Jun 30, 2016: Birmingham, Ala. – PharmaPoint is proud to announce that Physicians East is the newest healthcare practice to open a point-of-care retail pharmacy. Located in Greenville, North Carolina, Physicians East offers a broad range of medical, surgical and Ob/Gyn services to their patients.
“Since 1965, our physicians, surgeons and staff have worked together to build a reputation of excellence in patient-focused care,” said Scott Avery, MD, President at Physicians East. “The addition of a point-of-care pharmacy is the latest piece of the puzzle for complete care all under one roof.”
Prescription medication is the largest therapeutic treatment for any disease state, and research shows that half of all Americans are not taking medications as prescribed.
- 75.1% of physician office visits involve drug therapy
- 31% of all prescriptions are not filled the first time
- 29% of patients are not completing the prescribed medication therapy
Pharmacy East will help create better patient outcomes with adherence services such as OnePoint medication synchronization, RxMobile, Medication Therapy Management (MTM), infusion center and home delivery.
“The goal of the healthcare team at Physicians East is to provide high quality, efficient and personalized care to the patients they serve,” said Paul Albano, Senior Vice President of Pharmacy Operations for PharmaPoint. “Having a pharmacist as an integral member of the patient care team will help them surpass that goal. The ease, convenience and cost effectiveness of having a pharmacy at the place you receive your medical care allows patients to experience complete care the way it’s meant to be.”
