Through a dynamic platform integration, ECL and OptimizeRx will provide cost saving and patient information services within EHRs that are part of ECL’s portfolio of performance solutions for more than 6,800 ophthalmologists and optometrists. ECL brings together the most trusted names in EHR technology, including Medflow, Integrity EMR, MDoffice, ManagementPlus, IO Practiceware and EyeDoc.

OptimizeRx will operate seamlessly within the EHR platform to provide support for health care providers (HCPs) and valuable services for patients. The EHR will alert HCPs to potential savings and information for patients that can result in reduced prescription costs and improved overall health outcomes. Further, multiple independent studies confirm that leading pharma manufacturers have realized ROI ranging from 300% to 1,200% in terms of pharma-sponsored patient financial support programs that are integrated into the EHR workflow.

OptimizeRx core EHR workflow solutions include:

  • Financial Messaging: Copay savings, vouchers and other valuable patient support can be delivered to patients electronically at the point of care and support more affordable prescriptions.
  • Brand Messaging: Patient education and key clinical brand messaging materials can be delivered at the point of care, in electronic or printed versions, offering pharmaceutical and healthcare companies more effective ways to expand HCP and patient support.

“Our integration with OptimizeRx puts cost savings and patient education tools at the fingertips of thousands of physicians using our EHR platforms,” said Jim Alland, president of Eye Care Leaders. “Incorporating these tools furthers our mission of providing the best, most comprehensive solutions to physicians, while ensuring patients receive the highest level of care and services in the industry.”

OptimizeRx has grown to more than 350 EHR and eRx network partnerships that reach over 300,000 physicians in North America. OptimizeRx’s services can be integrated quickly and seamlessly into virtually any EHR platform, usually within a matter of hours. OptimizeRx then operates easily within the workflow to alert physicians to cost savings opportunities and patient information.

“As a leader in the EHR industry, we welcome Eye Care Leaders to our growing OptimizeRx family of EHR partners, which represents the healthcare industry’s largest point-of-prescribe promotional network,” said OptimizeRx CEO, William Febbo. “Given how healthcare providers are now spending more than three hours a day on average engaged in their EHR, ECL can now enable physicians to better connect with their patients and provide valuable cost savings and essential eye health information.”
