The Case for Office-Based Dispensing

By Kauley Jones

Holistic Primary Care

Vol. 12, No. 2. Summer, 2011

In a recent national study, three out of four Americans said that, given the choice, they would prefer to fill their medication prescriptions in their doctor’s office instead of having to go to a pharmacy. Unfortunately, most people are not given that choice.

Only a small percentage of US doctors currently offer office-based prescription fulfillment or dispensing of natural products. Thankfully, more are considering this option. It provides an excellent opportunity to improve your patients’ clinical outcomes while also improving the fiscal health of your practice.

Office-based dispensing makes sense on so many levels. For one, it ensures patients have the therapeutic products they need before they leave your office. Patients who are ill, in pain, or very busy–and who isn’t these days—appreciate the convenience of being able to purchase their medications and supplements at the doctor’s office. It spares them a separate trip and long wait at the pharmacy or health food store.
