Blog Posts  |  07 October 2020

Prescription price transparency and the crucial cost conversation between physicians and patients at the point of care is becoming more important. Recently, Jill Helm, VP of Solutions Management at Veradigm joined other clinical panelists for a conversation hosted by the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) on how to effectively approach medication cost conversations with patients in the era of prescription price transparency.

In this session, the presenters discussed how new price transparency tools can help reduce provider and administrative burdens, enhance the patient experience, improve medication adherence and help patients save money on medication costs. The presenters also provided real life examples about how sharing cost information at the point of care empowers patients to have a voice in their treatment decisions. Additionally, panelists shared tips and techniques on how to best integrate the conversation into their patient encounters.
