Cary, NC, June 2, 2015 – TrialCard announced today that it is partnering with Practice Fusion, the nation’s largest cloud-based electronic health record (EHR) platform, to incorporate its patient affordability solutions into the Practice Fusion system. By virtue of this partnership, more than 112,000 active health care professionals using the Practice Fusion platform will have access to the free trial and copay savings offers on over 140 medications across all therapeutic classes, and be able to instantly transmit them to the patient’s pharmacy of choice with their prescription.
“EHR-based affordability solutions improve the overall patient experience while also reducing the logistical burdens and costs associated with physical offers,” said Burke Williams, TrialCard’s Vice President of Business Development. “By joining forces with Practice Fusion to leverage their industry-leading technology, we’re making huge strides in helping our clients tackle a significant issue that affects all segments of the population, adherence to medication.”
With the costs of non-adherence, both in terms of increased healthcare spending as well as lost revenue for manufacturers, escalating into the hundreds of billions of dollars, finding efficient ways to drive greater persistence among patients has become a key focus area throughout the healthcare industry.
“With nearly 4 million prescriptions a month on the Practice Fusion platform, this integration has the potential to impact medication adherence for millions of patients,” said Tom Langan, Practice Fusion Chief Commercial Officer. “Partnering with TrialCard will further empower our community of health care professionals in improving patient outcomes.”
“Streamlining the patient’s path to savings is a direct means to combating non-adherence,” added TrialCard President and CEO Mark Bouck. “We’re very excited to partner with Practice Fusion to deliver a service that will have a tremendous impact in this area.”
