PrimeRx™ pharmacies can utilize the interface to facilitate the registration, recordkeeping and reporting requirements for the administration of all vaccinations, including COVID-19 vaccines.
Micro Merchant Systems announces that its PrimeRx™ pharmacy technology software offers direct integration with the automated immunization reporting solution offered by Tabula Rasa HealthCare's (TRHC) Script Management Partners (SMP). With this capability, PrimeRx™ pharmacies can utilize the interface with TRHC to facilitate the registration, recordkeeping and reporting requirements for the administration of all vaccinations, including COVID-19 vaccines.
PrimeRx™ version 220.127.116.11 allows independent pharmacies to track their COVID-19 vaccination workflow processes for COVID-19 enrollment, billing, and reporting.
Independent pharmacies now have the opportunity to use the new vaccination immunization window within PrimeRx™ to store COVID-19 submission clarification codes, incentive amount, basis of cost, and drug utilization review (DUR) within the vaccine's drug file. In addition, COVID-19 data field requirements such as administering site, comorbidity status, patient ethnicity, and patient race are all included within the vaccine immunization screen in this latest release.
"We are delighted that PrimeRx™ users will have access to this critically important solution," said Ketan Mehta, chief executive officer of Micro Merchant Systems. "It is the perfect solution at the perfect time. COVID-19 vaccine administration involves a high degree of administrative and regulatory compliance, and TRHC's SMP is aligned with each state's immunization information system (IIS) to ensure fully-compliant, automated reporting."
Community pharmacists nationwide are being mobilized to assist in vaccine administration efforts and will have a critical role as vaccine supplies increase in the coming weeks and months. Pharmacies must register as COVID-19 vaccine sites and meet strict regulatory requirements for reporting all COVID-19 immunizations within 24 hours. TRHC's SMP automated reporting solution facilitates these requirements allowing pharmacies to focus on COVID-19 vaccine administration.
"Pharmacists continue to play an integral role in the mitigation of COVID-19 – first, by providing accessible testing, and now by answering the call for COVID-19 vaccination support," said Farah Madhat, PharmD, MA, TRHC executive vice president. "TRHC's SMP solution facilitates these efforts by enabling automatic reporting processes, connectivity to state IIS, and more."
The nation's community pharmacists have been a trusted source of information and counsel throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, with vaccines available, pharmacists will play an integral role in educating their patients about the efficacy of the vaccines, and in ensuring its safe administration. With the powerful combination of PrimeRx™ and SMP, pharmacies can have confidence that technology will ensure full compliance with all record and reporting requirements.
