Cutting Pharmacy Costs

1Price Reconciliation

Fluctuating drug prices and human error can result in significant price discrepancies for LTC facilities. We offer both front-end, point-of-sale adjudication and back-end reconciliation reporting to ensure that facilities are able to enforce contract rules and pricing, regardless of the ability of their pharmacy to adjudicate claims.

2Reporting

Our reporting tools allow operators to cut costs and ensure accountability. SRX integrates all aspects of the complex data that impact monthly bills including EHRs/EMRs, drug pricing, pharmacy contract terms, formulary criteria, etc. Automated analysis then generates monthly/quarterly reports that identify opportunities for credits and returns or cost savings.

3Drug Utilization Improvement

SRX works with facilities to establish care-driven, cost-effective formularies. Automated checks and balances prevent unnecessary costs, increase transparency, ensure compliance, and put post-acute care facilities in charge of their pharmacy relationships. SRX formulary management services result in significant savings and additional rebates. As rebates and drug pricing are always in flux, SRX offers ongoing advisory services to maintain lowest net cost for operators.

  • Hold P&T meetings with C-suite executives to determine facility formulary based on lowest net cost.
  • Implement Therapeutic Interchanges
  • Adjudication (when possible)
  • Identify clinical personnel who drive Part A orders
  • Track MDs needed to approve facility formulary
