We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: every independent pharmacy could use a little extra support, and therefore could benefit from adding PrescribeWellness365 (PW365) to its toolkit. By optimizing pharmacy workflow, your dedicated PW365 consultant works as an extension of your pharmacy staff to improve patient outcomes and grow your practice’s bottom line by identifying new revenue opportunities on your behalf—every day.
By identifying your high-value patients, and then proactively recruiting these candidates – through text and other preferred channels – for medication synchronization (med sync), your PW365 consultant grows pharmacy revenue. Your patients are able to speak to a live, licensed pharmacy tech, who will review their medications, and then enroll these patients into your pharmacy’s med sync program.
Going beyond just recruitment, your PW365 consultant also helps to sustain your med sync program by logging into your clinical calendar, available through the PrescribeWellness Patient Engagement Center, to manage your practice’s entire med sync workflow.*
After losing several clinical staff members in just 3 months amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Rita Kay Freeman, RPh, owner and supervising pharmacist of Heritage Pharmacy, was suddenly facing significant staffing and time management challenges. Without the needed resources, Heritage Pharmacy struggled to execute on core business objectives, such as supporting a med sync program, and increasing the pharmacy’s Star ratings.
By implementing PW365, Rita was able to optimize Heritage Pharmacy’s med sync program by leveraging the service’s exclusive push-to-queue capabilities. Rita’s once short-staffed pharmacy team is now able to operate as a highly efficient unit, keeping inventory low, while increasing script count. More notably, Heritage Pharmacy’s med sync program grew considerably, leading to improved patient medication adherence and lower direct and indirect remuneration (DIR) fees.
In 2021, PW365 consultants helped community pharmacies enroll more than 26,000 patients into a med sync program, representing more than 130,000 filled medications. Patients enrolled in a med sync program fill, on average, three scripts more than those not enrolled in med sync.1 With an average of $10 profit per script2, PW365 pharmacies realized an estimated $4 million in additional pharmacy revenue in 2021 through med sync programs sustained by PW365 consultants!
Additionally, through supported med sync programs, our consultants helped PW365 pharmacies fill 81% more prescriptions over non-PW365 pharmacies performing med sync leading to improved adherence, outcomes, and performance metrics.
