Help Patients Start and Stay on Therapy

When patients don’t take their medicine, the results can be costly. The good news is it doesn’t have to be that way.

Real-Time Price Transparency 

Patients don’t take medicines they can’t afford. To avoid sticker shock at the pharmacy counter, clinicians need real-time access to patients’ benefits and out-of-pocket costs during a patient visit. DrFirst was the first in the industry to provide price transparency to healthcare providers and has processed more than 134 million transactions since 2015.

“Putting patients’ out-of-pocket cost information in front of clinicians at the point of prescribing provides the opportunity to prevent a common barrier…. Enabling providers to initiate that conversation promotes better rapport, cost-effectiveness, and may ultimately save lives.”
