How does HarborPath work?

HarborPath designed and operates an electronic online portal where case managers and patient advocates can access medications for multiple disease states and process a patient assistance program application. The system was developed in alignment with the business rules of the pharmaceutical companies programs to ensure that all of the required data is captured regardless of which drug is requested. The overall portal design provides case managers and patient advocates with access to multiple manufacturers medications allowing for one time data entry. This reduces the time case managers and patient advocates must spend processing PAP applications and refills. Furthermore, it frees them up to provide better quality care to current patients and time to extend services to new potential patients.
