EPIC Pharmacies has entered into a four-year partnership with ERxDirect for the integration of its pharmacy technology platform into EPIC Pharmacies’ network of more than 1,500 community pharmacies. ERxDirect’s services include claims processing and editing, real-time insurance verification, electronic prescriptions, medical and vaccination claims billing, and other services.
“This partnership is helping pharmacies find growth solutions outside of traditional models,” says EPIC Pharmacies CEO Jay Romero, R.Ph. “The future of pharmacy needs innovative solutions, and this partnership is a stepping stone for a stronger future for community pharmacies.”
The telemedicine service offered by ERxDirect is one solution that has been launched with EPIC Pharmacies. The company has recognized that while big-box corporate chains are often considered the front lines of healthcare, it was critical to place more attention on supporting independent pharmacies. Connecting pharmacists and local medical providers on a single telemedicine platform is viewed as serving them well beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
