Cost Avoidance & Waste Tracker
NCODA’s proprietary CAWT tool measures cost avoidance within an MID versus the waste produced by specialty and mail-order pharmacies. Just input your practice’s data and this simple web tool calculates your cost and waste numbers in a simple visual format. Because it’s easy to use and simplifies sharing individual and compiled data, it helps make a case for the Medically Integrated Dispensary.
Resources to Help Cancer Patients Afford Care

Positive Patient Care Tool: Helping Practices Better Understand Patient Needs and Experience
Patient surveys help determine satisfaction levels for patients of NCODA member practices with medically integrated dispensing (MID) pharmacies. A study designed in conjunction with the Community Link program from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs of Syracuse University showed that patients looking for well managed and vigilant care with their provider and pharmacy staff ranked MID pharmacies high in overall satisfaction versus specialty mail order pharmacies.
Practices and patients benefit when data is collected at the point of care. Patients appreciate when asked what matters most. Practices can adapt care to better meet patient needs.
NCODA patient surveys are available by download and can be custom branded for the member practice (See Example).
Please log in or sign-up to become a member for access to the downloadable Patient Surveys for your practice.
An important tool for an NCODA Medically Integrated Pharmacy is the utilization of a Readiness Tracker when establishing policies and procedures. The tracker should have the ability to determine tasks and the main leaders responsible for each step in the development and maintenance processes. Having goal dates determining prompt completion is crucial to an NCODA MIP following the Quality Standards and going Beyond the First Fill.
There are many types of Readiness Trackers available and it is important to find one that suits your practice’s specific needs. For an example of a Readiness Tracker, please click on the link below to download the Readiness Tracker Template.
