Pharmacy Consulting

Enhance resident care and streamline facility operations with long-term care pharmacy consulting services

Long-term care remains a heavily regulated industry. From federal, state and local codes required to maintain accreditation to eligibility requirements for Medicare and Medicaid payments, compliance is key to staying in business. That’s where MAC Rx pharmacy consulting services can help facility staff manage residents’ prescription needs.

Pharmaceutical use and management is a huge component of resident care and facility expense. In addition to helping clients save 13%-28% on generic prescription medications, MAC Rx consultant pharmacists can help develop strategies to reduce re-hospitalizations, monitor psychotropic medication use and manage antibiotic stewardship programs.

Streamline documentation to reduce record keeping errors

Pharmacist consultants are key resources to help improve documentation processes to reduce errors or omissions. Adverse drug effects and medication errors are among major factors for costly re-hospitalizations. MAC Rx consultant pharmacists can help your team complete chart reviews that are compliant with CMS regulations. Pharmacists can also conduct quarterly medication cart and medication room assessments in addition to your weekly or bi-weekly customer service representative check-ins.

Improve medication management with monthly drug regimen reviews

Periodic medication audits are vital to residents’ health and well-being in order to look for expired products, ensure they are taking the correct dosages and identify any potential drug interactions. These reviews also help to improve internal pharmacy processes. Monthly reports are sent to key management and provide statistics related to:

  • Gradual dose reduction (GDR) recommendations
  • Monthly drug regimen review (DRR) recommendations
  • Facility statistics relative to current state standards in Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin
  • Change of status requests
  • 24-hour complete chart reviews

Participate in quarterly meetings and assessments

Your pharmacy consultant will join your administrative team to participate in quarterly meetings to discuss issues such as GDR reporting, psychotropic drug usage, antibiotic stewardship and opioid use reporting.
