First Fill Prescription

Allow patients to fill their prescription before discharge

National studies show that an average of 20 percent of prescriptions go unfilled. If they do get filled, only 50 percent of patients will take their medicines as their physician prescribed, which can lead to readmissions and increased costs.

First Fill prescription allows patients to fill their prescription before discharge through the hospital’s outpatient pharmacy. Not only is it convenient, it gives patients the opportunity to ask the pharmacist questions before leaving the hospital. Your hospital can be assured that the first 30-days of medications have been filled, which increases medication compliance and reduces readmissions.
