JUNE 2020 EDITION

HHS Funding for Pediatricians

Calling all Pediatricians! If you have not yet applied to get your CARES Act money, please take advantage of OP resources on the Help Center as well as a recorded webinar to walk you through the process. This is a payment, not a loan. It  does not have to be repaid and you don’t have to account for how you use the money. There are several qualifying criteria, but the majority of pediatricians stand to get 2% of their gross revenue for a recent year. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by! You earned it, go get it!

Curbside is Complimentary!

In case you missed the announcement, Curbside Arrival will remain complimentary – indefinitely.  You told us that touchless check-in that enables patients and families to skip the waiting room is going to remain important for the foreseeable future. To address your needs, we launched Curbside Arrival, the solution that facilitates automated text communications between families and the office, allowing patients/parents to “announce” their arrival at the office from the safety of their own cars.  If you haven’t started using the solution, we encourage you to give it a try. Click here to explore our Help Center information which details how to use Curbside Arrival. If you have any questions, please contact support at support@officepracticum.com.

Making Your ePrescribing Workflow More Efficient

Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP)

Did you know that 42 states across the country require prescribers to consult their PDMP prior to prescribing a controlled substance?  OP now offers the ability for prescribers to consult their state’s PDMP as part of the EPCS workflow, which is 67% more efficient than doing it manually.  Learn more about PDMP and watch our video to see how easy it is to save time and money.  Contact your Client Solutions Manager by emailing solutions@officepracticum.com.

Electronic Prior Authorization (ePA)

Through our partner Surescripts and their CompletEPA product, OP offers an automated ePA workflow for a faster and more efficient experience.  This workflow has been proven to reduce administrative processing time, eliminate unnecessary phone calls, and secure approval from the payer early.  ePA is available at no cost to all of our clients.  Learn more about ePA and how it works.

Tip: Make sure ‘Prior Authorization’ is visible on the Medication Finder so you can see if a prior authorization (PA) is required prior to selecting the medication.  Note, ePA is driven by formulary data which is not always up-to-date.  There still will be instances where pharmacies will request a PA that was not initiated electronically.

Telehealth Integration with Anytime Pediatrics

Our world has changed since COVID-19, and everyone is adapting. In March 2020 Office Practicum announced a partnership with Anytime Pediatrics to offer a  pediatric-specific telehealth solution.  We are pleased to announce that OP is working on an integration with Anytime Pediatrics which will improve your workflow and efficiency. We expect to deliver this in August 2020.  The integration will achieve the following goals:

  • Parent and patient demographic information will automatically transfer from OP to Anytime Pediatrics.
  • Pre-scheduled telehealth visits will transfer to Anytime Pediatrics without the need for double entry.
  • Launch Anytime Pediatrics from OP without the need to sign on with separate credentials.
