Weird statin stat

Published May 14, 2021

A study of the records of almost 11,000 patients found that prescribers prescribe fewer statins as the day goes on. And we’re not just talking early morning vs. late afternoon: “[C]ompared with patients who came in at 8:00 am, patients who came in at 9:00 am were 12% less likely to get a prescription. Patients coming in for noon appointments were 37% less likely to get a statin prescription.”
