RxRevu, an independent provider of integrated prescription cost transparency solutions, has reached an agreement with Cerner Corporation to integrate its pharmacy and patient pricing services into the electronic health record.

The goal is to help providers choose the most cost-effective medication for patients.

RxRevu’s SwiftRx Direct allows healthcare providers to see medication cost information in real time at the point of prescribing. Working with Cerner, RxRevu will be able to provide coverage information so patients receive the medications they need at costs they can afford.

“Supporting healthcare providers with pricing information is key to helping them make more informed care decisions and improve the overall experience for patients,” Kashif Rathore, Cerner’s vice president of interoperability. 

Cerner’s ability to rapidly deploy RxRevu’s SwiftRx Direct across its clients at no charge will bring important drug cost and coverage information on millions of patients to thousands of healthcare providers and important insights on prescribing behavior to health systems using Cerner’s EHR.
