The Exceptional Access Program (EAP) facilitates patient access to drugs not funded on the Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) Formulary, or where no listed alternative is available. The new online service (to be called The Special Authorization Digital Information Exchange [SADIE]) will deliver two core advancements in the EAP service: 1) an online digital service for physicians to manage EAP requests; and 2) automation of the many currently manual back office processes.
The online service will create a digital channel for prescribers to access the EAP program, research drug criteria and availability, create, submit, and manage requests, receive notifications and alerts from the ministry for tasks such as responding to requests for additional information, submitting renewals, etc. The introduction of automation to many manual processes, including to the adjudication process itself, will provide real-time, automated responses for many drug requests ensuring that patients receive timely decisions on funding for drugs.
Come join representatives from the Ministry of Health & Long-Term Care to learn more about SADIE, experience what the solution will look like, and share your thoughts on EAP which can contribute to the design of the new solution
