The healthcare crisis…

March 11, 2008

Pharmacists are a big part of the solution

Pharmacists
 
With healthcare costs spinning out of control and impacting individuals, employers and ultimately our government, the role of the pharmacist has never been more important.
 
Following are just a few of many ways pharmacists will make a difference:

  • Informing patients about generic options
  • Being a watchdog against expensive and dangerous prescribing errors (interactions, therapeutic duplication, adverse effects, etc)
  • Counseling patients and improving compliance
  • Serving as an informed resource to educate patients about proper medication use
  • Assistance with Medicare drug plan selection, enrollment, and billing issues

We’re proud to be working with a group of professional individuals who are so dedicated to patient care and making an impact on issues that affect all of us.
