RICHMOND, Va., Aug. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- RxEOB, an industry leader in member engagement applications for pharmacy benefits, has authored the case study, "Utilizing RxEOB®MercuryMessaging™ to promote mammograms."
Available now at https://www.rxeob.com/public/resources/rxeobmercurymessaging-case-study/, the RxEOB case study highlights how health care plans wanting to increase the percentage of appropriate patients getting mammograms can do so through better and effective communications using a patient-centric messaging platform.
The American College of Radiology and American Cancer Institute both recommend regular mammograms in women beginning at age 40. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, the percentage of women who receive an annual mammogram is only 65 percent.1
According to the RxEOB case study, "Health plans are interested in improving their mammogram screening rates because it is critical for early detection of breast cancer and for patient health." It goes on to say, "RxEOB®MercuryMessaging™ maximizes the digital connections and does so with minimal message noise and false positives."
When communicating digitally with health plan members, it is all too easy to lose credibility with the audience. When it comes to mammograms, minimizing false positives is critical, and the timeliness of message is vital.
"In an evolving health care delivery system, the burden is now on payers and providers to communicate more effectively," said Robert S. Oscar, CEO of RxEOB. "The industry has evolved to the point where the need to appropriately communicate with patients is paramount. It is all about sending a patient-tailored message at the right time through the patient's preferred communication channel to improve the quality of care but to lower the cost of care for all involved."
Highlights from the case study include how improving screening rates can also mean increased reimbursement for health plans that are subject to STAR ratings.
