How much time and money per year will a synchronized prescription renewal process save my practice?

Consider a hypothetical scenario of an internal medicine practice that has not implemented a synchronized prescription renewal process. This practice has 1,000 patients with chronic illness with an average of five medications per patient. Every year, each patient makes an average of two calls per prescription. Each call lasts about two minutes. These factors result in more than 300 hours of physician and staff time spent on prescription renewals per year.

The calculators below will automatically generate the amount of time saved per year and the annual savings that could be gained by implementing a synchronized prescription renewal process. Use the dropdown menu in each calculator to select the numbers that reflect your practice.
