The Advantage of Clinical Services
Patients at the Center of Care
Long-term care, institutional, and closed-door pharmacies across the U.S. are looking for new opportunities to expand revenue for their businesses. With reimbursement rates decreasing, increasing competition, and other industry pressures, it is difﬁcult to grow revenue by purely dispensing prescriptions.
In times like this, it is important to put your patients at the center of care – and one solution to consider may be offering clinical programs and services.
Take a look at how your pharmacy can improve the health of your patients and expand revenue.
Improve Patient Care
With the pharmacist’s role evolving and provider status continually expanding, patients are looking at the clinical pharmacist as an integral part of their healthcare team.
Long-term care facilities, assisted living communities, and adult family group homes have a unique set of needs and can be considered high risk for medication complications.
For example, pharmacists can oversee immunization programs for entire communities, which is essential to keep residents safe in a communal-living situation. Work with assisted living and group home leadership and staff to keep residents on an appropriate immunization schedule.
Capture More Revenue
A clinical pharmacist who provides services to an assisted living or group home setting can improve patients’ quality of life and also help to maintain the health of the community as a whole. Get to know assisted living staff and residents, in order to understand their clinical care needs.
Whether your patients pay through insurance or out of pocket, clinical services will help you capture more revenue. Bill for items covered under the medical beneﬁt and optimize reimbursement for the immunizations and clinical services you provide to patients.
