Streamlining care with ScriptVision

Physicians want to focus on patients, not paperwork. That’s why we’ve worked with them to develop ScriptVisionSM, a suite of data-driven capabilities that integrates with electronic health record (EHR) systems and enables prescribers to make better clinical and cost-effective decisions for patients – in real time. You can start today with many vendors! Or, if you need access, contact your EHR or IT administrator for a system upgrade.

Real-time data
Get important patient benefit data prior to e-Prescribing. View patient out-of-pocket costs, coverage alerts and therapeutic options – and avoid having to change a prescription later.
Direct messaging
With immediate access to patient-specific information within your electronic health record, you can make better decisions for your patients, right in the exam room.

Integrated capability
Integrate the information you need into your electronic health record, making it easier than ever for you and your staff to submit electronic prior authorizations (ePAs).

Online ePA portals

Even if you don’t have ePA enabled in your Electronic Health Record (EHR) yet, you can use a secure online portal. It’s faster to send and receive responses, and it works for any prescription drug or pharmacy.
Connect to all PBMs and payers with ePA from Surescripts.® It’s easy to submit ePA requests and you can save valuable time if you haven’t fully integrated ePA into your electronic health record workflow.

CoverMyMeds® is a one-stop solution that works for all medications and all payers.
The ExpressPAth® portal lets you manage prescription drug ePAs for patients with Express Scripts pharmacy benefits, or if your patient’s health plan is part of Care Continuum. Not available for TRICARE® beneficiaries.

Other PA options

If you’re unable to use ePA, there are other ways to submit your PA request.

Our highly-effective, clinically-based NPF is an example of how we make the market work for payers and patients by leveraging competition and directing members to medications with the lowest net cost.

Medicare Part D Formularies
