Better Medication History = Better Patient Care

Why Should Your Pharmacy Provide Medication Data?

Complete medication history is at the heart of high quality patient care. When physicians have better data during the patient visit, they are better armed to make informed clinical decisions. Many chain pharmacies provide prescription data through health information networks, but independent pharmacies are often left out.
At DrFirst, we’re working to close the data gap by providing the most complete medication history available at the point of the doctor-patient encounter. Through a variety of ways, more and more independent pharmacies choose to entrust us with their data in order to:

  • Be a true partner in patient care
  • Help improve patient safety
  • Enabling prescribers to spot patients at risk for opioid-abuse
  • Build their relationships with local healthcare providers and hospitals
  • Enhance their connection with patients—and the community
