When a pharmacy is understaffed or during times of unexpected volume surges, direct patient care can suffer. Traditional staffing agencies provide backup support in the form of a temporary pharmacist who joins your team onsite for a day, a week, or more. This solution often requires a learning period, while your temp support staff member gets up to speed with your pharmacy’s procedures.
Comprehensive Pharmacy Services provides telepharmacy staffing augmentation that delivers seamless 24/7/365 service coverage. Remote order entry and verification provide accurate and prompt medication approval, leaving in-house staff pharmacists free to assist patients. After-hours drug approval times can be reduced to as little as 14 to 20 minutes, while decreasing the amount of medication errors that may occur during overnight or understaffed hoursl. Comprehensive Pharmacy Services’ telepharmacy functions are compliant with Joint Commission Standards, HIPAA regulations, and state licensing requirements.
