Simplifying the Doctor’s Office Experience

Express Scripts and Accredo equip physicians with the technology they need to help them make better real-time clinical decisions for their patients through:

  • Timely, simplified prior authorization (PA) reviews and electronic PAs.
  • Important information delivered directly to physicians through the ScriptVisionTM Physician App and into their electronic health records. This capability gives providers visibility into patient-specific prescription benefits to help make informed outreach to patients.
  • Expertise and guidance for physicians delivered by 200+ Accredo Physician Advisors and Express Scripts academic detailing pharmacists. Working as a strategic partner to physicians, this team helps to enhance and simplify the patient experience.

These enhanced capabilities are just some of the reasons why two out of three prescribers say they prefer Accredo as their specialty pharmacy of choice.
