In this ComputerTalk Podcast, we talk with Eyad Farah, vice president and general manager of Health Mart Atlas, a pharmacy services administration organization (PSAO).
Farah discusses a recent phenomenon in community pharmacy, which is a shift from 30-day to 90-day prescription refills.
We address the following topics around 90-day fills, in the context of the already difficult operating environment for community pharmacy:
- The root causes of this trend.
- Impact within the pharmacy, such as increases in efficiency but changes in reimbursements.
- How to address the impact through cash and revenue management and performance-based reimbursement options and to survive during this chaotic time
- Is a shift to 90-day fills here to stay or will patients go back to 30-day fills?
