Antibiotics Available in the Lobby at Atracare: Skip the Line at the Pharmacy
Atracare will become the first medical practice in Delaware to offer InstyMeds; a state-of-the-art medication dispensing machine designed to expedite the delivery of medications to patients. InstyMed machines are designed to get sick patients their medications immediately so that they can go home and begin to feel better, quicker.
Most commonly needed antibiotics along with cough and cold medications are dispensed from the machine. The formulary of products was designed to deliver medications that are needed
right away, like Amoxicillin for ear infections, Tamiflu for influenza (flu), or antibiotic drops for pink eye.
Pharmacist and CEO, William Albanese explains the need for innovation behind this improvement:
The idea here is to alleviate the pain that patients experience from infection or illness as quickly as possible. Putting the medications in the patient’s hands as they leave the clinic also increases compliance with the medications. Studies show that only about 70% of prescriptions get filled when they are sent to the pharmacy. InstyMeds has a 97% compliance rate. That’s huge.
The delivery of medications at the clinic also means that patients can skip an added stop at the pharmacy. At this moment, pharmacies are experiencing staffing shortages, closures, and
medication shortages (google “Pharmageddon” for more). Therefore, access to medications is everything to patients.
InstyMed machines at Atracare are all cash pay and the costs are low with most of the medications priced at an even $20. There is no need to worry about insurance authorizations.
You get your medication at the visit and avoid the pharmacy wait.
