On October 19, Kareo Clinical was upgraded to include the new Kareo Rx Saver feature plus enhancements to non-clinical notes and templates. You can read the full release notes for more details.
Kareo Rx Saver (Powered by GoodRx)
Kareo Clinical now has the integrated Kareo Rx Saver, a feature that allows providers to offer patients information on the best prescription pricing available in the area as well as any coupons for their medication.
Forty-five percent of Americans have trouble paying for their medication, and for patients who have not filled a prescription, the number one reason cited is cost. This new feature can help improve medication compliance and patient outcomes, whether the provider prescribes electronically or on paper, by reducing out-of-pocket costs for patients.
Medication coupons can be easily be printed and/or distributed via text and email. If a mobile number or email is available in patient demographics, it will automatically populate these, and if not, a text field prompts you to input that information. The experience is seamless and does not hinder or add any additional clicks to the current prescription process, but provides huge benefit for patients and their relationship with their doctor.

Non-Clinical Notes Enhancements
Kareo Clinical now allows you to create, save, and “complete” non-clinical notes. Non-clinical notes will no longer require provider sign-off. Non-clinical notes include:
- Amendments to document patient requests to amend information in their chart.
- Memo to Record to document non-clinical memos regarding the patient such as patient requested copy of chart, which was provided on date/time.
- Office Form to document forms created on behalf of the patient such as a Return to Work Form.
- Phone Note to document non-clinical phone conversation with patient such as patient called and requires nurse call-back.
System administrators and office staff roles now have access to Patient record > Notes and can click + Create Note to create a non-clinical note. Providers and Clinical Assistants will continue to have the ability to click + Create Note to create both clinical and non-clinical notes. Read the full release notes for more details.
