The benefits of physician dispensing are vast, start reading below to learn more!

New Revenue Streams

Clinics that provide in-office dispensing with BRP have seen sustained revenue and profit growth of up to 50% – without having to take on additional staff, equipment, or patients.  In addition to this direct financial benefit from physician dispensing, clinics also increase patient satisfaction and outcomes which reduces churn, improves reviews, and increases referral patients.

Improved Patient Care and Compliance

Unfortunately, patients do not fill or properly comply with their prescriptions approximately 40% of the time.  This delays recovery, increases risk, and can result in unnecessary patient hospitalization. By improving compliance by dispensing medication at the point of care, your patients will enjoy better outcomes.  This has further benefits for your practice by incentivizing positive reviews and word-of-mouth referrals.

Greater Patient Satisfaction

Patient satisfaction goes up with physician dispensing with BRP.  In addition to improved outcomes, patients benefit from the convenience of in-office dispensing.  Injured, elderly, or mobility-challenged patients particularly benefit from not having to make an extra trip to the pharmacy, waiting in lines, and waiting for their medication to be dispensed.

Increased Clinic Efficiency

Physician dispensing with BRP means that it will take approximately two minutes to dispense a prescription, total.  You don’t have to find out the patient’s preferred pharmacy, send them prescriptions, or field verification calls or authorizations. Spend this time instead with patients or growing your practice.

100% Easy Setup

The nature of the weight loss clinic business makes it ideal for physician dispensing. This is because most weight loss medications are paid for in cash (they are not generally covered by insurance) and are expensive at the pharmacy. Using BRP Pharmaceutical’s low prices and then charging a markup allows your clinic to make a good profit while providing patients with a much more convenient service that can still be price-competitive.

A further benefit for patients is that physician dispensing is by its nature confidential; patients don’t have to risk being overheard at the pharmacy or talk about their weight loss with more people. In addition, patients are much more likely to comply with the specifics of a prescription when it is dispensed in-office. One recent study found that up to 40% of prescriptions written in the traditional pharmacy model are either never filled or its instructions are not followed. Increasing compliance thorough doctor dispensing leads to improved outcomes.

With all of these benefits to patients, your weight loss clinic stands to benefit from increased patient satisfaction, better reviews, more referrals, and lower risk. These benefits are all in addition to the money you will make dispensing medication. Clinics have seen profit increases of up to 50% using physician dispensing.

BRP Pharmaceuticals provides a large formulary of urgent care medications at competitive prices and has a long track record of partnering with urgent care clinics and chains. We are pharmacist-owned and operated and always maintain at least one professional pharmacist available for any issues that might arise. Please contact us for pricing for your formulary.

Large Medication Formulary

BRP acquires medications from multiple high-quality US-based pharmaceutical companies, all of which are FDA approved.  We have an exceptionally large formulary full of both branded and generic medications. Click here to see a list of many of our most commonly ordered medications; if you don’t see a medication that you commonly prescribe, please contact us as we may have it in our formulary but not listed on our site, or in any case it’s most likely that we can order it for you.

Competitive Prices

BRP sources medications from multiple sources, allowing us to seek out the very best prices on your behalf.  In many cases, our prices are so competitive that patients will often find it more desirable to buy medications from you (even with a markup for your practice’s profit) than to pay the co-pay at the pharmacy.

Reputable Medication Suppliers

BRP is committed to providing only safe and effective products that meet or exceed the most stringent quality requirements. We only work with the most reputable U.S.-based, FDA and DEA compliant facilities. Our repackagers are compliant with state and federal laws and are audited regularly by the FDA, DEA, and outside parties.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have specific questions about our medications or suppliers.

Real-Time Inventory Management

BRP’s software tracks your inventory of all of your medications accurately and in real time.  Every time you dispense medication at the point of care, the physician dispensing software updates automatically (and, if necessary, automatically reports it to appropriate regulatory bodies).  It also has a process built-in that automatically checks that you are dispensing the correct medication and that the medication you are dispensing has not expired.

Automatic PDMP Reporting

The software you use when ordering medications from BRP (which is simple, intuitive, and web-based) automatically tracks dispensing of controlled substances and reports required data automatically and reports this data to comply with Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMPs).

Our software reports this data electronically and on a schedule that complies with reporting requirements (daily, 72-hours, or weekly as appropriate) and also complies with “zero-fill” reporting requirements.

Generous Payment Options

BRP makes payment easy.  We accept major credit cards as well as checks and use standard 30-day billing terms.
