OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Jan. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Keeping track of just one prescription drug and remembering to take it as directed can be difficult. Multiple medications compound the challenge, as well as the risk of non-adherence or harmful interactions. Rx Savings Solutions members now have a powerful partner at their side.
Rx Savings Solutions, a leading transparency solution, arms health insurers and self-funded employers with options to drive down the most predictable and repeated spend in healthcare—pharmacy. More than 2 million members have access to the online tool.
The launch of the Medicine Cabinet feature allows members to organize all their medications in one place, as well as those for any minor dependents. Users of the desktop portal or mobile app may also download, print and/or send a complete medication list prior to a doctor visit or for access at the pharmacy counter.
The companion Medication Reminders feature enables members to set convenient prompts for taking each medication on schedule. Reminders are designed to add ease and simplicity to adhering to a member's medication regimen and can be received via email or text on the device of their choosing.
Both features are fed by an automatic import of members' prescription claims data, eliminating any manual entry or barrier to use.
Another major addition to the recent launch gives members the ability to send an email from Rx Savings Solutions to adult dependents informing them when they have savings opportunities. Because HIPAA regulations prevent members from viewing prescription information for any dependent age 18 or over, the new feature delivers a message to adult dependents prompting them to activate their own accounts in order to take advantage of the savings found.
"Medication adherence is critically important to effectively managing chronic and temporary conditions, as well our overall health and well-being," said Michael Rea, PharmD, founder and CEO of Rx Savings Solutions. "We're giving our members an easy way to stay on track with everything in their medicine cabinet, for every member of the family."
Rx Savings Solutions' system is HIPAA security compliant. All interaction between the software platform and the employee is confidential. Rx Savings Solutions is without bias and delivers the most accurate, cost-effective data to subscribers based solely on the location and medication needs of each user.
