Choosing the Right Long-term Care Pharmacy Solutions for Your SNF

Long-term Care Pharmacy Solutions Should Look at Your Cost Breakdowns You’re focused on the bottom line. The big picture is important, but with all the costs that add up to your total pharmacy total, you also need to look at each component to optimize savings. Grane Rx can show you the PPD for meds both by payer and across the board. By getting costs based on payer, you have the data you need to make more informed decisions. With multiple providers ordering meds for each patient, you need some oversight too. Grane Rx provides the level of financial detail you need to understand where you can reduce spending.  

Great Long-term Care Pharmacy Solutions Provide Consulting Services

Before meds are ordered, someone needs to be looking at the meds the patient is taking. Are there too many? Are they the right ones? Are they too expensive? Are there better options? While a clinical specialist should monitor this constantly, too often a pharmacy consultant isn’t involved until there’s an issue with a medication, which can factor into readmissions. Grane Rx has pharmacy consultants who provide this service for your facilities, from the get go, to assist with earlier decision making support and interaction.  

Improved Long-term Care Pharmacy Solutions Save Nurses Time

If you can make med passes more efficient, you free up nurses to have more time for patient care. Long-term care pharmacy solutions like Grane Rx’s Simple-Packs do just that. Each patient’s medication is prepackaged based on the time of day the medication is administered — pre-breakfast, morning, mid-day and evening and a variety of other time options. This makes for neater, easier-to-access med carts and allows nurses to find each patient’s medication quickly. Not only do prepackaged medications make med passing more efficient, but they reduce errors and waste as well. All these factors add up to better outcomes and lower costs.
