Case Study: Therapeutic Interchange Letters

A Winning Drug Utilization Strategy to Avoid Missed Savings

With SRX’s Full Service Pharmacy Cost Management solution, one skilled nursing facility (SNF) operator greatly reduced the number of missed savings over a one-year period. 

This was achieved by implementing Therapeutic Interchange (TI) letters that give clinical and medical directors a tool for communicating formulary preferences to pharmacy partners. These letters ensure that only specific drugs that have been selected for their clinical efficacy and cost savings, as outlined in facilities’ formularies, are dispensed. 

See how TI letters helped this operator maximize its savings in this case study.

The SRX dashboard provides a proprietary look into the performance of individual facilities, giving operators and administrators powerful insights. Included in this dashboard are missed cost-saving opportunities that can be addressed with the correct implementation of TI letters. 

As demonstrated in this case study, putting TI letters to use with the right expert advisors can make a significant monetary difference and streamline operations between facilities and their contract pharmacies.
