Our Take

The data exchange between Epic and Humana promises to be transformative, and it will improve a physician’s ability to recommend cost-effective treatments to patients. Enhancing access to information through direct integrations into Epic’s e-prescribing workflow (including Real-Time Benefits Check and IntelligentRX tools), Epic and Humana will deliver accurate pharmacy data at the point of care. Customers can expect several benefits from the alliance, which will:

  • Reduce the administrative strain on providers by increasing the timeliness of authorization decisions.
  • Strengthen medication adherence by offering medication alternatives with cost information to providers.
  • Enhance value-based care by providing access to previous claims.
  • Simplify the referral process by offering cost and quality information to providers about specialty care.
