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.

“A lot of miscommunication about medications happens because of a lack of interoperability. The retail pharmacy might have a different electronic record than the hospital uses, and primary care uses something different. With the help of DrFirst, we are integrating our inpatient data and the outpatient data to get the most accurate list for the patient.”

“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.”
