There is a perception in the physician office marketplace that providing vaccines to their adult patients is not good for their business and therefore have shied away from offering vaccines as an integral part of their practice. This has been one of the factors in driving vaccination rates to an all time low. Patients are the real losers in this trend. Access to vaccines is becoming a national “hot topic”. The CDC, Health Plans and many others Health Care Organizations are trying to understand why physician practices are reluctant to adopt adult vaccine programs. TransactRx is publishing this series in an effort to drive increased adult vaccination rates. The series is part of a multiple faceted campaign to educate and provide easy to use tools, reimbursement contracts and claims management to help providers successfully manage a profitable adult vaccination program.
“We were the first to market with our Part D Vaccine Manager back in 2008,” said Jack Guinan, CEO for TransactRx. “We have learned a lot over the years and are excited to share what we have learned from many of our highly successful accounts. This program has proven to insure a practice can implement and run a successful vaccination program. The program can help a practice just getting started with vaccines or practices that have been vaccinating and want to increase utilization”.
