NP Script: Embracing the Next Evolution in Patient Care
An innovative and popular service by Natural Partners is NP Script, a free virtual patient dispensary that has revolutionized patient compliance for integrative medicine practitioners. Practitioners can extend their care beyond the bounds of their office by ensuring their patients are supplied with supplements that align with their treatment protocols. Under the connected care of a licensed health care practitioner, patients can easily log in to their doctor’s personalized storefront and order supplements under their recommended treatment plan, as well as access thousands of products that cater to their wellness needs. Practitioners can send personalized recommendations directly to their patients with an E-script, which is sent directly to their patient’s inbox. The patient can then add their practitioner’s recommendations directly into their cart for purchase from their practitioner’s online dispensary. Plus, physicians can utilize NP Script to market to their patients with customized communication tools. Through this service they can use templates to send email blasts to their database, making engagement with their patients even easier.
