At Mevesi, we know COVID-19 has impacted the way you provide service to your customers. We want to help. Our team has built a series of custom reports to help you identify high-risk patients who have refills past due or upcoming refills. We hope this information allows you to provide special accommodations to keep those who are most vulnerable safe. We suggest reaching out to patients identified on the reports to ensure they have a low-risk way to get their medications (e.g., delivery, curbside pickup, or drive through).
