...Cost effective drug therapy especially with Medicare Part D roles now...

...Patient Compliance...

...Reduce adverse drug reactions, drug interactions and toxicities

...Effective Dosing...

...Enhanced Public image...

Cost Effective Drug Therapy with enhanced quality of life...  The primary client or patient within these settings are geriatric or disabled patients. These patients face the problems of meeting more health care expenses than most other members of the general population and must do so on a very low fixed income in most cases. Maintaining cost effective high quality of life health care is of prime importance to these individuals and to your facility.

Patient Compliance...  many patients do not receive optimum benefit from drug regimens because of non-compliance or potentially inappropriately prescribed medications(PIMs) but rather suffer deleterious effects due to failing patient compliance.

Reduced Adverse Drug reactions, interactions and toxicities...

Adverse drug reactions and interactions are responsible for over 100,000 deaths annually and account for a significant percentage > 16% of hospitalizations. Drug toxicities cost consumers over $ 3 billion annually.

Effective Dosing...

most drug dosing was established empirically, using manufacturers' recommnedations as a  start. This is acceptable for most drugs, because generally, the toxic range is well above the therapeutic range, but it becomes more crucial in geriatric and disabled patients. If a drug has a narrow therapoeutic range which is close to its toxic range, empiric dosing can be dangerous through more subtle problems. Serum levels would be the obvious solution, but another problem presents itself. Serum drug levels are ordered at inappropriate times  and are often interpreted incorrectly. Levels may be drawn too close to a dose giving false highs or drawn too close to steady state giving false lows. This results in an inaccurate analysis and inappropriate drug therapy.

Enhanced Public Image...

 ...the need of the patient to find quality healthcare with meaningful qulaity of life allows you to become the facility of choice.
