Customized Medications Directly From Your Practice
One size does not fit all in dermatology medicine. SKNV supports dermatologists seeking the right custom medicines to target a diverse set of patients and skin conditions.
Mass-produced medicines have many inactive ingredients and potential allergens that may not be compatible with every patient. With SKNV, physicians are able to order custom medicines for in-practice dispensing to target individual patient needs.
SKNV enables doctors to retake control of their prescribing choices.

Studies have shown that up to 30% of patients never get their prescriptions filled. When patients leave your office with medication in hand, compliance rates dramatically increase. In-practice dispensing of custom medicine has several benefits for patients. Custom medicines are created to better meet the medical needs of your patients. The cost can be significantly less, eliminating the need to work through insurance approvals. Your patients leave with their medicine in hand.
With the added convenience of in-practice dispensing, you consult with your patient right when they get their medicine versus sending them to a pharmacy. You get to have an open discussion about medication intervals, completing the regimen as directed and instructing them of potential interactions with any other medications you know they are taking. Compliance with drug therapy is 60% to 70% better when medications are delivered at the point-of-care when compared to a written prescription. Care and satisfaction are quickly improved because you monitor your patient’s process and progress while providing concierge-level service for your patients.
You will spend the about same amount of time on prescription related issues as you do today (on average 1-1.5 hours a day per Physician). Currently, that time is spent making your practice no revenue. By dispensing prescriptions, you convert lost time into revenue for your practice, while providing better care for your patients.
