Advantages of medication management by APST

Electronic medication plan

On APST portal, patients and doctors have the option of viewing and printing an overview of current and past medication in the form of an electronic medication plan. In addition, they can make confidential assessments of medication and services and thus contribute to the improvement of care processes.

Improvement of medication safety

APST cooperates with specialised pharmacies that offer a service telephone for patients in the Ambulanzpartner care network. On weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., patients, relatives as well as nursing staff and doctors have the opportunity to receive advice on existing medication treatment.

The contact persons are pharmacists who are specialised in the medication of patients in the outpatient care network. They can clarify questions about side effects of medicines, their combinability as well as tips on practical medication intake and reducing the risks of side effects.

Simple and fast supply of medicines

Patients receive the medicines prescribed at their doctor's visit delivered to their home without having to go to a pharmacy themselves. The supply is processed on the same day by the pharmacy cooperating with APST. Due to the specialisation of the partner pharmacies in the patient groups of APST, the medicines are always in stock or immediately available. Medications that have already been prescribed can be easily reordered by telephone.

How can I participate in the medication management of APST?

To use the services of APST, patients sign the declaration of consent to participate in APST. You will receive the document from APST or can find it here.

Registration of the co-payment waiver

The services of APST are free of charge. Due to legal considerations within the health care system, pharmacies are obliged to collect medication co-payments from legally insured persons and to forward them to the health insurance companies. If you are not exempt from the co-payment or are privately insured, you will receive an invoice from the cooperating pharmacy.

The cooperating pharmacies of APST offer to electronically record the co-payment made and to inform the patient when the co-payment limit is reached. With the receipt of the co-payments made, the patient is able to submit the application for a co-payment waiver to the statutory health insurance.
