Bizmatics and DrFirst Partner to Boost Medication Adherence 

ROCKVILLE, Md. and NIAGARA FALLS, NY – June 12th, 2024 –  Health technology pioneer DrFirst and Bizmatics, a leading provider of clinical and business productivity software and services for independent practices and specialty clinics, today announced a partnership to reduce prescription abandonment and improve medication adherence. Bizmatics will integrate the RxInform patient engagement solution into the PrognoCIS electronic health record (EHR) to deliver automated messages to patients’ mobile devices when their healthcare providers send prescriptions to the pharmacy.  

More than 25% of new prescriptions are never picked up by patients due to high out-of-pocket costs, concerns about side effects, or forgetfulness. These gaps in adherence contribute to poor patient outcomes, such as disease progression and hospital readmissions, which increase costs to the U.S. healthcare system. Now, prescribers using the PrognoCIS platform can help reverse high prescription abandonment rates without disrupting their clinical workflows.  

RxInform automated messages let patients know a prescription has been sent to their pharmacy, provide educational information about the medication, and offer ways to save on prescription costs, which can be crucial for improving adherence.  

“The partnership between DrFirst and PrognoCIS strengthens the connection between healthcare providers and their patients,” said Marc Keller, EVP of Bizmatics. “By integrating RXInform, our clients can offer patients enhanced access to knowledge-based articles, text reminders for their prescriptions, payment details, and available coupons.”   

RxInform has consistently earned a 95% satisfaction rate, receiving over 20 million patient ratings. This positive feedback underscores the improved connections between practitioners and patients, improving the patient experience and helping them start and stay on therapy. 

 “When patients don’t pick up and take their prescriptions, it can have serious implications for their health,” said G. Cameron Deemer, CEO of DrFirst. “By adopting an integrated approach to e-prescribing, Bizmatics is empowering its prescribers to address the behavioral, financial, and practical barriers that lead to abandoned prescriptions and contribute to poor health outcomes. When you combine a seamless provider workflow with an automated patient engagement strategy, you can really move the needle on medication adherence.”
