Patients want you to fill their prescriptions

Patients want you to fill their prescriptions

If given a choice, three out of four Americans say they'd rather have their prescriptions filled in their doctor's office instead of having to make a separate trip to a pharmacy. Households with kids (83 percent) and people age 25 to 44 (82 percent) were the mostly likely to want this convenience, according to the results of a recent telephone survey of 1,023 adults. The results indicate an opportunity for doctors to improve patient satisfaction and compliance-and perhaps give their revenues a boost-by adding what's known as "point-of-care dispensing" to their practice.

The survey was conducted by Opinion Research on behalf of Purkinje, a healthcare technology and services company.
