POINT OF CARE DISPENSING

Last Updated: August 18, 2019 | Created: September 5, 2018

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.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Point of Care dispensing 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 patients skip filling their prescriptions each 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.

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.

PATIENCE CONVENIENCE & COMPLIANCE

The problem with the traditional system is that patients either (1) take forever to fill their prescriptions or (2) they don’t get them filled at all. Currently, a doctor writes a prescription and may notify the pharmacy. Depending on the wait, it could take hours for the pharmacy to fill the prescription. At some point, the patient has to travel to the pharmacy and pick-up the prescription.

With an aging population, it can be time consuming or downright impossible to get to the pharmacy in a timely manner. With Point of Care Dispensing, your patients are able to leave your office or clinic with their medications in-hand. This means that from day one, they’re in the best position possible to be fully compliant with their medications.
