Remote pharmacy services have generally been overlooked by large hospitals and health systems, which until recently maintained highly efficient pharmacy departments of their own. However, as hospital pharmacy staff are increasingly being pulled away from the pharmacy to assist and lead in system-wide clinical and strategic initiatives, and as reimbursements and patient satisfaction surface as top priorities, hospitals of all sizes are beginning to realize the value of supplementing their pharmacies with remote clinical personnel.

everseat logoTitle: How Accessible is Your Health System? Identifying and Solving Patient Access Problems

Source: Everseat

To meet the needs of a patient base that’s growing in size and complexity, health systems must become more accessible. Long waits to access care endanger patient well-being and damage health systems’ reputations and finances.

Yet most continue to operate under scheduling protocols created during an earlier era, designed for the benefit of providers rather than patients.

This white paper describes the challenges of creating a more accessible health system, and explores the latest solutions. Learn how to move your own health system toward greater accessibility with emerging technology and improved protocols.
