OptimizeRx Digital Health Platform Adds More than 300 Epic and Cerner Health Systems

OptimizeRx Corp. has established a new partnership that expands its digital communication platform by more than 300 health systems and 75,000 healthcare providers that utilize Electronic Health Records (EHRs) Epic and Cerner.

At an estimated annual cost of $528 billion in 2016 US dollars, medication non-adherence is a focal point of healthcare industry performance improvement efforts. Prescribers within these health systems will now have instant access to real-time patient savings information through OptimizeRx’s cloud-based platform as they are evaluating and prescribing treatments. In addition to Epic and Cerner, the OptimizeRx platform also integrates with Allscripts, NextGen, New Crop, and Amazing Charts, reaching more than 675,000 prescribers directly within their existing digital workflows.

As we start to approach 2021 planning with our clients, the increased need for access to point-of-care communication with affordability tools for physicians and patients has never been so critical. This further expansion into Epic and Cerner systems builds on previous integrations and gives us additional scale in the inpatient care setting.  From within provider workflow, we are able to provide information to support the necessary financial discussions between physicians and patients when selecting treatment.

Will Febbo, CEO of OptimizeRx

Prescription co-pay assistance from pharmaceutical manufacturers isn’t a new concept. Traditionally, co-pay assistance was issued in the form of paper coupon cards. High out-of-pocket prescription drug costs drive non-adherence, with 33% of Americans delaying treatment due to cost in 2019. Although speculatory, this percentage is likely to rise given the current COVID-19 related economic challenges.

Digital health impacts every step in the patient’s care journey. EHRs capture critical moments in the care journey and their reach is expanding. According to DRG’s Taking the Pulse survey, the EHR is a crucial resource used during and between patient consults. Physicians are also increasingly accessing co-pay programs through the EHR as more pharmaceutical brands respond to the changing needs of physicians. The OptimizeRx platform helps fill the adherence and affordability gaps by connecting to the largest EHR network in the U.S. and delivering the right message at the right time. Its proprietary algorithms and multiple levels of engagement improve health outcomes and drive profitability. Through API integration, connected hospitals and health systems have access to the OptimizeRx platform with additional capabilities available through integrations and other direct partnerships.

Health technology will have an even greater impact on prescribing decisions and patient management. Just going electronic isn’t enough. You need to personalize your programs so they target specific groups of patients.
