are right for them. I have personally seen the feature in action at one of our client pharmacies, and in one instance, the pharmacy was given information that allowed them to switch a patient from a 30-day to a 90-day supply, which will result in the patient saving over $800 per year in copays on that medication alone. The days of blindly sending test claims to find the right treatment are over, and Real-Time Prescription Benefit is the future."

This feature has already been rolled out to all pharmacies using the BestRx Pharmacy Management System and will be offered free-of-charge until the end of 2020.
