Only the top pharmacy management systems equip pharmacies with the tools needed to track the DIR fees that wreak havoc on profit margins. PioneerRx makes it easy to track third party DIR fees and note the percentage or dollar amount on their profiles. Now, independent pharmacies can take an active role in monitoring clawbacks and finding more profitable solutions to keep their businesses successful.
Barry Klein, owner and PIC of Klein’s Pharmacy in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, has recently begun using the DIR Fee features within his pharmacy system, and he has already seen success. “Our account manager, Kari, has been extremely helpful along the way,” says Barry. “Before, we were retrospectively tracking it week by week. Now that we’re monitoring DIR fees with the software, our goal is now to create an Rx Trigger based on the third-party plan that has DIR fees and keeping an eye on the adherence of the patients within that plan.”
