eRx Network, LLC reports success among the recent prescriber National Provider Identifier (NPI) chaos for retail pharmacy. eRx Network was prepared for the arrival of the CMS mandated NPI requirement for prescriber IDs, providing its pharmacies additional support and an "eRx NPI Mapping Edit" that automatically converts legacy prescriber identification numbers to the new required NPI. eRx Network will intelligently map NPIs prospectively based upon the NPI implementation dates specifically required by each pharmacy payer.
eRx Network reports that their NPI Mapping Edit successfully converted over 96% of the unknown prescriber NPI's submitted via the eRx Network claim processing switch since the 23rd of May for those customers utilizing the edit. Without this service, pharmacies have been experiencing approximately a 35% rejection rate on claims requiring the prescriber's NPI.
"Our services are 100% focused on retail pharmacy and we understand the ever-changing nature of our industry", states Murray Lyle, President, eRx Network. "Our goal is to always provide our customers the solutions they need to address these challenges while remaining focused on their patients."
This NPI Mapping Edit is just one of many innovative services provided by eRx Network. The goal of their suite of products is to give their pharmacy customers the tools necessary to improve their profitability, efficiency, and accuracy.
