This is great news! Why you may ask? It is usually quite difficult to know the cost of medication for the patient when the provider enters it into the electronic health record (EHR). This leads to sticker price shock at the pharmacy. And no, it is certainly not the fault of the pharmacy or pharmacist. Please do not shoot the messenger.
One of the major health information technology companies, Cerner, has collaborated with CoverMyMeds to integrate prescription princes into the electronic health record so both providers and patients can know the cost of medication before is prescribed. Also, know the price allows for a more informed decision on all fronts. Genius!! Time saved and frustrations minimized. Please click on the link below to learn more about his exciting collaboration. Wishing you a great week!
