Happy New Year from CompleteRx! We’re excited to get this year started and on a roll. But first, let’s take a look back at our final month of 2015.
McKesson recently identified the Five Health System Pharmacy Trends to Watch in 2016 and discussed these trends at the recent ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting and Exhibition last week. The trends look at how pharmacy can impact the hospital financially and new regulations that may affect hospital pharmacy operations and reimbursement.
Each month we feature an employee on the blog to share more about our talented staff that make up the CompleteRx team. This month, we’re featuring Ryan Reddick, Clinical Pharmacist at our Tennessee-based hospital pharmacy. Ryan has been with CompleteRx since 2012 and has been an integral part of helping to lead an HCAHPS initiative at the hospital.
We’re continuing our “CompleteRxcellence in Clinical Pharmacy Series” with one last post featuring Kim Peter, Clinical Staff Pharmacist at our New Mexico-based hospital.
The holidays have come up quick and we were thankful to celebrate Thanksgiving together this past month and are gearing up for a month of spreading holiday joy.
As we noted in our last post, ASHP celebrates 50 years of excellence in Clinical Pharmacy at The 50th ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting and Exhibition in New Orleans Dec. 6-10th, and we launched a new blog series “CompleteRxcellence in Clinical Pharmacy”. This week we’re featuring Paul Green, PharmD, Clinical Pharmacy Manager at our two hospital system in the northeast.
As ASHP celebrates 50 years of excellence in Clinical Pharmacy at The 50th ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting and Exhibition in New Orleans Dec. 6-10th, we are launching our new blog series “CompleteRxcellence in Clinical Pharmacy”. This blog series will feature three of our clinical pharmacists leading up to ASHP Midyear and highlight their successes, challenges in the field, and what they love most about being a Clinical Pharmacist for CompleteRx.
The month of October was full of events for the CompleteRx Team. Here’s a look at we were up to last month. We hosted our last webinar of the year focused on the 340B Program and Implications of the Mega Guidance. Ken Maxik, Director of Patient Safety and Pharmacy Compliance, led the discussion which reviewed changes to the 340B program, eligibility requirements and exceptions to individual qualification of the program. View the full recording of the webinar to learn more.
A new study shows that pharmacists may be able to help reduce hospital readmissions by phoning discharged patients to check on their medications.
Each month we feature an employee on the blog to share more about our talented staff that make up the CompleteRx team. This month, we’re featuring Lisa Wagoner, Pharmacist and Clinical Manager for our East Texas-based hospital at CompleteRx.
