Medication Synchronization and Appointment-Based Pharmacy: A Win-Win for Patients and Pharmacies


Medication synchronization (med sync)

is a process of consolidating multiple medications into one refill. This can help patients to take their medications more consistently, which can lead to better health outcomes.


Appointment-based pharmacy

is a model of care in which patients schedule appointments with their pharmacists to discuss their medications and to receive counseling and education.


Both med sync and appointment-based pharmacy can be valuable tools for independent pharmacy owners. Med sync can help to increase revenue and improve patient outcomes, while appointment-based pharmacy can help to build relationships with patients and improve patient satisfaction.


Here are 10 ways that med sync and appointment-based pharmacy can benefit independent pharmacy owners:


Increased patient volume:

Med sync can help to increase patient volume by making it easier for patients to get their medications. This is because med sync can help to reduce the number of times patients have to come to the pharmacy, which can save them time and hassle.

Med sync can help to increase patient retention by providing a valuable service that patients appreciate. This is because med sync can help patients to take their medications more consistently, which can lead to better health outcomes.


Increased patient satisfaction:

Med sync can help to increase patient satisfaction by making it easier for patients to get the care they need. This is because med sync can help patients to get their medications on time and to avoid running out of medications.


Increased patient engagement:

Med sync can help to increase patient engagement by providing a more personalized level of care. This is because med sync can help pharmacists to better understand patients' medication needs and to develop a plan to help patients take their medications more consistently.


Increased medication adherence:

Reduced medication costs:

Med sync can help to reduce medication costs by helping patients to take their medications more consistently. This is because medication non-adherence is a major driver of medication costs.


Increased patient safety:

Med sync can help to increase patient safety by helping to prevent medication errors. This is because med sync can help to ensure that patients are taking the correct medications at the correct doses.


Improved patient outcomes:

Med sync can help to increase pharmacy revenue by providing a valuable service that patients are willing to pay for. This is because med sync can help to improve patient adherence, reduce medication costs, and improve patient outcomes.


Increased pharmacy market share:

Med sync can help to increase pharmacy market share by providing a valuable service that patients are not able to get from other pharmacies. This is because med sync is a relatively new service that is not yet widely offered by pharmacies.


If you are an independent pharmacy owner, I encourage you to consider adopting medication synchronization and appointment-based pharmacy. These services can help you to improve your bottom line and to provide better care for your patients.
