Three Ways Your Wellevate Online Dispensary Works Hard for You
You know that small lifestyle changes can pay big health dividends. Did you know the same is also true for your practice? Things like making Wellevate signups part of new patient visits or entering recommendations at the end of every patient visit can mean the difference between a few hundred and several thousand dollars each year in passive income.
In a recent Wellevate survey, more than 60% of holistic practitioners said patient adherence to protocols was the number one problem they needed their online dispensary to solve. While Wellevate can’t follow patients home for you (that would be creepy), it does provide quick and easy ways personalize and send recommendations and refill reminders directly to their inboxes. And, with a just few clicks, you can see if your patients are ordering or refilling with you.
Expert tip: Keep patients engaged with you and your practice throughout the year by sending proactive protocols or recommendations for seasonal issues like cold and flu or allergies, and any other area that your practice might focus on. Not only does this help increase patient engagement, but it shows patients you’re still engaged with their treatment plan, too.
Wellevate’s library of peer-authored -reviewed protocols can be shared, saved, copied and customized for your patients specific needs. So can the protocols you create. No more time spent drafting the same base recommendation over and over or staff wondering which version is the latest and greatest. Leveraging these tools helps increase the time you can spend on patient interactions, staying on top trends in your discipline, and general day-to-day organization.
Expert Tip: Draft a set of standard or base protocols in Wellevate for conditions you recommend regularly. As you encounter patients who would benefit from the protocol, introduce them to Wellevate (if you haven’t already), it takes just seconds to select the desired protocol and send the recommendation.
Healthy income and steady profits are essential for any-sized practice to continue providing patients with the highest quality and standard of care. The passive income you earn from your online dispensary could buy new diagnostic equipment, send staff to education conferences and seminars or even something as basic as upgrading your laptop or refreshing your branding. With Wellevate, you choose the profit margin you’d like, while also having the flexibility to set discounts for all or just portion of patients. You can’t force your patients to purchase from you, but you can make it easier with features like auto-refill.
Expert Tip: Make Wellevate part of every patient’s treatment plan to increase the likelihood they’ll buy—and continue to buy—the high-quality supplements you’ve carefully selected for them. And, with more patients on Wellevate, the more refills are likely to stay with you; more refills = higher earnings and higher earnings = a healthier practice.
