Summer is here and while many of your patients are probably off on vacation, that doesn’t mean things are slowing down around the pharmacy. In fact, quite the contrary! Summer offers the perfect time to plan ahead because as you know all too well, fall comes pretty quickly… and it’s always busy!
From routine and “back to school” immunizations, to preparing for Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period, here are 3 ways your pharmacy can boost productivity this summer.
Immunizations for all
One of the most impactful ways pharmacists continue to help maintain community health is by educating and administering routine vaccinations—particularly the annual influenza immunization. And leveraging the tools integrated within the PrescribeWellness solution makes handling the flu season rush a whole lot easier.
By providing the ability to filter by a range of factors, such as age and insurance plan, PrescribeWellness allows your staff to quickly identify and precisely target opportunities for vaccinations across your patient population. Then, you can utilize the Patient Communications tool to send timely, automated, and targeted outreach to eligible vaccine candidates in the voice they trust the most – yours!
Going contact-free is a must
COVID-19 has forever changed the way we do business, and pharmacy services are no exception. So, if you have yet to adopt a contactless appointment and scheduling solution, now is the time through the PrescribeWellness Contact-free Vaccination Intake and Scheduling tool. By going contact-free through PrescribeWellness, you can offer patients an easy way to stay in touch with you through digital intake forms and scheduling.
Say goodbye to clunky paperwork, and hello to digital convenience through the Contact-free Vaccination Intake and Scheduling solution!
Open Enrollment – it’s closer than you think!
It’s never too early to be thinking about Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period. Kicking off October 15th, this open enrollment period is the perfect opportunity to serve as a resource for your patients, while also strengthening your customer loyalty and retention.
Because costs and benefits could change year over year, it’s important to remind your patients of the importance of reviewing their Medicare plan coverage during the Annual Enrollment Period. You may want to even nominate someone in your pharmacy to serve as your “Medicare Champion” who can help educate your patients ahead, and during the open enrollment period.
It’s also a great time to make sure your pharmacy is familiar with PrescribeWellness’ Medicare Plan Review solution. With this tool, you can identify and prioritize patients who are eligible for plan reviews (during the enrollment period, and beyond with patients turning 65). Further, the tool provides a side-by-side comparison that highlights the benefits of each plan. This unique perspective helps your patients make informed decisions about their Medicare coverage, and also helps your customers continue to do business at their favorite pharmacy—yours!
