Hand in hand with any solution being pursued, Partners in Pharmacy understands that delivering superior patient care is critical to your organization’s mission. Let our experience and expertise lead you to the improvements you are looking for.
Partners in Pharmacy knows the regs: CMS, DPH, JCAHO, HRSA, or others. Pharmacy policies and procedures must align with the tenets and specific requirements of each regulatory body.
While every pharmacy is required to have a policy & procedure manual, simply possessing a generic P&P manual is insufficient. The manual must contain the pharmacy’s required policies and reflect the actual procedures of the pharmacy. What you have in writing and what “is” may be two different realities.
Partners in Pharmacy can help you get to the bottom of it all, and provide your team with valuable insights and recommendations for building effective and compliant policies and procedures. We’ll help you develop a P&P manual that is both specific and comprehensive.
We understand that a pharmacy is a living, evolving entity. We will create a process that will allow your pharmacy manager to update and modify the policies, when change comes.
Partners in Pharmacy’s regulatory experts can perform mock inspections and identify areas of weakness and concern. Our consultants will, upon completion of the inspection, prepare a gap analysis and corrective recommendations and discuss these with you and your team. If significant issues are found, our consultants are available to assist in the implementation of the corrective actions and perform a re-inspection to confirm compliance.
