Recent studies have revealed alarming statistics surrounding low medication adherence. For example, 33% of patients have purposely missed filling a prescription due to its prohibitive cost.1 And nearly 6% of patients have skipped taking their medications three times or more.1
Patient outcomes may improve if it were easier to ensure patients stay on their prescribed medication regimen by knowing the cost before they leave their doctor’s office. Higher out-of-pocket cost of prescription medications have been shown to correlate with increased prescribed prescription abandonment. With patients incurring a higher share of their healthcare costs, Veradigm’s RxTruePrice can help the 42% of Americans, who have reported they are struggling to pay for their necessary medication, gain a clearer view into pricing. 1
A recent Veradigm fielded study found that six out of ten RxTruePrice users have observed an overall improvement in patient prescription medication adherence since launching the solution.2 Users also felt that the availability of pricing data within their regular workflow held the potential to help them improve medication adherence as compared to alternate solutions, such as sponsored patient support programs and patient reminders.2
Used by tens of thousands of providers for tens of millions of price transparency transactions, Veradigm RxTruePrice provides users access to discounted health plan or pharmacy-benefit pricing, cash pricing, therapeutic alternatives and competitive prices at local and mail-order pharmacies. Further, all information is specific to each individual patient and is accessible in the provider’s e-prescribing workflow.
“Everyone knows healthcare costs are rising and people’s incomes can’t always keep up,” says RxTruePrice client Dr.
