The AHCS Solution
Automated HealthCare Solutions ("AHCS") is a leading provider of technology-enabled dispensing
solutions for physicians serving workers’ compensation patients and patients covered by personal
injury protection insurance. AHCS has developed a powerful, next generation claims management
technology platform, called ezDispense™ for point of care medication
dispensing. The platform enables the Company to remove many of the traditional barriers
associated with physician dispensing, while virtually eliminating reimbursement risk and
ensuring patients receive their medication. Unlike other physician billing services, AHCS
is able to assume the collection risk on claims and guarantee reimbursement to its physicians.
This enables physicians to do what they were trained to do... practice medicine!
AHCS technology helps facilitate several other programs.
- Point-of-care drug testing procedures for the qualitative portion of the test. This allows for immediate binary results, while still allowing for additional qualitative lab tests.
Pharmacies, Mail Order Pharmacies, PBMs, and Custom Topical Compound Pharmacies
to provide immediate access for injured workers to medications required by
electronically verifying patient information and guaranteeing payment.
At AHCS, we center our programs around the philosophy of our Triad of Success:
Convenience, Compliance, and Outcomes.
AHCS’ programs ensure that your patients receive their medications and test results while in your office. Our programs are user friendly and can be performed with your existing staff in less than 60 seconds per patient. The flexibility of our software allows us to work with practices of all sizes. Whether you are a large health care system with multiple locations or a solo practitioner, we can customize our technology to fit your needs.
Our ezDispense™ medication dispensing software, powered by AHCS,
provides the tools to our physician partners to remain in compliance with all state and federal regulations as well as prescription drug monitoring programs. ezDispense™ electronically tracks all pedigree papers, lot numbers, expiration dates and controlled substances with line item reconciliation. Our software also identifies the location, physician, dispenser, cost, profit and date of all medications dispensed.
All medications are tracked by NDC# to ensure appropriate pricing is applied to
the medications dispensed.
National studies from the insurance
industry (NCCI) have proven that physicians who dispense medication prescribe a much
higher percentage of generic medication. High generic fill rates, improved outcomes
and subsequent decreased need for litigation are three major reasons why physician
dispensing benefits everyone (patients, employers and carriers) and reduces the overall
costs of workers comp claims.
A Quote by Dr. Zimmerman
"As a practicing physician, I share with other
physicians the frustration of patients having limited access to care. In response, we started AHCS
and developed a proprietary IT platform to administer innovative programs providing "point-of-care"
services that improve patient outcomes and enhance your practice."
