Elevating the Patient Experience
Health System Solutions
Amplifying the pharmacy's role in patient-centered care
Improving the continuum of care
As health systems face financial penalties for high readmission rates and more providers look for ways to approach the holistic care of a patient, PHS can provide an operational assessment to review the coordination and continuity of a patient’s care along the continuum to ensure better outcomes and reduce costly readmissions.
By leveraging the outpatient pharmacy, hospitals can mitigate employee prescription costs and create new sources of revenue. Our ambulatory pharmacy solutions allow you to leverage group purchasing organization pricing and consulting to avoid preventable 30-day readmission penalties.
Specialty drugs represent the fastest growing sector of pharmacy spending today. Our solutions help pharmacies implement specialty pharmacies, while improving cost, quality, medication compliance and services offered once designed.
When you need highly skilled pharmacy leadership, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to provide operations excellence for your pharmacy needs, we can tailor the exact relationship you require to ensure your operation has the breadth and depth of talent and experience needed. We also provide expert oversight to maintain a high level of services throughout the relationship.
Navigating reimbursement and affordability challenges
For patients with complex medical conditions that require specialty drugs, the latest cutting-edge therapies can carry large cost shares that make it difficult to access and remain on therapy. And underinsured patients can put financial strain on the health systems that treat them. While patient assistance programs help hospitals recover uncompensated dollars, for providers without the available personnel, resources and time to navigate the administrative complexities, the challenge to meet the requirements of many programs can be overwhelming. As a result, thousands—even millions—of eligible dollars go unrecovered. With more than 20 years of experience with patient assistance programs for pharmaceuticals and medical devices, PHS has helped more 140 health systems of all sizes in 32 states save over $37 million annually in product costs.
