The MineRx Program
The Funds’ The MineRx Program, also known as the Prescription Drug Care Coordination Program, is an initiative to help physicians advance the quality and effectiveness of the prescription drug therapy they provide to their elderly and chronically-ill patients. The Program currently operates in eight Pennsylvania counties: Allegheny, Cambria, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Somerset, Washington, and Westmoreland. The Program serves some 480 providers who care for approximately 6,000 Funds beneficiaries.
Prescription drugs bring substantial benefits to patients, but they are not without risk, especially when they are used in combination with certain other drugs, or to manage particularly complicated situations. The MineRx program seeks to:
- Use up-to-date drug information and patient-specific data to heighten physician awareness and understanding of drug-related risks; and
- Afford practitioners ready access to a set of innovative resources and services designed to promote recognition and effective management of those risks.
