On this episode of PGX for Pharmacists, host Ken Sternfled, RPh., interviews Dr. Jason Cavolina PharmD, CEO of RXVIP Enterprises. 

Jason is part of a group of Pharmacists and Students of Pharmacy who took on a personal mission to raise awareness and deliver a 2 minute life saving test.

This life saving test can help reduce the risk of Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs). These tests have been around for over 9 years and are now covered by Medicare so we are raising awareness through a national alliance we formed with MedXPrime.

-Offering PGx tests will further differentiate our companies as the leader in the market by delivering ‘Tomorrow’s Medicine Today’.

– We can offer valued based services that include consultation, screening and also perform the test to create incremental revenue, even after the initial visit with the patient with no change in workflow or added expense.

-This initiative also positions RXVIP as a leader in reducing adverse drug reactions in patients through pharmacogenetic testing (PGx).

-This will also help create additional engagement to help retain medicare patients that can create ongoing reimbursement for the practice. RXVIP would be happy to sponsor patient events to ‘Meet The Pharmacist’ to patient education by trained pharmacy staff at no cost to a practice.

RXVIP Concierge Pharmacists meet with patients directly in a doctor’s office to conduct Pharmacogenetic testing (PGx), educate patients on cost-saving solutions and to encourage lifestyle changes, while focusing on patient adherence to medication regimens in order to achieve better outcomes.

Our single goal is to help patients and their physicians navigate the challenging and evolving health care landscape now in place with insurance entities, including assisting staff with prior authorizations and ePrescribing.
