Clinical Partnership & Risk Mitigation

Our industry-leading consultant pharmacists are dedicated to providing clinical support that’s customized to the individual needs of your facility and staff.

 

Consultant Pharmacists

Omnicare Consultant Pharmacists are valued members of a facility's interdisciplinary team, helping them to achieve optimal outcomes for their residents - and their bottom line.

Consultant Pharmacist service begins with an introductory meeting with key staff members. Armed with a thorough understanding of the facility's unique needs, the consultant is able to provide a tailored program that encompasses the educational, regulatory and cost-containment concerns of the facility while assuring appropriate medication therapy for each resident.

Every Consultant Pharmacist visit includes one-on-one time with key leadership before and after the consulting session to ensure that critical information is shared and addressed promptly.

Reducing Risk

Monitoring medication management

To make things easier for you, we offer in-pharmacy automation. This state-of-the-art system offers another level of patient safety by dispensing medications more accurately and reducing time spent on correcting errors, helping your community avoid risk. Plus our clinical decision support software program, Omnicare System for Clinical and Cost Outcomes Retrieval (OSC20R), is fully integrated with our pharmacy dispensing computer system and further identifies potential clinical and regulatory opportunities — all helping to keep your community’s residents safer.

Staff education

In order to advance staff knowledge and help reduce risk in your community, we provide extensive educational tools and resources. For example, our Fracture Prevention Program is one of our major clinical programs that focus on risk reduction resources for both falls and fractures. And our Fall Risk Reduction Program includes assessment tools for fall risk and fall incidents, a fall incident report and a variety of clinical reference resources. These tools, among our other offerings, are designed to mitigate risk, which in turn will help your community thrive.

Infusion therapy support

Infusion medications for long-term care residents are prescribed every day. But with our support, you can both admit and care for clinically complex residents safely and effectively because we’ll train and certify your community staff. Our comprehensive Infusion Therapy Program is critical to successful outcomes, and enables your staff to manage infusion residents with confidence. Infusion therapy nurse educators provide a range of courses, and we offer several ways to help avoid risk:

  • State-of-the-art stationary and ambulatory electronic infusion devices are provided as appropriate for each therapy
  • Our Nurses’ Infusion Therapy Procedure Manual for your community is a ready reference for staff
  • Infusion therapy skills validation tools enable your community administrators to confirm staff competencies
  • Hybrid eLearning Program for staff to learn at their own pace, on their own time
  • Infusion therapy physician order sheets and medication administration records promote accuracy and simplify complex infusion orders 

Regulatory Compliance

We know regulatory compliance is a key component to your success — and it’s one of the keys of our pharmacy consulting program too. Your consultant pharmacist will guide you through the ever-changing state and federal regulations to keep you compliant and will work to help address specific areas of concern by:

  • Improving the quality of care, safety and health of residents
  • Reviewing Quality Indicator/Quality Measure reports
  • Identifying medication issues and trends
  • Providing survey preparation and support
  • Developing and implementing plans of action
  • Enhancing staff capability through comprehensive clinical education programs
