Doctors Fear Patients Not Filling Prescriptions
Date:2/10/2009

ations in the past six months. Furthermore, 55 percent of physicians report they wrote more prescriptions for generic medications in 2008 versus 2007. Approximately 50 percent of physicians believe generic drugs are clinically equivalent to brand drugs, whereas the remaining respondents feel it depends on the medication, or in some cases, a generic can be inferior to brand name drugs. Patients are still influential in the prescribing process, with respondents revealing patient preference or request as the two main reasons for selecting a brand name medication over a generic.

When asked what technology helps them save patients money on prescriptions, respondents selected electronic formulary references, followed by electronic medical records. Doctors report primarily turning to a mobile or online reference guide such as Epocrates to identify affordable medications for their patients. Pharmacists were also recognized as a helpful resource to physicians looking for a generic counterpart when they callback with an alternative to the brand name drug prescribed.

"I have many patients who have either lost their job, have no insurance, or are on a limited income and are not able to afford their medications. On most occasions, I look for a cheaper medication, give them samples if available, or get them set up with assistance programs," said Dr. Andrew Moultrie. "I will take the time to help them find a solution so they don't start messing with their medication and do more harm in the long run."
