Making Supplement Recommendations using Natural Dispensary
Use Protocols to create and share supplement recommendations with clients.
1) Go to the Protocols section of your client's file, then click the Fast Action Button in the bottom right-hand corner. Optionally, you can create a Practice Better Protocol Template which you can create and reuse with multiple clients.
To create a protocol template, go to your My Practice > Protocol Templates page, then click the Fast Action Button in the bottom-right corner.
2) Select Add supplement recommendation from the options provided to search for products from your Natural Dispensary Catalog:
Once you've selected a supplement you'll be able to set the recommended dose, frequency, and duration.
Once you’ve saved the details of this supplement recommendation, it will be displayed on the protocol summary page with a Natural Dispensary badge.
Click Save > Save and publish to share your protocol with your client:
When you publish a protocol, we'll automatically create a shopping cart in Natural Dispensary for your client's supplements. Natural Dispensary will send an email to your client with instructions on how to place an order.
When you publish a protocol with Natural Dispensary supplements, your clients will receive two notifications:
- A Practice Better "New Protocol Available" email that will include a link for clients to view their protocol in the Client Portal.
- A Natural Dispensary Shopping Cart email with a link to checkout with your recommended supplements.
