Seamless Workflow

We utilize a paperless document management system, DocuTrack, to track all faxes coming into our workflow. Each fax is time/date stamped. This form of document management has tremendous reporting and auditing potential, including every employee that reviewed the document within our system. Our pharmacy management software contains a workflow process that tracks an order from the time it arrives until it is scanned into the delivery tote prior to leaving for your facility. Through the pharmacy web portal, your staff can see where an order is in process without calling the pharmacy.

One-on-One Medication Order Entry

With HealthDirect, an order-entry pharmacy technician is dedicated to your facility so that your team is comfortable with the order process and confident in our accuracy and understanding. Your dedicated pharmacy technician works to ensure coverage of your residents. You’ll always receive proactive notification of any high-cost or non-covered medications before the order is dispensed. Your technician then works with the prescriber to obtain the appropriate prior authorization and/or work with our pharmacists to make recommendations to change the order to a covered medication.

Our pharmacists care about the medication safety of your residents as much as you do.
