DIR fees will always take a chunk out of your revenue source and delayed reimbursements affect pharmacy cash flow... To keep your business growing, it's imperative that you diversify your revenue streams in innovative ways to account for these losses in prescription revenue. 

Front-end sales 

Revenue from OTC sales is pure cash in your pharmacy's pocket -- no dealing with the hassles of insurance reimbursements. 

Pharmacy Initiatives 

  • Nutrient Depletion: Engage with patients who would benefit from taking an OTC supplement to increase supplement sales.  
  • Birthday OTC Promo: Offer patients a coupon on their special day to encourage them to purchase front-end merchandise.

Value-based care 

With healthcare shifting from fee-for-service to fee-for-performance, there's much more monetary incentive to prioritize value-based care in any healthcare business. 

Pharmacy Initiatives

  • Flu Vaccinations: Promote flu vaccinations to keep your patients healthy and increase revenue!
  • Naloxone Intervention: Advise patients taking opioids regularly to always have Naloxone handy -- available without a prescription and it can save their life.
