To streamline the referral and prior authorization process, Therigy developed SMART eHub™ — a brand-able web portal for specialty referral management and tracking. The portal can be branded for a specific company, disease, or product brand and provides real-time visibility for prescribers, pharmacies, and pharmaceutical manufacturers.
SMART eHub — Therigy’s patent-pending, proprietary application — uses state-of-the-art encryption technology to securely transmit and receive patient information. It allows prescribers to either manually enter a new referral into SMART eHub or import it from their EMR system. All information entered into the portal is saved for future use. Once prescribers input this information into a single online form, SMART eHub generates the following:
- Pharmacy-specific referral form
- Payor-specific prior authorization form
- Product-specific patient assistance form
These forms are electronically submitted to the preferred specialty pharmacy with a single click in the portal. In addition, co-pay cards and other financial assistance program information is generated at the time of the referral to help minimize the financial barriers to patient’s start of therapy.
Specialty pharmacies access SMART eHub to securely receive referrals for intake and benefits investigation. Pharmacies either accept the referral or transfer it to another pharmacy and update the status of the referral in SMART eHub, ensuring both the prescriber and the pharmacy always have the most up-to-date information on the status of a referral.
Pharmaceutical manufacturers access SMART eHub to view referral and prior authorization statistics.
