Doctor Dispensing of Medications

Last Updated: July 16, 2019 | Created: July 16, 2019

With Doctor Dispensing of Medication, physicians are able to administer prepackaged medications to their patients at the point of treatment. This makes it extremely easy for patients to leave your office with the proper medication in-hand and without the need for a separate trip to the pharmacy.

What’s Needed to Get Started

Before you start the Doctor Dispensing journey, it’s important to consider a few foundational aspects of the process. First, does your state even allow it? Although most states do, there’s a handful that do not. Next, how will you keep inventory and stock counts up-to-date and what medications will you want to keep on-hand. Lastly, how much will you charge for medications?

The great thing about these concepts is that our expert team at BRP Pharmaceuticals can help you through each of these questions. Our team has decades of experience setting up practices and clinics, making the administration of your in-office dispensing program easy.

However, what really differentiates BRP Pharmaceuticals from the rest of the competition is our state-of-the-art physician dispensing software.

The majority of Doctor Dispensing regulations take place at the state level. Individual states have the ability to allow or disallow the practice. Fortunately, our compliance department knows exactly what the doctor dispensing regulations are in each state.


Doctor Dispensing of Medication offers a multitude of benefits over traditional pharmacies.

Patient Convenience

Dispensing increases patient convenience since they do not have to travel and wait for medications at a pharmacy.

Patient Compliance

Millions of adults skip filling their prescriptions every single year. Further, research suggests that just 60% of doctor prescriptions are filled when the patient uses a traditional pharmacy. Patient compliance is closer to 100% with physician dispensing because the patient leaves your office with medication in-hand.

Practice Differentiation

Physician practices can set themselves apart from other practices and drugstores by becoming more of a Point of Care pharmacy.

Additional Revenue

Dispensing creates an additional revenue stream for the clinic.

Reduced Workload & Time

By having medications on-site, practices are able to reduce the number of calls they make and receive from pharmacies.
