LDM is a data program that generates in-pharmacy, direct-to-patient messaging for your independent pharmacy. This service can be used to improve patient education, build customer loyalty, and give pharmacies the opportunity to earn incremental revenue from pharmaceutical manufacturers. The direct-to-patient messaging is simply an automated printout that is individualized and customized for the patient’s benefit. A message is printed in real time and distributed by the pharmacy staff with the patient’s prescription at the point of sale. Sponsored by manufacturers, this printed message includes information about the customer’s prescription and relative facts about the medication or condition being treated. Tel: 314-567-0551
VFI Statement Processing
Abacus is pleased to offer VFI Statement Processing as an option for our stores that have an interest in outsourcing the sometimes cumbersome task of printing A/R Statements, stuffing envelopes, buying stamps, etc. VFI Statement Processing is a simple process that sends your A/R processing directly to VFI via electronic submission – and your work is done!
How does it work? Simply send your statement processing to a file, instead of the printer, by selecting a new menu option on the Statement print menu. The file is FTP’d to VFI and they process and mail your statements to your customers. There are a lot of incidental expenses involved with statement mailing and some of you may find that it’s actually cheaper to use VFI to mail your statements. Your cost from VFI is approximately .56 per statement.
If you are interested in this program, call 800-474-4004.

SDA combines SDI’s sophisticated analytical capabilities, a national network of pharmacies, and the technology of Abacus for the delivery of direct-to-patient adherence programs Abacus has implemented SDI’s HIPAA compliant interface that enables your pharmacy to participate in SDI. The programs are funded by pharmaceutical manufacturers and are designed to benefit your patients and your pharmacy by complementing current adherence initiatives while generating new professional services revenue. Designed to target specific patients based on behavior traits, SDA programs deliver a message directly or indirectly to the patient from your pharmacist.
SDA has been working with chains and is providing independent pharmacies with the same opportunities to participate in funded patient adherence and educational programs. Signing up in SDA does not obligate your pharmacy to any programs. It simply allows you to participate in programs as they become available. The more Abacus pharmacies that enroll to participate in programs the more likely drug manufacturers will make the programs available to independent pharmacy. Examples of programs include, but are not limited to, an informational sheet stapled to the prescription bag, an educational letter making patients on a specific drug aware of a name change or a floor sign in the pharmacy creating flu awareness and the importance of getting a flu vaccination. We believe you’ll find each of these programs to be beneficial to your patients, your level of service and your bottom line!
