Point of Care Dispensing enables physicians and clinics to offer patients the option to get their medications directly from the clinic at the time of their visit rather than having to take a separate trip to a pharmacy. With Point-of-Care Dispensing, patients walk out of the clinic with their medications, thereby getting more convenient and hassle-free service from their doctor.
