Get patient-specific prescription costs, lower-cost options and coverage details right at the point of care through your EHR platform.


The benefits of adopting PreCheck MyScript (PCMS)

Research found PCMS benefits patients, providers and pharmacies with lower costs, improved outcomes and reduced administrative burdens.


Save the patient money

When prescribers selected lower-cost alternative drugs suggested by PCMS, patients saved an average of $119 per prescription.1


Increase patient medication adherence

Patient medication adherence increased by up to 4% for three chronic conditions: diabetes, hypercholesterolemia and hypertension.2


Increase patient adoption

Patients whose providers used PCMS were more likely to obtain their medication than those whose providers did not use the tool.3


Provide pricing transparency and avoid PAs

Providers save 50 minutes and $41.05 per patient prescription each time an alternative is selected, avoiding Prior Authorizations.4
