How It Works: The Logistics of Onsite Medication Dispensing
In today’s fast-paced world, people are busier than ever, and patients are no exception. The faster and more efficient a physician can make things for his patients, the better it will be for the health of the practice.
One of the easiest ways to add value to your business for your busy patients is onsite medication dispensing. A recent survey revealed that 75% of patients would have their prescription filled in their doctor’s office instead of a pharmacy if given a choice.
Also, onsite medication dispensing fits seamlessly into the existing patient flow. Placed adjacent to checkout, the patient checks out and gets his prescription from the point-of-care dispensary before leaving the practice. An onsite medication dispensary includes brand and generic medications, just like a retail pharmacy, and for the patient, the co-pay is the same as a retail pharmacy.
For the practice, the patient’s insurance is quickly processed, and the practice creates a new revenue stream without incurring the high costs of startup or marketing. As well, the practice saves time and money as there are a fewer number of calls to and from pharmacies.
With analytical and reporting tools built into the onsite medication dispensing solution, the practice can:
- Dispense brand and generic medications.
- Process insurance claims in seconds.
- Maximize insurance reimbursements.
- Receive reimbursements quickly.
The option for onsite medication dispensing is easy to implement and operate, and startup costs are low. Your UniteRx point-of-care dispensary can be up and running quickly and efficiently.
