E-Prescribing Benefits All PIH Primary Care Patients
Calling your pharmacy direct makes getting routine prescriptions refilled easier, faster and more efficient for all Partners in Health primary care patients, thanks to an e-prescribing system connecting PIH and pharmacies. Some patients have been using the system for several months.
Effective November 1, 2011, all patients of physicians in our Primary Care Division (Family Practice, Internal Medicine, and Pulmonary Medicine) are to call their pharmacy for refills of routine medications. The pharmacy will contact PIH electronically for authorization. This new approach does not apply to all patients of the PIH Women’s Center at this time. Read more.
PIH Now Using DCH Laboratory
Partners in Health now uses Dearborn County Hospital Laboratory for all blood work, cultures and pathology specimens.
Patients need to determine whether DCH Laboratory is a preferred lab in their network. If DCH is not a preferred lab, we will be happy to give you an order to take to your preferred laboratory. If you choose to have lab work performed at DCH and this results in a higher charges, Partners in Health is not responsible. Exception: If LABCORP is your preferred laboratory provider, DCH can forward your specimens to LABCORP for processing. If you want your specimen sent to LABCORP, you must notify us at the time of service each time specimens are collected.

Dispose of Needles, Syringes Properly
No one would throw a ticking time bomb in the trash. But some experts say that’s what happens when people do not properly dispose of needles and syringes used for at-home injections. More than 9 million syringes are used annually for injections outside traditional U.S. healthcare facilities, and far too many wind up in landfills and other places where contamination poses health risks. PIH now offers patients a safe and easy way to dispose of needles and syringes. Two container sizes are available – 100 capacity ($9.99) and 300 capacity ($13.99). Simply return the container to our office when it is full and we’ll be sure it is properly incinerated.

Partners in Health is a medical group of seven
doctors and a certified nurse midwife practicing in the areas of Family Practice, Internal Medicine and Obstetrics/Gynecology.
The practice is located in downtown Lawrenceburg, Indiana, a beltway community off I-275 at Exit 16 on the west of the tri-state
Greater Cincinnati area. The group formed in 1999, though several doctors have been established in the area much longer.
The group practices in its own 30,000 square foot medical complex that opened in 2005 and overlooks the Ohio River and Kentucky
hills. The location and the offices, which sit above a two-story parking garage, offer convenient access to patients.
The state-of-the-art facility allows doctors to do on-site stress tests, echocardiograms, carotid doppler tests, and
Doctors describe the group philosophy as “patient first.” The word partner is less about a group of
doctors in a practice and more about how they establish relationships and work with patients. A nursing and administrative
staff of nearly fifty skilled and capable professionals supports our doctors. Electronic medical recordkeeping and other
systems create efficiencies so our doctors can be doctors.
Partners in Health celebrated its 10th anniversary in September 2009.
