2023 Together - P439 - The Strength of Silence: Standardizing a Pharmacy Practice Model - On Demand
Clinical pharmacists play an important role in adding value in the inpatient setting. However, most productivity metrics for pharmacist staffing models are based on drug distribution metrics. SSM Health aims to capture metrics for the clinical value of the pharmacist. Pharmacy leaders worked to standardize the pharmacy practice model, which included using a rule-based clinical monitoring dashboard within the electronic medical record (EMR). The group also standardized documentation to maximize workflow efficiency. The dashboard prioritizes patients based on specific clinical criteria and discretely captures pharmacist interventions via silent iVents. Lessons shared will include dashboard and process development and implementation.
