Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
PharmaPoint is proud to welcome Jacksonville Medical Care as the newest clinic to open and operate a point-of-care pharmacy. Located in Jacksonville, Arkansas, the clinic offers 12 family practice physicians, with more than 300 years of combined experience.
“After doing our due diligence to determine the right pharmacy model and provider, we are excited to partner with PharmaPoint,” said Drew Jackson, Practice Administrator for Jacksonville Medical Care. “As the landscape of healthcare is continually evolving, we understand the importance of expanding our ancillary services in order to provide our patients with the very best in clinical care.”
Jacksonville Medical Care is part of Arkansas’s largest independent family practice group, Arkansas Central Primary Care, and has been providing healthcare services to the Jacksonville community and surrounding areas for more than 13 years. They currently see approximately 4,000 patients per month.
“Giving our patients the option to have their prescriptions filled onsite and complete the continuum of care will be of great benefit,” said Dr. Harold Short, one of the physicians on staff at Jacksonville Medical Care. “An onsite pharmacist will be a key clinical provider to our patients, with the ability to develop strong relationships and facilitate understanding of medication therapy - including any potential symptoms or interactions. The pharmacist will also help to ensure that patients adhere to the medication therapy prescribed.”
PharmaPoint will assist Jacksonville Medical Care in the design and layout of the onsite pharmacy, as well as guide them through the required licensing processes. The partnership will also result in PharmaPoint’s management of payer contracting, staffing requirements and the daily operation of the pharmacy.
“We are proud to have Jacksonville Medical Care as the first clinic to open a PharmaPoint-managed pharmacy in the state of Arkansas,” says Paul Albano, P.D., Senior Vice President of Pharmacy Operations for PharmaPoint. “We are confident that their patients will love the convenience of an onsite pharmacy, as well as the personalized service and relationship – one that has greatly declined in an era of big box stores and chains - that comes as a result. We expect Jacksonville Medical Care to be the first of many in the state of Arkansas.”
