Medigent Components

Drug Information System (DIS)

The Medigent DIS module provides the medication portion of a patient’s complete health record by electronically linking all healthcare sites, including community pharmacies, hospital pharmacies, physician clinics, health centres, addiction centres, hospital wards, and emergency rooms with a database that maintains patient medication records. It accesses, in real-time, the patient’s entire medication profile, immunization record, and various other attributes of a patient’s clinical history, such as allergies and intolerances, medical conditions, and observations, allowing for a more comprehensive review.

Medigent provides a comprehensive DIS with the industry’s most comprehensive Drug Utilization Review (DUR) modules and ePrescribe capabilities for complete, up-to-date, and accurate medication profiles and information for improved health planning, evaluation, and research.


Pharmacy Claims Processing System (CPS)

The Medigent Pharmacy CPS is designed to automate and streamline the daily business processes required to manage government drug insurance programs. All claims are adjudicated in real-time. The CPS provides linkages between the services, providers, clients, and plan structures, such as covered drugs, in an integrated solution for management, adjudication, and payment.

The Special Authorization component is a critical element of Medigent’s CPS Pharmacy module; it can manage the end-to-end Special Authorization review process, from receipt to approval or denial.

Travel and invoice information can be electronically loaded from other systems to automate the information-capture process.
