Has your pharmacy been considering offering prescription delivery services since COVID-19 struck? Here are some of the main benefits of doing so should you decide to. 

Due to the growing demand for our corporate or large bookings and travel testing for COVID-19 antibody or active PCR test collection our Prescription Delivery Services are on hold. 

COVID-19 has caused nearly every industry to change how it operates. Pharmacies included. With many of their customers focused on social distancing and staying home as much as possible for the foreseeable future, pharmacies that can quickly pivot and provide delivery prescription services are poised to gain a great deal of new customers. Here are some additional benefits that pharmacies can expect to see if they institute this considerate service offering amid the current pandemic.


Looking for COVID-19 antibody testing?

If you're looking for COVID-19 antibody testing in Calgary, Ichor Blood Services has you covered. We've recently begun accepting pre-bookings for our COVID-19 serology antibody testing collection service, which will allow you to have your blood collected in the comfort and safety of your own home. Your sample is then shipped to our laboratory testing partner, who will determine if you have potentially been exposed to the virus and now have the antibodies for it.

The benefits of providing prescription delivery services

Running a pharmacy can be a challenging task with its many moving parts. It's understandable that you may be hesitant to add more onto your plate by undertaking a prescription delivery service. But if your pharmacy institutes a prescription delivery service, there are a number of benefits you can expect to see after rolling it out. Let's take a look at some of the main ones.

Better customer retention

A large amount of people using prescription drugs do not follow the directions of the medication as they should. According to one estimate, roughly 30 to 50 per cent of medications are not taken as prescribed. The main reasons for this jarring statistic are linked to the fact that some patients have difficulty making it to the pharmacy to pick up their prescription, or they just forget to pick it up. Either way, that's a lot of business pharmacies are missing out on every year. By providing your customers with prescription delivery services, they'll never have to worry about making it to the pharmacy or forgetting about their medication again. Helping your patients adhere to their medication better can increase customer retention and the amount of sales you make.

Increased customer base

By offering prescription delivery services, your pharmacy can increase its customer base by reaching a whole new subset of patients. This includes patients who are unable to leave their homes due to medical reasons (or COVID-19), as well as patients who are simply too busy to fit stopping at the pharmacy into their hectic lives. Compared to pharmacies who don't offer prescription delivery services, the added convenience you can provide these two new types of customers will cause them to continually use your pharmacy over their previous ones. 

Less work for your pharmacists

Having a prescription delivery service at your pharmacy will free up your pharmacists and technicians from having to provide as much customer service since there won't be as many people coming in to fill their prescriptions. They'll now be able to fill their orders faster and more efficiently, which will be important since you'll now have more customers to serve. You can also lower your overall overhead costs by instituting extended hours for customers to order their prescriptions via mobile means and after-hours delivery, allowing you to use a much smaller staff to fulfill an increased amount of orders.
