What is PreCheck MyScript?

PreCheck MyScript is an innovative service available through Point of Care Assist.

PreCheck MyScript benefits your practice by enabling doctors to view prescription costs in real time, potentially obtaining prior authorizations before the patient leaves the exam room and integrating directly with the practice’s existing EMR platform.

And that’s not all.

With PreCheck MyScript, patients saved an average of $225 per prescription, when lower cost alternative drugs suggested by PreCheck MyScript were selected.

Providers can save too, up to 50 minutes and $41 per prescription per patient by avoiding prior authorization.

In most of prescribing occasions, when a Tier 3 drug was prescribed, PreCheck MyScript suggested alternatives.

This resulted in physicians switching to a Tier 1 or 2 drug when available, saving the patient money.

Patient medication adherence increased by up to 4% for diabetes, 4% for hypercholesterolemia and 2% for hypertension.

And patients whose physicians used PreCheck MyScript were 23% more likely to obtain their medications than those whose physicians did not use the tool.

With improved interoperability, you’ll have the tools and information you need, when you need them, to make a difference in the lives of individuals.

This is only the beginning, there’s a lot more to do. That’s why we’re in this together. Let’s change the course of healthcare.
