Making medication a priority

We know the needs of the elderly are complex and unique — and should be handled with care. As experts in geriatric medication management, our consultant pharmacists are given some of the most extensive training in the industry. This training supports the consultant’s ability to identify potential overuse, misuse and underuse of medications and to suggest changes that optimize outcomes for your residents. Your consultant pharmacist has two propriety resources to guide clinical and cost-saving therapeutic interventions:

  • Omnicare’s Geriatric Pharmaceutical Care Guidelines. Recognized as a leading formulary and clinical reference manual for long-term care, these guidelines are endorsed by the American Geriatrics Society.
  • The Omnicare System for Clinical and Cost Outcomes Retrieval (OSC20R). This state-of-the-art clinical decision support software program is fully integrated with our pharmacy dispensing computer system, allowing consultant pharmacists to further identify potential clinical, regulatory and cost-containment opportunities to benefit your community.

Medication evaluation

Your consultant pharmacist will work closely with you to regularly review medication charts. These evaluations reveal possibly harmful medication interactions and duplications, and provide an opportunity for pharmacists to recommend alternative medications or formulations that may increase the effectiveness of your resident medication regimens. Our advanced in-pharmacy automation offers another level of patient safety, so you can confidently administer the right medication to the right patient at the right time. For many customer we also offer medication dispensing, for those all-important first doses or if you ever need time-sensitive medications.

Admission and discharge solutions

Discharge planning is not complete without assuring your resident has the medications they need to continue their care at home. We handle many of the details, so your residents have one less task to worry about. For skilled buildings, we can also simplify the resident transition from hospital to facility working with hospital discharge planners and care coordinators.
