Atlanta, GA

AMIA 2019 Clinical Informatics Conference is where clinical informaticians and other users, developers and funders of health information technology convene, share, and learn about implementing team-based, integrated healthcare driven by data, evidence, and best practice to improve individual and population health outcomes. 

Lunch & Learn Session:

Solving for Medication Affordability at the Point of Care

Date: May 1 (By invitation only)

Patients and providers today are faced with medication affordability challenges, compounded by the lack of visibility into the patient’s actual out of pocket cost when the provider is writing a prescription.  A new clinical decision support tool, Real-Time Prescription Benefit, delivers patient-specific drug benefit and cost information to the e-prescribing workflow at the point of care. With accurate, up-to-date, patient-specific information, providers can see a the price of the selected medication and quickly choose from available alternatives while remaining in the EHR workflow.  The best practice workflow designs, quantitative financial impact, and lessons learned will be discussed in an interactive manner with the audience.
