Workplace injuries are certainly bad news for you and your employees. Point-of-care medication dispensing can lead to a quicker employee recovery, less medication dispensed throughout the duration of the claim, fewer unnecessary procedures and an earlier return to work. This not only benefits the injured employee, it also benefits the employer who is tasked with managing healthcare costs while ensuring business demands are still met. It is in everyone’s best interest to get the injured worker back on the job as soon as possible. Point-of-care medication dispensing improves the quality, timeliness and cost-effectiveness of health care in today’s workers’ compensation market.
The sooner an injured worker starts receiving proper medical treatment, the earlier he or she can get back to work and the less time an employer needs to find additional assistance to cover the injured employee’s workload. AHCS works hand-in-hand with stakeholders to make it easier for patients to obtain their medications immediately which accelerates their road to recovery.
Physicians often dispense the same formulary of medications as pharmacies, with the cost-saving benefit of generics where possible. AHCS can work within all formularies determined by an employer, a third-party administrator (TPA) or a pharmacy benefits manager (PBM) to further effectuate desired cost-savings. AHCS can also electronically submit prescription bills for the physician, streamlining the process for everyone.
