ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A system for confidentially storing patients' biometric data on a card made by PharmaSmart International has been added to several national drug databases, which the company said would aid support for hypertension patients among healthcare providers, health plans and pharmacists.
PharmaSmart, based in Rochester, N.Y., said its Smart Card product had been named as conforming to NCPDP's billing unit standard.
"We are pleased to have our Smart Card conform with NCPDP's BUS to ensure accurate billing and reimbursement and also have our core patient care tool listed in national drug and device compendia," PharmaSmart SVP strategic business development Josh Sarkis said. "This allows us to more easily connect providers, health plans and pharmacists in the collaborative support of hypertension patients."
The NCPDP Work Group 2 Product Identification adjudicated a billing unit for the card to confirm to BUS, allowing for uniform listing of its billing unit among the national drug databases to facilitate consistent and accurate billing and reimbursement.
