Clinical and Administrative Consulting
As an additional benefit in partnering with PDC Pharmacy, partner providers have access to two forms of consultative services, each designed to garner efficiencies and encourage medication administration best practices.
Clinical consulting involves a PDC Pharmacy consulting pharmacist visiting on-site with the partner provider’s nursing staff on a routine basis to review all aspects of medication regimen, storage, and documentation.
MAR/Med Chart Reviews
The consulting pharmacist works closely with the partner provider to review medication charts in an effort to identify any harmful medication interactions and duplications. Medication Management Reviews are conducted for each patient and include a thorough review of agency staff administration practices. This service also provides an opportunity for the partner provider’s nursing staff to receive specific recommendations on alternative medications or formulations that may increase the effectiveness of the medication regimens provided to the partner provider’s residents. Additionally, the consulting pharmacist identifies trends and provide progress reports on medication utilization and cost containment opportunities.
The consulting pharmacist ensures that the partner provider’s staff is apprised of updates within the continuously evolving state and federal regulations to maintain ongoing compliance and works to help address any specific areas of concern.
