Host Richard Yadon is joined by Jon Keeley, Vice President of Pharmacy Services at Principled Dynamics with responsibility for ProSourceRx a turnkey solution for physician dispensing.

Today’s discussion will revolve around the goals of decreasing the cost of Healthcare through Impacting Physician Prescribing patterns.   With the HealthCare Reform,  the creation of Accountable Care Organizations and many other factors  we all know healthcare payers have to continue to evolve to survive. We must either be reactive or determine ways  to be proactive in today’s market place.   Sadly, the Medicaid payers often have a dilemma contracting physician’s to maintain the minimum panel requirements due to fee schedules that are lower than their commercial counterparts and prescribing requirements around pharmaceuticals that is generally brought with many demanding rules.  The confusion of a Physician dealing with many Medicaid payers in their area each with a different set of rules can be frustrating.
