    Pharmacies

    Data Providers

    By performing the routine task of filling prescription orders, pharmacies submit data to PDN via a secure network connection that is provided by the pharmacy's preferred software vendor. Pharmacies participating in the network do not experience any change in prescription claims adjudication or fulfillment procedures.

    Software Vendors

    Technology Partners

    PDN has partnered with pharmacy software vendors to develop one common interface. Rather than developing interfaces to hundreds of systems, pharmacy software vendors now route pharmacy data to PDN where it can be collected, stored and readily redistributed on behalf of the pharmacy. The shared common interface eliminates replication of interface development, reduces strain on pharmacy systems and bandwidth, and minimizes the transfer of data to various servers, while providing the pharmacy with immediate access to more services they wish to utilize.

PRESS RELEASE

St. Joseph, MO – (September 1, 2017) – Pharmacy Data Network (PDN), a healthcare data aggregator, has partnered with Script Management Partners (SMP), a provider of Electronic Immunization Reporting Services, to offer immunization administration reporting services to its pharmacy network. In the new partnership, PDN will source immunization administration data from various pharmacy software vendors to make this service available to participating pharmacies. Utilizing the data supplied by PDN, SMP will provide pharmacies with electronic immunization reporting services, including the submission of records to appropriate IIS registries.

IIS registries are confidential, population-based databases that contains immunizations administered by participating providers for persons residing within a specified geopolitical area. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention encourages the use of IIS to consolidate this information into single database to help determine appropriate client vaccinations, and guide public health action with the goals of improving vaccination rates and reducing vaccine-preventable disease.

"PDN’s ability to collect and provide immunization data to SMP is going to allow us the opportunity to provide our immunization administration reporting services to more pharmacies at a faster pace," said Kimberly Mernovage, senior vice president of SMP. Mernovage continued, "The key to working with PDN is the ability to access many pharmacies across multiple pharmacy software vendors using a single data feed. Rather than creating data feeds for each individual pharmacy software provider, our partnership with PDN connects us to thousands of pharmacies from a single source."

PDN’s Chief Operating Officer, David Dixon, stated, "Prior to SMP’s service, pharmacies manually reported immunization administration records using multiple systems, which required duplicate data entry. SMP has taken the initiative to automate and simplify the process for independent pharmacies using specific data fields from our network that match IIS reporting criteria." Dixon elaborated, "As pharmacies continue to provide more clinical services to patients, specifically immunizations, SMP’s automation and reporting services will provide true value in the healthcare system." Dixon concluded, "SMP’s inclusion in our network represents a perfect example of our mission to apply diverse pieces of healthcare data to multiple systems, which ultimately creates value for all individuals and businesses involved in the network. We’re pleased to have them in the network."

About Script Management Partners

Script Management Partners (SMP) is a Health Information Technology company that provides connectivity across state and local Immunization Information Systems (IIS) for the ability to electronically report immunizations as well as research and identify immunization opportunities. Working with pharmacies, pharmacy software providers and other pharmacy service providers, SMP is a leader in providing turnkey solutions that allow pharmacies to help build their immunization programs and stay compliant with mandated reporting requirements. Based in St. Louis, MO, SMP provides services across all IIS registries that allow for electronic connectivity.

PRESS RELEASE

Calle Mendez Vigo Mayaguez, Puerto Rico – (September 14, 2016) – WesCom, Inc., creators of FarmaTec Pharmacy Software, has announced a new partnership with Pharmacy Data Network (PDN) to centrally locate and store prescription data on behalf of their software users. The prescription data that is securely located in a HIPAA/HiTECH compliant network that can be readily repurposed and quickly redistributed to service providers that offer valuable business solutions to the pharmacies which the data belongs to.

A Partnership Fueled By Trust and Value

WesCom’s President, Axel Carreras, stated, "I’ve done business with David Dixon for many years. I trust him and have come to expect him to present opportunities for business growth and innovation." Carreras elaborated, "When David approached me with PDN’s unique model for data routing, storage and sharing, I saw the value that it represented for WesCom, our customers and their patients. Any time you can utilize technology to save time, increase service offerings and generate additional revenue – all businesses in the equation benefit significantly."

Pharmacy Data Network’s Chief Operations Officer, David Dixon, stated, "It has been a privilege to work with Axel and WesCom over the years to provide service offerings for the WesCom pharmacies. Axel’s dedication to providing an excellent pharmacy system and customer support to their clients has always been impressive. PDN is excited about our strategic partnership with WesCom and expansion of data collection in Puerto Rico."

Improving Technology and Consolidating Data

"I was initially concerned that PDN’s data routing process would slow down insurance claims response times in the pharmacy. After implementing and testing PDN’s interface specifications, which was pretty simple, I’ve found that the process has actually improved claims response times." Carreras explained. "I’m impressed that we were able to improve upon an existing process, while adding new capabilities, and now that we have the PDN interface operational, I’m excited to see how the collection of data can expand the availability of services we are able to provide to our customers."

PDN’s Dixon remarked, "Our development team has focused specifically on streamlining our interface to collect and store data. Our goal is to simplify a complex process so that it’s easy for pharmacy software vendors to join and contribute data to the network without expending extensive amounts of development efforts." Dixon elaborated, "Our simplified interface specifications continue to bring additional software vendors into the network, which also multiplies the number of pharmacies involved and the volume of data records. As all of these numbers increase, so does the value of Pharmacy Data Network for all businesses involved in the network. Therefore, we will continue to pursue quality companies like WesCom to join the network, as well as service providers that are interested in acquiring data to utilize in the services they offer to pharmacies so that all businesses in the network can generate revenue."
