In-Office Dispensing Primary CareMany primary care practices still don’t have in-house dispensing, but that is changing as 2014 rolls into 2015. This year, many are talking about how medical practices are running operations in ways they have not or had not considered doing previously. The big drives?

How to make money and how to improve patient care.

Primary care clinics have seen a dramatic rise in patient numbers as a greater number of patients have access to healthcare in 2014. Practices are looking for ways to not only serve their growing population but to keep them coming through the doors. One of the best ways to achieve that is to leverage a solution that both adds revenue and focuses on improving patient care.

According to a study conducted by Harvard Medical School, more than 20 percent of first-time patient prescriptions are never filled. One of the major reasons for this is convenience. The same study has shown that when patients receive the medication at the time of their office visit, they not only receive instructions and encouragement as to using the prescription, but the physicians know that the patient has picked up the medication. The benefits that speak to improving patient care?

Greater adherence to medication regimens, improved compliance, and as a result better outcomes.

Don’t these sound like benefits your primary care practice would like to enjoy?

While adding in-house dispensing is a great way to add a supplemental revenue stream, perhaps the best benefit of all is improving care across the board for your patients. And while you’re helping to improve care, you’re branding your practice as one that values convenience, loyalty and more.
