Using New Standards, Processes, and Tools to Make Specialty ePrescribing Less “Special”

  • Tuesday, May 9, 2023
  • 2:30 pm – 3:00 pm

Despite the exceptional strides made in ePrescribing over the past 15+ years, specialty medication prescribing, and fulfillment is still largely a manual process, wasting time for prescribers and patients alike. During this session learn how prescribers can quickly and simply electronically prescribe specialty medications based on new standards, processes, and tools to reduce fill time from weeks to hours (in many cases) and give patients greater access to care. The advances made over the last year improve prescriber efficiency, increase patient adherence, reduce frustration for all involved, and help close gaps in care in the specialty medication process. The speakers will discuss how specialty prescribing works and where workflow hurdles exist in today’s processes. They’ll show how the standards have changed since the last NCPDP Annual Conference and what the changes mean for the industry. They will also discuss the handling of patient consent. The process of prescribing and fulfilling specialty medications is evolving through better connectivity, accuracy, and efficiencies for both the prescriber and the patient. With the right enrollment form patient enrollment can be sped up, reauthorizations can be streamlined, and process progress can be monitored, as it is no longer a manual or paper-based process.
