Just curious Why aren't there healthcare practices that include both physicians and pharmacists under the same roof, of course on a smaller scale than a hospital. Like having the actual practice upstairs and the pharmacy downstairs. Prescriptions could be filled same day, 15 minutes after an appointment or even during the appointment, and the prescribers and pharmacists could have face to face contact. I understand that independent pharmacies are having more difficulty obtaining reimbursement but surely this could be overcome being the designated pharmacy for the practice. I'm positive I'm not the first one who's thought of this but it seems like a net benefit to patient care and would result in greater margins if one were to own the practice and the pharmacy. So what am I missing? There has to be some reason this doesn't exist. Is there a law prohibiting owning both a practice and a pharmacy as a conflict of interest?
