Improving Patient Outcomes with Real-Time Prescription Benefit

Patient talks with doctor

In the evolving world of healthcare, it is necessary for physicians to have digital access to patient information the moment they need it.

Express Scripts provides real time, patient-specific pharmacy data on TRICARE beneficiaries to physicians who have the Real-Time Prescription Benefit functionality in their electronic health record (EHR). Physicians can see a holistic view of their patients’ profiles and the best prescribing options for them.

The Real-Time Prescription Benefit capability is integrated into the e-prescribing process. Prior to prescribing medication for a patient, it gives physicians access to:

  • Patient out-of-pocket costs
  • Coverage alerts
  • Therapeutic options
  • Pharmacy choices

Within seconds, the prescriber will see true prescription coverage information and pricing, helping them prescribe the right prescription for their patient. Patients gain confidence in their medication therapy and the costs associated with it. Physicians benefit by reducing wait times and getting medicine to patients more efficiently.

For physicians without EHR access, Express Scripts offers the Scriptvision® Physician app, where physicians can quickly access their patients’ prescription benefit information, directly on their iOS mobile device. Physicians can download and register with the app with their iPhone® or iPad® mobile device to get started.
