TelepharmacyWest

TelepharmacyWest was established by a grant from Pacificare/UnitedHealthcare to help rural hospitals create sustainable pharmacy improvements.

Our seamless telepharmacy service works closely with small and rural healthcare institutions to provide compliant, cost-effective and efficient pharmacy services.

TelepharmacyWest, is the only nonprofit telepharmacy service located on the campus of a hospital and backed by a team of pharmacists who are always available. Our telepharmacists are trained and work in an accredited, Six Sigma pharmacy environment under the supervision of a clinical pharmacy director and a program director. We offer a standardized response time for medication review and order entry with back up staff immediately available if necessary — 24/7/365, we are here for you.

TelepharmacyWest provides a monthly intervention report that provides details about activities on your orders by our telepharmacists enabling you to maximize the safety and efficacy of drug therapy. We also archive all orders for a minimum of three years as mandated by the Board of Pharmacy. Our service is secure and HIPAA-compliant. Our service also can provide guidance on formulary management and inventory control helping to improve cost savings in your pharmacy.
