Physician Dispensing Wins In A Landslide Majority Of Enhancing Patient Experience
Date:10/21/2008

Today's busy consumer wants service, convenience, and quality from their physician, all while saving time and money. Receiving their prescription directly from the doctor's office is a service today's consumer demands. Physicians can now meet this demand, and easily earn a profit by doing so.

Copley, OH (PRWEB) October 21, 2008 -- Three out of four Americans would have their prescription filled in their doctors' office instead of a pharmacy if given the choice. With only 7-10% of physicians dispensing today, most physicians are missing the opportunity to improve patient satisfaction, along with enhancing medical practice revenue, by lacking a physician drug dispensing program from their office. The study, conducted by Opinion Research Corporation, interviewed 1023 adults, and found 75% would prefer to have their prescription filled in the doctor's office instead of the pharmacy if given a choice.

The practice of physician dispensing is an FDA regulated service, sometimes called in-office or point of care dispensing. Prepackaged medications are distributed directly to the patient at the point-of-care, which saves patients a trip to the pharmacy, and allows them to immediately begin their treatment at the physician's office. All medications are prepackaged and safety sealed at the factory in high-density polyethylene bottles in accordance with FDA and DEA approved tamper resistant packaging and requirements. The service is specifically endorsed by the AMA and AAFP.

Until recently, managing the process was a tedious task, and many practices that dispense could only do so manually. The lack of reporting, inventory control and a need for maintenance of professionalism in a physician dispensing program caused many practices to pass on a physician dispensing program the first time around. However, technology has now changed the game for physician dispensing. MedXDispensing recently announced free availability of its industry leading software for most physicians. While some companies charge $4500 or more for their dispensing software, MedXDispensing has broken ranks from these other companies, and now provides its active physician clients with its proprietary industry leading software at no charge. "Our software changes the game for physician dispensing," says Michael Bitler, Physician Consultant for MedxDispensing. "Utilizing a turnkey solution to manage the entire program, from the time an order arrives until your patient walks out the door with medication in hand, is the key to a successful in-office dispensing program."

The system prints labels with the medication name, prescription and lot number, expiration date, active ingredients, and the primary cautionary statements associated with the medication being prescribed. As a turnkey solution that only requires a minute to dispense, the software also handles ordering, inventory control, patient records, dispensing, drug utilization reviews, billing, and a host of reporting functions, all on a redundant web based server that can run on any computer in the office with internet access. "We have confidence that physicians employing our turnkey program will continue month after month, because we bring value to the program, which produces profit for the medical practice, and convenience for the patient," Bitler said.

Physician Dispensing directly to patients through in-office dispensing will help ensure the patient understands why the medication is a necessary part of getting better, while eliminating the extra hassle of travel and waiting time to fill their prescription. Providing patients with the option of receiving their medication from the doctor, as part of their visit, is an excellent way to increase the value of physician services.
