ST. PAUL, MN—November 7, 2017—Panacea, a Career Step company and leading provider of revenue cycle management, smart software and enterprise-level educational solutions, is pleased to announce its enhanced Pharmacy Revenue Improvement solution. This solution combines Panacea’s expert consulting team and the company’s PHARMauditor software tool to improve revenue by gathering and simplifying complex data to ensure accurate and compliant pharmacy information.
“Achieving pharmacy revenue integrity is an especially complex task for healthcare providers,” said Mike Hodgson, President of Panacea. “Disconnects between the NDC, HCPCS, revenue codes and billable units; differences between the amount of medication dispensed and billed; and inconsistent cost and markup models, among other factors, create unnecessary discrepancies and can artificially depress reimbursements. Our Pharmacy Revenue Improvement solution cuts through the clutter to ensure organizations are using best-practice driven, defensible pricing, coding and billing strategies.”
Panacea is hosting a complimentary webinar on November 16 at 1 p.m. Eastern time to discuss the top reasons why pharmacy revenue improvement should be your next project. The webinar will feature Robin Zweifel, BS, MT(ASCP), Panacea Senior Vice President of Revenue Capture, and Lidia Zekic Karp, RN, BSN, MA, AE-C, Panacea Clinical Product Manager.
Panacea’s enhanced Pharmacy Revenue Improvement solution uncovers coding and billing risks to ensure accurate payment. This is done through a detailed documentation review by pharmacy experts as well as a comprehensive analysis of charge capture processes and pharmacy chargemaster. The PHARMauditor tool used for the analysis includes more than 300,000 codes from the National Drug Codes database.
Panacea has found that most organizations can achieve accurate, compliant and defensible pharmacy pricing in three to six months through its Pharmacy Revenue Improvement solution. This timeline is dependent on the complexity of the organization, the average pharmacy having between 4,000 to 5,000 medications to review.
