Nearly every patient that comes to the office leaves needing a prescription. With physician dispensing software, your patients can leave with the medication they need without the hassle of a visit to the pharmacy.
Even if the patient needs treatment due to a workers compensation claim, they can still benefit from physician dispensing as a patient. Workers’ compensation dispensing removes barriers and obstacles and brings a new revenue stream for your office.
What are some of the benefits of Workers’ Compensation Dispensing?
As mentioned, for the patient, it is convenient. They do not need to go to the pharmacy, where they often face long lines, waiting for medications to be filled, or the possibility of it being closed due to business hours. Patients also do not have to take an extra trip when they may not be feeling well and need access to their medication as soon as possible.
Your staff has the opportunity to educate patients on their medications. In return, patients can ask questions and express any concerns.
As a result, they often have a better understanding of their treatment plan, which increases compliance.
With increased compliance, patients have better outcomes. Their injury or condition is better managed or healed because they collaborated with the practitioner during the visit.
What are the benefits to the employer?
Employers want their employees to be healthy and able to return to work. With physician dispensing, you see patients returning to work faster because they have improved outcomes.
With in-office dispensing, you see better compliance with patients taking medication. Because of this, it helps to avoid OSHA 300 reportable events due to the use of over-the-counter medicines to treat their condition.
Also, as noted earlier, patient outcomes are improved, making both employer and employee satisfied.
What are the benefits to the provider
Providers can better monitor patient compliance because they are the ones who are dispensing medications. Physicians and staff can educate on each medication and how to take them right there in the office. Patients have increased understanding and overall are more satisfied with their care.
With in-office physician dispensing, there is increased profit for the clinic. Rather than the money being spent at the pharmacy, it is returned to the office.
Physicians are often satisfied to see improved patient outcomes. That is always the goal for every patient who comes into the office.
