FAQS

How much of my time is PreventScripts going to take?

PreventScripts is designed to be a very simple mobile remote program, based upon the latest research. PreventScripts should take less than 5 minutes a day of your time!  Stepping on the scale first thing in the morning after you empty your bladder will take around one minute.  Our simple fruit and veggie tracker and water tracker will take less than a minute of your time daily. We recommend that you select a "My Plan" within the RM interface. This will take less than 2 minutes a week. This is a proven approach to behavior change in which you select "eat less sugar" or "drink more water" as your goal, for example.  We have a weekly email for you to read and bite sized "PrevenTips" which we will send you daily which are tailored for your goal. Each goal will launch 8 weeks of short and actionable PrevenTips which will help you permanently achieve your goal! Your provider will check in with you once a month, this will take around 10 minutes.

Who pays for PreventScripts?

Your provider pays for the license to the remote monitoring program. Your provider will bill your insurance and as always, your insurance may require you to pay a portion of the program. As the old saying goes, “ An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.

How is the PreventScripts program structured?

Once your risk for diabetes and hypertension is assessed in the office and your biometrics show you are eligible for the program, your provider staff will train you on using the software and help you get it on your phone. Your clinic will provide you a unique "Coupon Code" to enter into the mobile app. PreventScripts will then mail your "Healthy Living Kit". The program centers around setting a "My Plan" in which you select a goal to focus on. For example "Eat Less Sugar". Then we send a a weekly "check-in" survey into the app dashboard in which you regroup and see how you are doing on meeting your goals and troubleshoot barriers to changing the behavior, selecting a couple of doable changes for the next week. Monthly you will "check-in" with a Certified Medical Assistant to assess your progress, troubleshoot barriers to changing behaviors and provide personalized support.

Who can see my data?

PreventScripts is Secure AND Private, we encrypt your data in motion and at rest at the level of the banking industry. We do not sell your data to third parties, including your health insurance.  We may share population level de-identified data with health insurance companies and/or clinical research partners to assist in your providers partnership with your health insurance company to improve your health.

So What is this self-tracking all about?

Your Self tracking will pay off in dividends!  Clinical Research shows that self tracking your steps with a pedometer will help you improve your fitness. Tracking your fruits and vegetables will help you eat more fruits and vegetables.  Tracking your weight and/or Blood Pressure if it is elevated will help you lower your blood pressure. And so on…

Our Program also incorporates proven behavior change protocol recommended by the United States Preventive Task Force called "5A". This means you Check in, Select a goal, select your reason for the goal, trouble shoot your barriers to meeting the goal, then select a couple of small steps to take in the next week to help you progress though gradually to mastery of that goal over time. This is a weekly rhythm and happens all through the mobile app! You are your own best coach!

FAQS

How does PreventScripts help my patients get healthier?

The PreventScripts program helps you identify and intervene with your patients who are at risk for developing diabetes and hypertension and who may already have a diagnosis of metabolic syndrome or obesity. Rather than refer out of your practice to a specialist or specific third party program, we help you implement a clinic based prevention program that brings in additional revenue to your practice and helps your patients get healthy. Our color coded platform helps soften the shame and difficulties in bringing up the conversation of lifestyle disease with your patients. We help you show your patients the numbers and encourage them to track their health behaviors as well as biometrics over time.

How do I get paid for using the PreventScripts Platform with my patients?

First, the PreventScripts implementation and training sessions include a high level overview of implementation and billing codes. Second, we dive into an in depth evaluation of your reimbursement expected within your payer contracts. Third, we train your clinical and billing staff on the codes generated with the PreventScripts platform in the context of your office workflow. On “ Go- live” day, you will begin implementing the platform and billing and coding for reimbursement.  

How does PreventScripts address patient privacy?

At PreventScripts we take your patient’s privacy very seriously. Through PreventScripts you are offering a program to help engage and activate your patients. Your patients will consent to using the PreventScripts program and to your access of their remotely monitored data. Upon download they will accept our privacy policy here. Of course your patients may opt out of the program at any time.  

How does PreventScripts keep patient data secure? What about HIPAA?

At PreventScripts we take your patients data security seriously. Our Chief Medical Officer reviews our User Access Permission Control policy quarterly. Patient data is encrypted at a 256 bit encryption level and is encrypted in motion and at rest.  

What about malpractice? Will my malpractice carrier cover remote monitoring?

Each malpractice carrier will have a different policy for their coverage for remote monitoring. Our product is intended for the early intervention of patients who are overweight or obese and are in the pre-hypertension and/or pre-diabetic range. This is the group with the best potential to make iterative lifestyle changes and avoid chronic disease. Our stance is that early intervention and remote monitoring in this group of patients enhances the physician patient relationship lowering overall malpractice risk. The pre-disease group of patients is inherently a lower risk group of patients in terms of their risk of an adverse outcome such as stroke related to an out of range biometric reading. Our software is color coded with evidence based advice regarding green, yellow, and red ranges. PreventScripts messaging triages the patient according to their biometrics including immediate ER evaluation for American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association, and Institute of Medicine ranges and recommendations. We recommend contacting your malpractice carrier regarding the PreventScripts program. Please notify us as we are pleased to speak with your carrier on your behalf. The preventive nature of our program qualifies with some med mal carriers as a risk management tool qualifying you for malpractice discounts.  

How Does PreventScripts communicate with my EHR?

PreventScripts utilizes Direct Secure Messaging, commonly referred to as Direct, which is a secure communication transport mechanism for sensitive information over the open internet. While appearing like email, Direct Secure Messaging utilizes digital certificates and a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) to encrypt the contents of a message, meaning only the intended recipient can decrypt the message. Today, Direct Secure Messaging utilizes the foundation of the Direct Standard™, and is a widely deployed and accessible means for communicating sensitive health information to other trusted parties. Considered a “push” interoperability mechanism because of the sender “pushing” a message to the receiver, Direct Secure Messaging is a cornerstone of facilitating interoperability between disparate health technologies and organizations.

Which EHR’s utilize the Direct Protocol?

Allscripts, Athena Health, Cerner, E-Clinical Works, Epic, Evident, Greenway, Meditech, Next Gen all utilize the direct message protocol to communicate with third parties in healthcare. A more exhaustive list can be found HERE.

Is PreventScripts SMART on FHIR enabled?

Yes, PreventScripts is FHIR enabled.

What is SMART on FHIR anyway?

SMART Health IT was launched with a New England Journal of Medicine article proposing a universal API (application programming interface) to transform EHRs into platforms for substitutable iPhone-like apps. With federal investment, SMART on FHIR was developed as an open, free and standards-based API. Innovators use it to write an app once and have it run anywhere in the healthcare system. After successful lobbying of Congress and then the Department of Health and Human Services by the SMART team, the 21st Century Cures Act and 2020 Final Rule from the ONC made SMART a certification requirement. The Final Rule also specifies our SMART/HL7 FHIR Bulk Data Access API, or Flat FHIR API, which enables access to patient-level data across a patient population, supporting myriad use cases across healthcare, research, and public health ecosystems. Put simply, Flat FHIR is a standard to enable “push button” population health.

Shorter Version on SMART on FHIR please? I’m busy.
