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.
