Quick Summary: Prescription is a very strong pillar of our healthcare ecosystem. But the not-so-good thing about prescription is that it gets expired. In other words, prescriptions are generally valid for 15 to 30 days only.
After that, patients must renew the prescription. And here is from where the real struggle at both patients’ and doctors’ fronts start. Because the entire prescription renewal process is executed on calls and manually which eats up the time of doctors and keeps the error window open.
But with the prescription renewal tool, we can take this entire process online and make prescription renewal a matter of minutes.
The problems with the conventional prescription renewal workflow
The fact is healthcare that worked so precisely before 2020 will no longer work with the same standards of quality and workflows.
Because pandemic changed the mindset of both patients and healthcare providers and that changed mindset is now causing a positive change in every healthcare workflow.
However, several workflows are still executed the same ways – or rather – the same problematic ways!
Following are the top problems the current prescription renewal workflow has.
Overall, the conventional prescription renewal process puts both doctors and patients in a situation where nothing happens effortlessly and in a timely manner.
How does the online prescription renewal tool solve all these problems?
In a single sentence, the prescription renewal tool takes the entire prescription renewal workflow online where everything happens effortlessly and in a timely manner.
In case you want to learn it in detail, here it is.
How does the online prescription renewal tool work?: The workflow
Before we move ahead, it is worth noting that the prescription renewal tool is equipped with two dashboards – one for doctors and one for patients.
By logging into their respective dashboard using correct credentials, patients can add prescription renewal requests and doctors can process those requests.
The following is the entire workflow of how online prescription renewal software works.
How does an online prescription renewal tool make money?
It follows the business model of the marketplace under which there is one master admin who takes a fixed percentage of commission from doctors and patients.
For example, if a doctor charges $50 for a one-time prescription renewal request, the online prescription renewal tool takes 5% of the commission from the patient and 15% of the commission from the doctor.
This way, you make a profit of $10 ($2.5 from the patient and $7.5 from the doctor).
There is one more simplified way to make money with prescription renewal software. You can charge a fixed amount per every prescription renewal from the doctor regardless of the type of prescription renewal request.
