US Bioservices Expands Access of MyPathpoint Portal to Health Insurers
Frisco, TX – National specialty pharmacy provider US Bioservices, a part of AmerisourceBergen, is now offering case managers working for health insurers access to MyPathpoint, a secure HIPAA-compliant web portal that delivers real-time access to patient information. The system is one of the first of its kind to offer case managers real-time access to patients’ specialty pharmacy records in an effort to ensure better experiences and outcomes for members through enhanced care coordination.
“We know the journey that patients take in today’s healthcare environment can be complex. Maximizing care in this environment requires accessing information and support from multiple care providers and stakeholders,” said Kevin James, Vice President of Payer Strategy, US Bioservices. “The MyPathpoint portal now offers insurance providers real-time information to assist with actively coordinating care in an effort to reduce expenses and improve outcomes.”
MyPathpoint centralizes all patient interactions with US Bioservices into a protected web-based site that allows case managers to access real-time information including:
- Prescription status
- Adherence monitoring
- Clinical notes
- Shipment tracking information
- Patient prescription and dispense history
“At AmerisourceBergen, we’re working to empower all healthcare stakeholders to be more collaborative and improve how healthcare is delivered to the patient,” said Amy Grogg, PharmD, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Commercialization, AmerisourceBergen Specialty Group. “A big part of this approach is to ensure that all appropriate stakeholders have access to the information they need to enhance patient care. MyPathpoint is doing just that.”
Access of prescription records to managed care organizations is an expansion of MyPathpoint portal functionality. The tool already offers secure access of a patient’s pharmacy records to patients and physicians.
