Realizing the value of pharmacy with an integrated pharmacy strategy

Many organizations fail to incorporate a holistic approach to pharmacy and typically will separate pharmacy benefit management from pharmacy operations management. However, creating an integrated pharmacy strategy can drive significant value for your organization and improve outcomes for your patients. Here are three areas where you start to see the value of turning your pharmacy operations into a top performing strategic asset: 

  • Capturing employee prescriptions and leveraging your existing assets.
  • Owning your pharmacies and increasing drug and payor network access.
  • Further establishing yourself as a center of care in your community.
Capture employee prescriptions and leverage your existing assets

As a health care provider, you are unique—you have employees and pharmacies. Most PBMs treat all their customers the same, whether it’s a logistics company or a hospital. Large, vertically integrated PBMs are often in direct competition with you as your patients’ pharmacy of choice. To improve and expand your services, you need a PBM partner that understands your organization. This partnership can create an opportunity to increase capture rates and align care with your patient clinical programs. 

At Maxor, we are an independent PBM. We recognize your unique assets, and we’ve designed solutions specifically for managing a hospital’s pharmacy benefits. We can help design your network to prioritize your pharmacies, making it easy and convenient for your employees to fill their prescriptions at your pharmacies, reducing prescription leakage. We create a customizable and adaptable formulary that’s aligned with your purchasing strategy to optimize cost, rebate, and clinical benefits. Our comprehensive analytics tools provide real-time decision support across rebate, GPO (when available) and 340B pricing (if eligible).

Own your pharmacies and increase drug and payor network access

Manufacturer restrictions have had a substantial impact on 340B covered entities by limiting their ability to replenish 340B eligible dispensed products to their contract pharmacy network. To truly maximize your 340B savings, you should consider owning your outpatient and specialty pharmacies, but that transition requires a new set of capabilities, such as gaining access to Limited Distribution Drugs (LDDs) and inclusion in payor networks.  

At Maxor, we help you build and manage your outpatient, inpatient, and specialty pharmacies. This includes staffing your pharmacies, optimizing your 340B program, and improving the lines of communication between your pharmacists and providers. Using our proprietary analytics tool, we can identify areas of uncaptured value across your pharmacy operations down to the drug, payor, or prescriber level. We can then deploy strategies to capture opportunities that enable you to provide more comprehensive care, increase a patient’s speed to medication, and retain patients in your care network.

Further establish yourself as the center of care in your community

An optimized pharmacy is a strategic asset that delivers clinical and financial value and reaffirms your position as the center of care in your community. An integrated pharmacy strategy can help you offer medications to eligible patients at a reduced cost, capture patients at the point of care, and customize your formulary according to your clinical strategy. The value your pharmacy contributes enables you to reinvest the savings and revenue into your clinical programs that serve your patients and community, improve patient access and the patient experience while maintaining 340B program compliance.

At Maxor, we work with you to develop a cross-functional pharmacy strategy across purchasing, formulary, and prescribing to deliver clinical and financial value. We create an ecosystem of care, with you at the center, by retaining patients and employees within your network, utilizing your owned pharmacies, and appropriately optimizing your 340B and specialty pharmacy opportunities. We help you transform your health center, one prescription at a time.
