Unless you have staffing devoted to monitoring the latest recommendations, it’s likely any renewal protocols you have in place will quickly become outdated, which can result in poor quality patient care. Additionally, communication about safety alerts is inconsistent, which makes it even harder to ensure protocols are maintained properly. A ...

  • 3 Trailblazers Leading The Way In Prescription Renewal Optimization
    At healthfinch, we’ve seen health systems process prescription renewal requests in all kinds of ways. Some have providers reviewing all their patients’ renewals, others have a clinical team that triages them for providers, and some have written protocols and workflows for staff to follow.

  • Could obsolete drugs be causing your claims denials?
    A strange chain of events showed me how different departments view information. I was recently working with a client and showing them issues they had in their build of Millennium™ PharmNet application. These are some of the normal things reviewed: QCF issues – when converting doses based on the units of measure outlined by CMS, you need to use the Quantity Calculation Factor to convert to the correct measurements (e.g. 1 mg per 1 ml = 1 QCF).

  • Piloting a Centralized Prescription Renewal Workflow
    Many organizations are turning towards a delegation model in which some of their providers’ more routine tasks are processed by a centralized team rather than in the clinic. Doing so offers the best opportunity for ensuring quality, efficiency, and improved revenues - not to mention a reduction in provider burnout caused by excess administrative work. One of the most common tasks that gets delegated to a centralized team is prescription renewal requests because they can be protocolized and...
