Abstract (Summary)

Premier orthopaedic surgery clinics will offer a one stop shop for patients. Many orthopaedic surgeons prescribe Durable Medical Equipment (DME) to patients during their visit but patients are required to go to a local DME store to fill their prescription. With Elite Ortho DME, Inc, items can be stocked and sold to patients at the time of the visit with the provider. Patients will benefit from immediate relief and stabilization. They also save time from having to travel to another location for the needed DME. Providers will benefit from the increase revenue collection from DME products. Providers also get the peace of mind knowing the patient is leaving the clinic in stable condition. Overall, the quality of patient care is improved and patient satisfaction will increase.
