|HMS Adds Speed Script to Client Roster||| Print ||
Health Market Science (HMS) has announced a partnership with Speed Script for use of the HMS Prescriber MasterFile. This file is used to reduce the risk of pharmacies sending claims using an incorrect group practice address or an invalid prescriber identifier, or submitting a claim for a state or federally sanctioned prescriber.
With this service integrated into the Speed Script pharmacy management system, Speed Script users will always have the latest prescriber information. According to Craig Ford, HMS senior VP, another advantage of the HMS prescriber file is that it will handle data discrepancies, thus avoiding forced delays in claims submissions to look up prescriber information and running the risk of entering the wrong information.
HMS has also announced that it has added new demographics on over 7,000 hospitals; 52,000 extended-care and skilled-nursing facilities; 250,000 group organizations, clinics, and labs; and over 1.5 million affiliated providers. Facility-based information can be an important component in better managing reimbursement and compliance payments.
