Dispensing medication to patients is a strictly regulated and complex process in the United States but many physicians are adapting in-office drug dispensing systems because the benefits to their practice and their patients are undeniable.
A way to make a dispensing system work effectively is to take advantage of the services offered by a reliable physician dispensing company like First Coast Health Solutions (FCHS). Their established industry knowledge, access to the best dispensing software, billing expertise and professional implementation team make the process flow seamlessly with established procedures.
Here are some of the ways that the services of a good physician dispensing company can be vital to your medical practice:
1. They provide software solutions to automate your in-office dispensing system.
According to the World Health Organization, an essential part of in-office physician dispensing solutions is good record keeping and FCHS offers an automated system that ensures the patients’ dispensing records are comprehensive, up-to-date, and easy to track. This system also minimizes medication errors since the software automatically checks prior dispenses, dispensing quantities (days supply), and risk evaluations among many other features.
FCHS physician dispensing company also offers real-time inventory tracking of medicine as it is received and dispensed. It would be challenging for a clinic to dispense medications without a software solution since manual inventory and record keeping is time-consuming and potentially adds to higher overhead expenses.
2. Physician dispensing solutions help physicians improve patient care.
An in-office dispensing system provides convenience to patients. With an on-site dispensary already established at the clinic, patients can choose to eliminate that extra trip to the pharmacy by having their medications dispensed on-site. Patients are also more likely to ask their primary caregiver questions about their medication regimen that they might not feel comfortable asking a stranger at the pharmacy in front of a line of other people waiting for their medication. This helps ensure compliance and a complete understanding of how to properly take the prescribed medication.
A study published in the ClinicoEconomics and Outcomes Research journal highlighted that an automated dispensing facility provided by a physician dispensing company in an emergency room increased the patient’s medicine intake and adherence rate as high as 91.7 percent.
3. Physician Dispensing helps your clinic gain more revenue.
An automated dispensing system is a worthwhile investment and one of the simplest ancillary services to implement. Once installed and properly set-up, it can become a means for the clinic’s business operations to grow as more patients will appreciate the convenience and improved quality of patient care. In an office that establishes a flat-rate fee for each medication, patients don’t have to worry about fluctuating medication costs or insurance co-pays. For clinics offering service to worker’s comp patients, FCHS has a full billing management system to help secure the highest reimbursements for work comp claims. For clinics offering Managed Medicare Services, dispensing helps better manage chronic conditions, ensure medication compliance, increase your star rating, and can help keep patients out of the emergency room.
