Access for More Patients™ Transforms Patient Access to Specialty Medications

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 29 settembre 2019

RxCrossroads by McKesson and CoverMyMeds today announced the launch of AMP: Access for More PatientsTM, a first-in-class, technology-driven patient support solution that transforms how patients access, afford and adhere to their medications. Designed to automate access to specialty medications for physicians and patients, this collaboration brings together the robust technology platform and established provider network of CoverMyMeds with the deep specialty experience and commercialization expertise of RxCrossroads by McKesson.
Innovative therapies designed to treat complex and chronic specialty diseases continue to reach the market1, growing from fewer than 30 specialty medications approved by the FDA in the early 1990s to more than 400 today2,3. The traditional hub model that helps enroll an average of one in five patients into specialty medication access programs has complex requirements and time-consuming manual processes, which, on average, delay treatment by up to eight weeks.Fundamentally changing the way patient support is provided, the proprietary AMP solution enables four out of five patients across the United States to access their specialty medications 27 percent faster than traditional hub programs. By integrating directly into the physician workflow, AMP enables patients to enroll into biopharma-sponsored patient support programs at the point of prescribing, in real-time before the patient leaves the provider’s office. Results published today in an AMP case study found AMP’s ability to capture patient consent in the provider’s office also helped increase patient enrollment completion by 92 percent. AMP also provides high-touch services for patient cases that need intervention support beyond the automated technology platform, such as proactive clinical support, behavioral coaching and financial assistance. These patient-centric programs improve adherence to medication regimens by an average of 10 percent6, helping to support better outcomes for patients. AMP also helps patients manage reimbursement issues, incomplete benefits information, payment denials and appeals, and other exceptions to enable optimal access to medications.

American Oncology Network, LLC (AON) Introduces Specialty Oral Oncolytic Pharmacy

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 26 marzo 2019

The American Oncology Network, LLC (AON), an alliance of physicians and seasoned healthcare leaders, provides a unique array of support services to its affiliated community-based oncology practices, including in-house specialty pharmacy services. The AON Pharmacy streamlines the process of filling prescriptions for cancer patients who are being treated with oral oncolytic medications. According to the Community Oncology Alliance (COA), approximately 25% to 35% of all cancer drugs are currently available in pill form and that percentage is increasing each year.AON CEO Brad Prechtl, MBA, said, “Through the American Oncology Network, community oncology practices across the nation now have access to practice-proven solutions that bring tremendous value and benefit to their patients. The AON Pharmacy is a prime example of this. Pharmacy staff members not only handle the complicated insurance authorization process, they also work with patients and educate them about potential side effects of these powerful cancer drugs and ensure that patients are compliant and understand how to take prescribed medications.”Director of Pharmacy Ray Bailey added, “Our pharmacists are experts in oncology medications and they are available to speak with both patients and physicians, as needed. Through our electronic medical record (EMR), AON pharmacists can view a patient’s chart and then work directly with the patient’s oncologist to best manage any side effects of the oral therapies.”AON Board Member Dr. William Harwin pointed out, “When someone is diagnosed with cancer, he or she doesn’t want to wait several weeks to receive prescribed medications; yet, many of the smaller community oncology practices in the AON network don’t have the infrastructure to provide speedy access to oral oncology drugs. Through the AON Pharmacy, which ships directly to patients’ homes, usually within 48 to 72 hours, patients have easier, more convenient and much faster access to the medications they need.”
