Drug Assistant can help you restock medications that were given to indigent patients, leading to a substantial reduction in charity care spending. We can then support a maintenance medication program for outpatients. This is a best practice and the only way to address both patient care cost and the cost of medications given to the indigent. Over time, this approach will provide better health and reduce hospital visits by the indigent. See case study link that shows reduction in self-pay E.R. visit by 31.85% and reduction in Hospital Admissions of 46.03% respectively.
Implementation, Training and Ongoing Support:
We provide program build out, analysis, consultation, implementation, training, metrics, software and remote staff support by a dedicated account manager. Drug Assistant will manage and oversee the implementation of all new projects. Our team will review goals and objectives, including development of a target drug list. We also establish preliminary financial objectives along with a timeline. Firm, detailed objectives for each location will be set after analysis by Drug Assistant. Hospital policies and procedures are reviewed as they relate to Drug Assistant's work. The account manager oversees weekly meetings to support hospital staff. All reporting and metrics are available within our software system, including multisite business office reporting.
Our system has the ability to locate patient and utilization information as well as demographic information required by the manufacturer programs. Potential patients are identified based on payer class and target drugs. New Patient information is imported, creating a patient profile. Applications are generated by the system.History is maintained for audits and reports. Our multi-site system is the only offering with the ability to connect multiple locations; each client decides which locations will share information. This functionality allows for patient sharing, transfer of patient information between locations and centralization of the program. Reporting for the entire multi-site network can be managed at each site as well as at the business office level reporting. The system can export data into multiple formats. Managers have the ability to control access and entry rights for each organization and each user. The program coordinates the entire effort in an easy to use format.
