Simply integrate our in-office dispensing system into your medical practice…it’s seamless, easy and affordable. Your initial prescription order (which arrives pre-packaged and sealed) comes with bottle labels, prescription bags and prescription information sheets. Our system is streamlined, takes minimal in-office space and includes training.
Over 1/3 of prescriptions go unfilled each year by patients. Because the patient leaves your office with a prescription and must get it filled at a pharmacy a breakdown occurs at an alarming rate.
30 to 50 million prescriptions are filled incorrectly each year by pharmacies (www.nbcnewyork.com, Feb. 11, 2015). There is no one better to fill your patient’s prescription than you. You can hand the patient their medication and explain to them how to take it. This creates a better bond between doctor and patient which assures higher compliance and builds trust.
In addition, by using the DocScrips Program, increase:
Patient compliance by offering convenience and increasing the likelihood of patients taking their medication correctly.
Prescription accuracy by dispensing pre-packaged, sealed medications to the patient right in your own office.
There are only six states (Massachusetts, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Utah and Texas) that have more restrictive state laws concerning point of care dispensing. Under Stark (42 USC 1395nn) in-office dispensing of medication for your own patients is legal even though outpatient prescriptions is a Designated Health Service (DHS) under the ACA. The Stark law prohibits Medicare/Medicaid referrals of a patient receiving a DHS from which the medical doctor makes a profit, but a Safe harbor has been included where the doctor is treating his/her own patient.
A practice can earn revenue from prescriptions with our Cash & Carry program. No insurance billing occurs under this program. Since you are writing the prescription anyway, generate additional revenue for your medical practice while increasing patient satisfaction and compliance.
“I wanted to take the time to acknowledge DocScrips for their professional and successfully run program. I’ve been in the Pain Management field for over 20 years and I understand a value-added program when I see one. Through DocScrips, I am able to offer a more sterile and convenient treatment for my patients, while increasing the efficiency of my staff, and have the opportunity to offer my patients the most up-to-date treatment. That’s a great feeling!
On the administrative side, following the guidance and billing methods that DocScrips has provided, I’ve seen increases in my bottom line by using their program. Happy patients and increased revenues is the best way to operate. A special thank you to DocScrips for making that a reality.”
“Ever since we’ve implemented the DocScrips in-office dispensing program we’ve seen a steady increase in patient satisfaction. Our patients are relieved to know that they don’t have to go to the big-box pharmacy and wait for their meds. Being able to provide our patients with peace-of-mind, even in the slightest way, is something we constantly strive to do in our practice.
The DocScrips in-office dispensing program has been easy to implement and saves my staff time. Reducing pharmacy calls is icing on the cake for us. A true win-win. I would definitely recommend DocScrips to like-minded practices.”
“Thank you for introducing your in-office dispensing program to us. We’ve embraced the benefits of providing our patients with such a great convenience. This has really been a seamless process and your guidance has proven to be helpful and sincere. As you’re well aware, an appointment at a dentist office sometimes results in a procedure that can be painful. We always welcome a chance to create a better environment for our patients. The ability to have our patients receive their medications immediately helps make the experience less stressful. DocScrips has helped us do that and more. They’ve also helped us to increase our profits!”
