San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 15, 2011
Pipeline Healthcare (http://www.pipelinehealthcare.com) is pleased to announce that it is licensed to offer its world-class telepharmacy and medication remote order entry services to hospitals and healthcare centers in California. Ideally located to service the California healthcare market, Pipeline’s corporate headquarters are based in downtown San Francisco.
“We are delighted to now offer our unique brand of telepharmacy here in our home state,” said Brian Roberts, CEO of Pipeline Healthcare. “The reception we’ve already received and the strong demand for this service here in California has been significant and only validates our decision to make San Francisco our home base. We offer a competitively priced, high-quality service with unique options to meet the growing needs of the marketplace.”
Telepharmacy and Medication Remote Order Entry (ROE) have become widely accepted as integral to a more cost effective and efficient healthcare delivery model. ROE is the outsourced clinical review of hospital medication orders by licensed hospital pharmacists. Medication orders are electronically transmitted to Pipeline Healthcare pharmacists for individual review, approval, and entry. These licensed clinical pharmacists discuss options on the phone with the hospital staff taking care of the patient; the approved orders are remotely entered into the hospital’s pharmacy information system and ultimately dispensed by the hospital. Proving to be safer, more efficient and more cost-effective, numerous studies have shown that Telepharmacy and ROE not only reduce costs, they also improve medication safety and the quality of care. A similar model of success was forged by Teleradiology, now a standard component of most hospital and healthcare protocols.
Pipeline’s unique service is the first to offer client-dedicated pharmacist teams that are employed by Pipeline Healthcare (rather than independent contractors). Therefore Pipeline pharmacists develop trusted relationships with hospital nursing and medical staff, and a deep seamless knowledge of their specific clients. Pipeline also boasts a previously unavailable, proprietary Technology Platform, robustly designed to increase productivity while providing operational and clinical insight for clients.
Launched in 2009, Pipeline Healthcare built its business providing innovative services to hospitals and healthcare networks across the East Coast, Midwest, and Northwest. On the strength of that success and with corporate headquarters established in San Francisco, Pipeline turns its eye toward the California healthcare market.
