Nurse as Agent LTC Pharmacy / On Call Pharmacists can help

Changes over the last year have helped to clarify and expand the role of nurses as agents of physicians in the long-term care setting.  These new rules were developed to clarify long standing pharmacy / nursing practices and to expedite the delivery of vital controlled substance medications to patients in the long-term care settings.  But are they enough?  How have ‘nurse agent’ issues impacted your pharmacy and / or nursing practice?  Are your patients receiving their pain meds more expeditiously or have we just created an additional workload?

On Call Pharmacy Solutions- we’re here to help.

Outsourcing is not a bad word!

Outsource your pharmacy phone calls to our on-call pharmacists!  Wipikedia defines outsourcing as the contracting out of a business function – commonly one previously performed in-house – to an external provider.  The reasons one may look to outsource certain aspects of their business to another provider are numerous and include such issues as: cost savings, access to talent, tax benefits, improving quality of services and decreasing workload on current staff.  So why does outsourcing make us nervous?  Is outsourcing synonymous with lack of control? Does the word outsourcing bring visions of off-shoring?  Challenge yourself to think outside of the box. What aspect of your daily pharmacy operations might be better handled by someone else?

You probably outsource your IT responsibilities and maybe you even use a reverse distributor.  You outsource your books to your accountant, your deliveries to a courier service.  Why not consider outsourcing your after hours pharmacist calls?

On Call Pharmacy Solutions can help!  We are dedicated to handling your pharmacies emergency calls. If your pharmacists are tired of being on call nights and weekends- we can help.  Give us a call today 1-877-977-4662

Remote Pharmacist services

Call it what you will- on call pharmacist, remote pharmacist, virtual pharmacist, e-pharmacist, off site pharmacist… the premise is the same.  You are seeking pharmacist services and do not require the traditional employer / employee relationship requiring an on-site pharmacist.

Perhaps you are seeking to fill a temporary role- opening a new pharmacy and require drug database review?   Maybe you are a long term care pharmacy interested in off site order entry or verification to enable your staff to attend to other duties such as MTM.  Are you a DME provider, mail order pharmacy or compounding pharmacy seeking a pharmacist to answer your after hours phone?  Are you struggling to provide 24 hour pharmacist availability to your clients?

How can you apply an off-site pharmacist to your business?  Let me count the ways!

24 hour customer service, medication identification, prescription reordering service, pharmacist answering service, order entry and verification, literature review, arranging prescription delivery and order tracking, medication label review, urgent first dose dispensing, on-call pharmacist, proofreader, chart review, ask a pharmacist program, claims adjustment, med reconciliation, physician calls, nursing questions, reminder calls and more.
