Pharmacy Transitions
New Opportunities are Before Us!

It is interesting to note that we are witnessing some rather important transitions occurring in pharmacy. One of the transitions that I thought I would not see in my career—is the perceptions from a variety of stakeholders (patients, other health care providers, legislators, and regulators) of pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs). This has been a battle... click here for the rest of the article.

Flip the Pharmacy Change Package
for July 2022
Opioid Progression
An Opioid Pledge
 
During July 2022, we are focusing on providing each patient receiving an opioid prescription with an Opioid Pledge. Within this month’s Change Package, you can download the editable document to make specific changes within your pharmacy and begin providing the Opioid Pledge to your patients. We understand this workflow implementation requires quite a bit of thought and planning. Please view within the Change Package how other pharmacies have implemented the Opioid Pledge.

Coaching for Chronic Care

As Ashley Duggins, PharmD, was calling patients for monthly adherence check-ins, she discovered that one patient was several months overdue on filling her diabetes medications. Upon further discussion with the patient and a review of her prescription history, Ashley learned that the patient had recently adopted two foster children, one of which was a newborn. As she acclimated to her new role as a caregiver, the patient admitted to neglecting her own health and allowing her A1C to creep upwards.

Special thanks to RxSafe for helping tell Ashley's story and for sponsoring Flip the Pharmacy.
