Education Track Session:
Prescription Decision Support at the Point of Prescribing
As enrollment in high-deductible healthcare plans increases, high prescription costs are becoming the new norm for many patients. This medication price hike can lead to prescription abandonment, ultimately endangering patient health. In 2018 alone, an estimated 140 million prescriptions were abandoned.1 This session will outline why prescribers need cost-transparency functionality, the different implementation models available in EHRs and highlights from a recent case study that illustrate how one implementation model led to fewer surprises at the pharmacy and better therapy adherence.
