PHARMACY CONSULTING

Pharmacy Consulting Services

The Operations Solutions division of Progressive Healthcare Solutions offers services based on pharmacy consulting. Pharmacy operational consulting is really the core of how to improve the foundation of your pharmacy business. A brief example of the services offered by the Operations Solutions division is:

  • Pharmacy Workflow Analysis
  • Staffing Analysis
  • Pharmacy Automation Analysis
  • Retail/Long-Term Care Pharmacy
  • LTC Pharmacy Dispensing Options
  • Long-Term Care Facility Proposals

The Operations Solutions division utilizes the expertise of our consultants to perform a workflow analysis of your pharmacy. The analysis can center on problem areas that you have identified or would like to improve or our team can perform a complete workflow analysis beginning with the prescribing physician all the way through customer receipt. The purpose of the pharmacy workflow analysis is to identify strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement within your pharmacy in order to increase the efficiency of your operation.

Labor cost is the second largest expense item for pharmacy after the cost of drugs. As part of the workflow analysis, our pharmacy consulting services will evaluate your workload requirements and offer experienced advice on staffing ratios while maintaining and/or improving your pharmacy’s customer service level and enhancing the efficiency of the pharmacy operations. Our consultants will also evaluate the impact that the Affordable Care Act may have on increased cost to your operation and offer solutions to mitigate these added costs.

Introducing automation to your pharmacy is now becoming more of a necessity than a question. The Operations Solutions division can research your pharmacy’s day-to-day operations, make evaluations, and provide a report on whether or not automation makes sense for your pharmacy. For example, adding automated tablet counters, dispensing machines and possibly upgrading pharmacy software are areas where automation analysis is essential. Progressive Healthcare Solutions can offer you their result’s driven expertise on automating your pharmacy.

Many independent retail pharmacies are looking to diversify their client base by entering new markets and offering products and services that are unique. One of the diversification strategies is for independent pharmacies to service Long-Term Care (LTC) facilities. LTC facilities have very specialized needs and requirements in order to meet Federal and State regulations. Pharmacy plays an integral role in ensuring that LTC facilities are compliant with these regulations. Our pharmacy consulting experts will advise you on the rules and regulations of the LTC market, in areas such as short-cycle dispensing, IV Therapy, policy and procedures manuals, and other areas.

As a retail pharmacy, the opportunity to supply an LTC facility with their required medications is something that can generate revenue. Healthcare Business Consulting’s Operations Solutions division can expertly assist you in preparing a proposal for entry into one or more LTC facilities. This pharmacy consulting service is invaluable if you want to take your pharmacy in the direction of LTC while maintaining your retail client base.
