The day-to-day clinic operations every practice must perform provide enough things to worry about; your in-office dispensing software shouldn’t be one of them. The process of dispensing medication must be easy, streamlined and reliable, so your attention can be focused where it matters; on the needs of your patients.
Whether you are operating a small private practice or part of a national health organization, First Coast Health Solutions’ (FCHS) Physician Dispensing Software is a scalable solution that can meet the needs of both large and small practices. The software provides a comprehensive set of tools to manage your in-office dispensary, keep track of inventory, provide accurate record keeping & produce automated reports.
Medication Dispensing Software is Cost-Effective and Time-Saving
FCHS’s Medication dispensing software is included when you sign up for their services & dispensing program. In most cases, the software can be connected to an existing EMR via SureScripts to allow the option for ePrescribing to your clinic so patients can fill their prescription in the office and eliminate a separate trip to the pharmacy. In-office dispensing saves patients the extra travel & waiting time usually spent at the pharmacy and saves your staff the time they would usually spend performing pharmacy call-backs, confirmations, etc.
In many cases, dispensing cash-and-carry medications also saves patients money. Most generic medications can be purchased by the patient for a price at or below their standard co-pay.
Medications dispensed in-office come pre-packaged which means errors in labeling, pill counting, lot control, etc. are significantly reduced. The dispensing software also gives real-time inventory tracking & reporting so the risk of loss or theft is also reduced.
Increased Patient Convenience and Retention Rate
Your patients will appreciate the convenience of being able to obtain their medication directly from their healthcare provider. Patients are more likely to be compliant when they receive their medication immediately. It is a fact that distance and wait times at pharmacies are barriers to patient compliance. FCHS dispensing software can generally process a transaction in less than a minute, so waiting for medication is non-existent in practices that dispense onsite.
Patients will also have the opportunity to ask questions from the provider after receiving their medication. Often patients are more comfortable expressing concerns to providers with whom they have relationships vs. an unknown pharmacist. Communication and the opportunity to ask questions will build trust with patients, creating a healthy and successful patient-provider relationship.
Bring Revenue to your Practice and Maintain Compliance
By processing and dispensing medications directly in-house, you receive the revenue that would otherwise be sent to a pharmacy. Depending on your practice specialty and patient demographics, you have the option of setting up a cash-pay, insurance adjudication or work comp billing program. FCHS team of billing and dispensing experts will help ensure your program is custom-tailored to your needs and that the highest revenue potential is achieved.
The dispensing software is equipped to handle automatic, state-specific PDMP reporting. Every dispense transaction is tracked and submitted according to your state’s rules. All communication servers the software is connected to are secure, with dedicated firewalls to eliminate intrusion ensuring that patient information is safe, secure & HIPAA compliant.
