Patient support programs to assist patients to achieve better medication compliance and persistence is not new, and indeed have been in existence for decades. What is new is ensuring pharmacists play a key remunerated role in this process. PharmaPrograms initiates are IT enables patient solutions where pharmacists, through set protocols, deliver a patient service and are remunerated for that service.
Our goal is to create value for patients in a variety of ways:
- Access to prescription medications prior to PBS listing
- Additional treatment options to support their medication regime
- Simplified professional programs to enhance their treatment experience
- QUM initiatives to improve medication adherence and persistence
National access to tailored programs, which involve doctors and pharmacists informing their patients about the benefits of such programs.
The aim of each medication specific program is to establish a national network of pharmacies to support patients to ensure better compliance with their medication, timely access to information and services. This national network is promoted to doctors and patients as the Network Pharmacies. A pharmacy must first register for a specific medication based Pharmacy Program. The pharmacy must agree with the Terms and Conditions of the program. Network Pharmacies are informed of new programs as they come on board and in the 20 months since launch 6 programs have been brought to the market.
Registration will occur online at www.pharmaprograms.com.au.
Pharmacies are provided resources (hard copy Kits and online resources) for tailored Pharmacy Programs. There is a web portal, not for public viewing that requires a general Username and Password to access. Pharmacies complete all necessary details on the Program Registration eForm. Your Pharmacy ID will be emailed to you. The resources page on the site has been set up to assist pharmacists. As updated versions of documents are created, they will be located here. Once set up, as patients present prescriptions for that medicine the Protocol for the program is triggered. As part of the service the pharmacist completes some online eForms and the patient is provided some information through a tailored one-page leaflet. Pharmacies are remunerated for these professional services and the amount depends on the rigor of the program.
Doctors and patients are then informed about your pharmacy’s participation in the program via a pharmacy locator where prescribers can assist patients to locate a Network Pharmacy.
