eMDs Signs Exclusive Real-Time Benefit Check and Electronic Prior Authorization Agreement with CoverMyMeds

AUSTIN, TX, Jul. 31, 2018 - eMDs, a leading provider of electronic health records (EHR), practice management systems and Revenue Cycle Management services to over 60,000 providers, announced an exclusive partnership with CoverMyMeds to deliver real-time benefit check and electronic prior authorization (ePA). The integration will be available to customers utilizing eMDs Electronic Health Records, including Plus, Practice Partner, Lytec MD, Medisoft Clinical, and Solution Series via RxBenefit Clarity™ and the CoverMyMeds app. The integration also serves as a foundation to implement future innovative solutions without additional development effort.

“Current industry processes for managing prescription benefits and authorizations is inefficient and expensive. It is an administrative burden which takes time away from focusing on patient care,” said Derek Pickell, CEO and Board Director of eMDs. “CoverMyMeds’ real-time benefit check and electronic prior authorization solutions make connecting all areas of the health care network easy to simplify and enhance the prescribing process for our providers. By gathering information from all health care stakeholders in one reliable solution, providers can have trusted conversations with their patients without sifting through multiple platforms or disrupting their current workflow.”

RxBenefit Clarity™ is a real-time benefit check solution that delivers the industry’s most accurate patient pay information for prescriptions across all payers at the point of prescribing. It is the only real-time benefit check solution that partners with all areas of the health care network to display the precise patient pay amount by gathering patient-specific benefit information, including co-pay, insurance deductible, patient assistance programs and prior authorization requirements.

If a prior authorization is required, RxBenefit Clarity enables the provider to view the cost of the prescription in advance and proactively initiate a request electronically for any medication and all health plans, helping to streamline the prescribing process and increase speed to therapy. The solution can also display the cash price of a medication to help ensure the provider and patient can have an informed discussion about what the patient can expect to pay at their preferred pharmacy.

“I already trust the CoverMyMeds portal to submit ePA requests in my practice, so partnering with them to offer prescription decision support and an ePA solution that is totally integrated into the prescribing workflows for our network was a natural fit,” said Eric Weidmann, MD, Chief Medical Officer of eMDs.

“Consistent with our vision to be the leading provider of ‘Healthy Solutions for Healthy Patients, Healthy Practices, and Healthy Resellers,’ we are very focused on helping clinicians ensure the best possible outcomes for their patients. eMDs has a conscious strategy to integrate tightly with best-of-breed partners. CoverMyMeds seamlessly integrates with solutions that incorporate all health care stakeholders, and are a great fit for our customers,” added Mr. Pickell.
