For our hospital clients, we've been able to deliver more than traditional pharmacy services and we continue to develop new models in patient care

Consider some of these best practices:

  • Customized inventory to meet the needs of unique patient populations, ranging from injectables, HIV/AIDS medications and pediatric formulations to oncology agents and limited-distribution drugs
  • Delivery of medications directly to patient hospital rooms, accompanied by bedside consolution, which may help manage side effects, improve adherence and reduce avoidable readmissions
  • Use of clinical liaisons to arrange for Walgreens home infusion and respiratory services, including related patient/caregiver training and insurance coordination
  • Medication reconciliation for those patients who fill their prescriptions at Walgreens, helping to avoid medication errors, such as omissions, duplications, dosing errors or drug interactions
  • Prescription refills - all our pharmacies are connected, helping patients get their refills at any Walgreens nationwide
  • Customized medication and administrative services for indigent patients, including 340B charity care and Medicaid pending programs
  • Integrated pharmacy benefit management services for employees, supported by a pharmacy staff focused on our clients' goals
