FLORHAM PARK, N.J., April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Asembia, the nation's leading provider of solutions to the specialty pharmacy industry, has partnered with prominent health information network, Surescripts, to enhance electronic Prior Authorization (ePA) services for specialty pharmacy patients.
Although often required by insurance companies for many specialty medications, complex Prior Authorizations (PAs) can unnecessarily delay prescription approvals and the start of therapy. Asembia's comprehensive patient support HUB services include expert assistance for patients and caregivers who are attempting to navigate this process. Asembia's collaboration with Surescripts will enrich ePA services that accelerate PA processing through the company's dynamic specialty pharmacy workflow platform, Asembia1.
"Surescripts has demonstrated dedication and reliability in converting health data into actionable intelligence to lower costs and ensure quality care. Through this collaboration, we continue to raise the bar for patient service and workflow efficiency that will ultimately improve patient outcomes," stated Lawrence Irene, RPh, CEO and co-founder of Asembia.
"Asembia is always working to maximize electronic channels for faster, simpler, and more efficient communications, while maintaining a hyper focus on quality and compliance to ensure patient safety and privacy," said Arpan Patel, RPh, SVP, clinical operations and patient support services at Asembia. "Integrating ePA services with Asembia1 enables pharmacies to accurately expedite and process PAs as well as receive PA status updates from payers," he continued.
As electronic prescribing increasingly gains traction, Asembia continues to expand the company's high-touch patient care and HUB service model. This partnership reinforces the company's ongoing commitment to collaborating with industry partners to further innovate and improve physician and pharmacy communication to meet the needs of physicians and patients.
