As technology advances in our lives, organizations explore how new capabilities can improve their business functions. Accounts Payable (AP) is one of the areas which can benefit greatly from technology and attention, ultimately transforming what was once viewed as a necessary business function into a revenue-generating strategy.

Many hospitals have some version of automation in their accounts payable, but often the program doesn’t live up to their expectations. It can be challenging to enroll suppliers, it may take too many IT resources and/or lackluster customer service isn’t enough.

SUNRx LogoThe 340B Prescription Card Program from SUNRx helps 340B entities pass along savings to patients. Eligible hospitals and clinics struggle to stretch their scarce resources to provide the crucial services their patients need while maintaining financial security. And while many patients they serve can’t afford to pay for high priced medications, it doesn’t have to be this way — a 340B program administered by SUNRx can help.

SUNRx’s 340B prescription card program provides a conduit for covered entities to pass along 340B savings to their patients. Because SUNRx is a wholly owned subsidiary of pharmacy benefit manager (PBM), MedImpact Heathcare Systems, this 340B prescription card program is unique from others. SUNRx confirms 340B patient eligibility and applies its “lower of” cost calculation to find the lowest price available for the patient. This process is accomplished in real time when your patient presents...

Safety Net Hospitals struggle to stretch scarce resources to provide crucial services to their patients while meeting their bottom line. It doesn’t have to be this way.
