Health Tips & Info

What are the advantages of an onsite pharmacy at the clinic?

Nearly 50 percent of adults ages 20-59 take prescription medications, and half of those are suspected to be not following their doctor’s orders when taking their medications. There are several reasons people don’t take their medications as ordered by their physicians. This is a costly decision for the patient with indirect cost and health implications. A patient who doesn’t follow doctors’ orders concerning medication could experience additional healthcare issues, resulting in higher costs. An onsite pharmacist has a direct line of communication with physicians making follow-ups and refills safer and more comprehensive.

What are the dangers of not following doctors’ orders in terms of taking medication?
A dedicated pharmacy helps doctors impact medication compliance and medical case outcomes. Pharmacists have access to physicians and medical information, which can warn against drug interactions. Pharmacists in on-site clinics also tend to talk less and listen more. By getting to know the patient and their medication history, the pharmacist can better understand why a medication isn’t helping or being appropriately taken and help the individual get back on the right track with a personalized approach.
Why is pharmacy so important in healthcare?
Medication management conducted by pharmacists in conjunction with physicians has been shown to improve medication adherence and clinical outcomes for patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and other health problems. This increase in adherence can have far-reaching effects on both personal and financial health.
