April 2009 Community Call
When integrated medication processes and automated cabinets are in place, pharmacists are enabled to practice more “clinical pharmacy”. Often this means getting pharmacists out of the basement and onto the floors where they are available to patients and their caregivers. One of pharmacy’s services is to promote a safe, effective, and economical list of preferred drugs. With well-designed EHR technology as a tool, pharmacists can proactively influence physicians to choose the “right” drug. They can also measure and report on compliance to formulary preferences. The goal of this session is to explore the options available and present experience with a program currently in place at one of our ecosystem sites.
This topic is both clinical and administrative in nature and will likely be useful to all pharmacy staff, clinical specialists involved in building/maintaining CPOE systems, physicians, nurses and others interested in pharmacy management, both from a clinical and fiscal perspective.
Please feel free to forward this invitation to any colleagues or associates who you believe would find this topic of interest or would like to participate in the discussion.
