Pharmacy Consultant

WB Consultant Pharmacists regularly review every resident’s medication chart. Chart reviews reveal possibly dangerous medication interactions and duplications. They also provide an opportunity for Pharmacists to recommend alternative medications or formulations that may increase the effectiveness of medication regimens or possible cost savings for your facility.

 

Below are some of the services WB Consultant Pharmacists provide:

  • Medication Therapy Management (MTM) to improve outcomes while reducing costs

  • Monthly medication regimen review to reduce medication side-effect risks, optimize medication therapies, identify possible therapeutic interchanges for equal or better outcomes and reduced hospital admissions

  • Pharmacy in-services

  • Committee participation

  • All monitoring required by local, state and federal regulations
