The 340B Inventory Management Program is a federal government program initiated in 1992, which obligates drug manufacturers to provide outpatient drugs to authorized healthcare organizations and bodies at considerably reduced prices. Healthcare providers participating in this program must safeguard program integrity and preserve accurate records complying with all 340B program requirements.
The common bottlenecks which might slow down your business growth
Difficulty in identifying patients eligible for the 340B program.
Inefficient and outdated pharmacy systems to manage inventory.
Unable to update changes in policies and procedures in real-time.
Difficulty in managing audits because of traditional legacy systems.
Outdated systems to track dispensing and replenishing of medicines.
Old and obsolete methods to report the performance of the 340B program.
A cloud-based 340B process automation to optimize your 340B savings
OSP Labs can assist healthcare organizations design and create a fully automated 340B prescription management system, which will process and qualify prescription data in real-time and provide data analysis to ensure adherence to 340B practices and procedures. This software solution can also be customized to display the number of prescriptions, prescriptions dispensed by pharmacies, and the medical costs on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
The data collected in real-time can assist healthcare organizations in building a robust and effective 340B inventory management system and playing a key role in reducing the growing misuse of the 340B program.
We have helped vendors and organizations participating in the 340B inventory management program build a system, which ensures compliance with 340B guidelines and practices. This solution can be designed to maintain multiple inventory centers as it is necessary for an inventory management system to be capable of assimilating dispersed inventories into the pharmacy workflow. This system can also be customized to support direct Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) interfaces, enabling the inventory and order management system to connect to suppliers directly and instinctively download and access their updated directories.
It can also be integrated with other 340B management systems such as auditing, reporting, supply chain, etc. for data exchange and identifying best practices to ensure compliance.
Our team of experienced developers and engineers can assist in designing a 340B management software that can help identify patients eligible for the 340B program. This system can be integrated with other databases where the data of 340B eligible patients is stored.
It will ensure that drugs obtained under the 340B program are restricted to outpatient use and given to individuals who meet the requirements of the existing patient classification. When an individual applies for 340B drugs, it can be designed to explain why that individual is eligible for the use of the drugs on an outpatient basis and display records that can establish compliance with 340B program requirements.
We can design and build self-learning applications for staff involved in managing the 340B program. These applications can provide all the information related to 340B inventory management and also updates the changes to policies and procedures in real-time. It can include information about:
This solution will ensure that the staff is self-sufficient, and there is no dependency on any third party or individual. They will be able to find answers to their questions through these applications.
OSP Labs can assist healthcare providers in building an audit software solution, which covers all the dimensions of 340B program compliance and also provides an understanding of areas where the program performance can be enhanced and improved.
This system will focus on 340B policies and procedures for comprehensiveness and uniformity and automatically update the changes to any policy and guideline. It compares the actual 340B program implementation and information regarding the accumulation of 340B data and supplementary purchasing and inventory management practices.
A solution can be designed and developed based on predictive analysis. It can create competencies through hospital supply chain optimization. This system uses a combination of patient and clinical data, which enables hospitals and healthcare providers to predict the probability of certain consequences, eventually providing more personalized care to 340B program patients.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be leveraged to integrate and automate pharmacy operations. It will provide real-time visibility into inventory purchasing like classifying medicine quantities across locations and forestalling upcoming shortages. Automation will also improve and enhance processes and create efficiencies, eradicating burdensome inventory management responsibilities that can result in excessive costs and human errors.
Tracking all the 340B claims with the well-updated audit reporting module can have a beneficial effect on 340 auditing and compliance challenges faced by the providers. 340B Pre-Audit, onsite audit, desk audits and post audits can be automated with proactive notifications for any major modifications to the 340B database of the provider.
We can design and build a customized, robust automated reporting system. It can educate and update you about the performance of your 340B program, augment decision-making, and facilitate pre-emptive administration of your 340B inventory management program.
In this solution, we can also include a reporting component that will allow drugstores and employees access to all the necessary reports. These reports can include information about inventory replenishment, claims, cash flow summary, accounting, etc.
This automated reporting system will:
• Ensure better and transparent communication
• Improve accuracy, productivity, and timeliness
• Improve decision-making
• Improve efficiency within the organization
• Identify problems early
• Better service to 340B patients
We can build a centralized pharmacy management system for healthcare organizations participating in the 340B program. This system will provide detailed information about the medicines available at a store for 340B patients, which will help healthcare providers offer better service to their patients. 340B eligible patients can be directed to the nearest pharmacy that has the medicines in stock, saving the time and effort required to travel long distances.
Also, with the help of this system, they can efficiently manage dispensing and replenishment of medicines in real-time.
We can help 340B program healthcare providers design and build a customized claims management system, which will process and provide information about claims in real-time. This AI-based claims management software solution is designed using the best development methodology to ensure smooth and error-free integration with your existing systems.
Our team of experts will analyze your existing systems, find ways to make it more effective, self-sufficient, and compliant with the 340B inventory management laws. Also, this solution can be further amended to automate primary claim processes with intelligent case administration so that claims management functions at the maximum level of competence.
