"This is a one-of-a-kind business tool that our members can use to improve their performance and profitability.
A pharmacy's data on dispensing, reimbursement and patient behavior trends is a tremendous resource that just isn't used enough to drive business decisions. RxCOMPASS makes it easy to harness that data and profit from it."
- Mike Gohlke | Founder, American Pharmacies
You can run RxCOMPASS reports manually or receive them by email, including a Daily Performance Report (DPR) which is sent automatically and summarizes each pharmacy’s performance from the previous day. Emailed reports, which may be received and customized to your specifications, are linked directly to RxCOMPASS allowing you to “drill down” into the data for further details as needed. Actionable data is easily identified and prioritized so you can optimize time and effort invested in utilization. This simplifies identifying patients with multiple, high-margin prescriptions past due for refill.
Refills on Time
RxCOMPASS’ Refills on Time report gives you the ability to track the timeliness of patient refill activity. Patients who refilled late or not at all, and their relative prescriptions are broken down into user-friendly groups detailing applicable drug and scheduled fill date information. With this data, you can prioritize patient outreach with a goal of maximizing the ROI of their time and effort. APRx stores using Refills on Time to guide personal outreach are able to nurture patient relationships clinically, grow med sync enrollment and improve overall pharmacy performance and profitability.
Recently, one APRx member seeking to improve patient medication adherence began using the Refills on Time report to guide their personal outreach. Over a total of 52 distinct periods (typically one-week each), the member captured the following:
*All profit values listed are pre-rebate.
On average, this store invested the time of one technician for less than 8 hours each week to conduct this patient outreach. These gains are typical of what other APRx pharmacies are capturing when using Refills on Time.
