We Make the LTC Pharmacy Transition Easy for you.
Long-term care pharmacy transitions do not have to be stressful.
That’s why we’ve developed an integrated transition strategy.
Simplified protocols, timed coordination and team collaboration deliver seamless pharmacy transitions with HealthDirect.
Your HealthDirect pharmacy team guides you through:
During our initial meeting,we work with you to learn all about your facility, including: general facility information, current cycle and last survey dates, loading dock and delivery information, key personnel contact information, meal and med pass times and standing order lists.
Together we’ll identify key dates and gather resident fact sheets, as well as insurance and physician orders. This “road map” guides your facility in submitting information to your order entry technician. Your technician establishes a secure data transmission protocol.
Prior to start date, HealthDirect in-services your staff on all pharmacy policies and procedures. A dedicated pharmacy team works with you to develop customized training solutions. No cookie-cutter training here!
To ensure a seamless transition, your HealthDirect team is onsite the day of start-up. We help check that all systems and protocols are running smoothly and all questions are answered.
After launch, our team continues to fully support your team via a transition recap meeting, continued HealthDirect management support and a weekly visit from your HealthDirect account manager. Plus, a financial impact review is conducted at the end of the first month.
