Connecting With Patients Within and Beyond the Exam Room
A typical office visit with a primary care physician lasts only about 15 minutes. Within that limited face time, you need to build rapport with your patient, diagnose their condition, prescribe medications, perhaps order additional studies and plan follow-up care.
When technology is integrated into your electronic health records (EHR) system, it can make a world of difference for busy clinicians, allowing you to access essential information and features without adding the multiple clicks that contribute to burnout.
A price transparency tool that’s integrated into your EHR or e-prescribing solution can provide your patients’ out-of-pocket costs for prescriptions and therapeutically equivalent alternatives in real-time, based on their insurance benefits. Having this information on hand gives you the ability to improve adherence to treatment by discussing these costs during the visit, avoiding “sticker shock” at the pharmacy, and potentially choosing alternative medicines the patient can afford.
