Electronic Prior Authorization Program to Help Patients Get Faster Access to Prescription Medication
Date:5/1/2009

to embrace a more efficient and effective manner of sharing critical prescribing information," said Dr. Troyen Brennan, CVS Caremark's Chief Medical Officer and Executive Vice President. "We are building best practices for consumer care through our eHealth programs and products and in partnership with clients such as BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee and Horizon BCBS of New Jersey."

Prescriber recruitment for the ePA pilot began in April in Tennessee, and will be followed shortly by outreach efforts in New Jersey. The pilot is anticipated to run for six months.

About iScribe e-Prescribing

iScribe e-prescribing allows prescribers to send prescriptions securely and directly to the patient's pharmacy of choice from either a handheld PDA or desktop computer. iScribe meets the qualifications set by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for the 2009 incentives provided through the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act, and is compliant with the CMS Part-D standards for e-prescribing.

iScribe provides the prescriber with generic and formulary coverage and alternative information, assisting the physician in selecting the most cost-effective medication for their patients. Physicians can use the electronic prescribing tools to write prescriptions for all of their patients, regardless of the patient's prescription benefit coverage. Physicians can check for potentially harmful drug interactions at the point of prescribing, or follow-up with patients when iScribe alerts them to unfilled prescriptions. The convenience of a mobile device ensures patient prescriber history is with them at all times -- either in the office or when the prescriber is on-call. iScribe electronic prescribing helps to reduce phone calls and faxes between the practice and the pharmacy, improve patient safety and drive better medication compliance.
