Delivery Tip

In many situations your facility doesn’t have to check in the medication when our driver arrives, you can do it when it’s convenient for your staff over the next 24 hours. Our delivery drivers also pick up your facility’s returns daily to assure prompt return and credit of discontinued medications.

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.

Timely Order Verification

Accuracy should never be taken for granted. Due to the complex nature of the medication regimens common in long-term care, a sophisticated clinical screening software program is absolutely necessary. Our pharmacy software system screens all new orders at data entry and alerts the verification pharmacist as well. Our pharmacists care about the medication safety of your residents as much as you do.

Our pharmacists:

  • Review orders for appropriate dosing frequency, indication and duplicate therapy
  • Perform allergy and adverse drug reaction screens on new orders
  • Determine pharmacokinetic and isoenzyme inhibition differences among medications within a category
  • Create care plans for infusion therapy and other high risk residents
  • Determine lab monitoring requirements
  • Review potential drug interactions and make clinical and cost saving recommendations
  • Review information is communicated to facility as needed

Accurate Medication Dispensing

To ensure accuracy of dispensing, our pharmacy uses a triple check system that utilizes bar-codes and scanners that ensure right patient, right medication, right time for each medication dispensed. Our multi-verification process ensures all medication orders are verified by a licensed pharmacist both before dispensing and again before it leaves our pharmacy.
