OPTIMIZERx Corp. to Automate Patient Savings and Improve Medication Adherence for Patients Served by Providers Utilizing Care360 ePrescribing From Quest Diagnostics

ROCHESTER, MI--(Marketwired - November 17, 2014) - OPTIMIZERx Corp. (OTCQB: OPRX) announced Quest Diagnostics (NYSE: DGX), the world's leading provider of diagnostic information services, will leverage OptimizeRx's technology to automate prescriber access to electronic coupons within Quest Diagnostics' Care360 e-prescribing solutions. 

Using Care360, physicians will be able to access and provide to patients -- either via electronic transfer to the patient's pharmacy, and/or by printing -- coupons from pharmaceutical companies for brand name medications. The joint collaboration integrates OptimizeRx's proprietary SampleMD technology to reduce the hassles and workflow interruptions of traditional drug samples and pre-printed pharmaceutical manufacturer coupons.

Multiple studies from leading physician journals and healthcare publications have shown a clear relationship between reduced patient medication costs and improved medication adherence. A recent Quest Diagnostics Health Trends™ study found that nearly 60% of patients misuse their prescription medications, often by not taking their medications. Coupons may help reduce patient's costs for prescription medications, while helping to improve medication adherence.
