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.
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.
