About Our Program
The American Health Care 340Beyond Program enables qualified entities to provide drugs, acquired at a significant discount through the Federal 340B drug program to patients via highly specialized, proprietary data systems. Our patent pending inventory management system greatly reduces the administrative burden normally associated with this program. Hospital or local retail pharmacies can be utilized as the 340B drug providers. American Health Care services a full array of qualified entities across the country spanning from large multi-hospital systems, large and small standalone hospitals and federally qualified health centers. Each of these entities, recognizing their obligation for patient compliance under the statute are utilizing American Health Care’s tools to achieve compliance under the Federal 340B drug program.

The 340Beyond Program
Our complete 340B solution allows qualified entities to effortlessly reduce drug costs and improve patient access to affordable medications using hospital-owned or health center-owned pharmacies together with contracted community pharmacies. Our complete virtual inventory management solution requires no hardware, software or upfront costs and is provided absolutely free.
Standardizing Care for Chronic Conditions
Utilizing an improved Asheville care delivery model that has been perfected through sites operating in 36 states across the country, your facility will differentiate itself using American Health Care's best practice care delivery protocol for 12 major disease states, including Diabetes, Hypertension and Hyperlipidemia. Utilizing our proprietary Digital Outcomes Communication System (DOCS™) clinical tools and individualized care maps are created for each patient. Health outcomes and financial outcomes are clearly measured and reported. The program standardizes care across disease states, considering the severity of each patient's condition, and proactively managing each patient on an individualized basis.
Virtual Inventory Management System
One of the key challenges faced in any 340B program and a noted key requirement for qualifying facilities is the efficient and auditable replacement of medication for participating dispensing pharmacies.
The AHC Virtual Inventory Management System alleviates the administrative burden typically associated with stock replacement. Pharmacies dispensing 340B drugs to “340B patients” will not have to worry about separating a physical inventory but can dispense “340B-patient” and non-340B-patient prescriptions from the same inventory. The Virtual Inventory Management System is provided at no additional cost.
Digital Outcomes Communication System (DOCS™)
A Health Record & Powerful Clinical Tool
DOCS™ is an innovative, web-based, and powerful clinical tool designed to facilitate care delivery to chronically ill patients. DOCS™ also provides a comprehensive health record for each and every patient through the following:
Integrating medical, laboratory, and prescription information into the database,
Highlighting outcome deficiencies that need to be addressed for each patient,
Providing a medium for provider collaboration, and
Enabling the hospital to empower healthcare professional employees (doctor, pharmacist or pharmacy resident, nurse, or other licensed health care professional) to function as the healthcare professional providing continuing and documented health care to all 340B patients.
DOCS™ is an extremely secure, web-based communication portal that integrates the patient’s entire medical profile. The Digital Outcomes Communication System is designed to integrate medical and pharmacy data, document care visits, provide information on patient-care events to care providers, and highlight deficiencies in care to those that are involved with the medical and related care of patients. Medical, pharmacy, laboratory, patient lifestyle, and encounter data is uploaded to the system and filtered through evidence-based clinical algorithms.
DOCS™ also allows for a comprehensive risk stratification of the entire patient population and flags medical outcomes deficiencies which the healthcare professional may then address, documenting the steps taken into the system. Patients with immediate or acute risk can be identified as well as those emerging-risk members that will represent next year’s critical cases. This tool assures a level of consistent care for all healthcare professionals and allows for real-time communication between all providers of medical care. The physician, pharmacist, nurse, and case managers can post notes to each other and scan vital medical documents into the patient’s DOCS™ record.
