(PRWEB) May 14, 2015
Widely recognized as the founder, and industry’s leading provider of comprehensive hospice mail order pharmacy as well local PBM services, Enclara Pharmacia announces the expansion of their comprehensive Inpatient Unit (IPU) Solutions to include support for both Pyxis and Omnicell ADS systems.
Enclara Pharmacia recognizes that IPUs present a unique challenge for hospices to balance medication access, regulatory guidance, and security with cost. For over a decade, Enclara Pharmacia has provided the most versatile and comprehensive pharmacy solutions for servicing IPUs ranging from PBM medication access / adjudication, to integrated automated dispensing systems supporting general inpatients and residential hospice patients.
Enclara Pharmacia offers a wide variety of tools and resources to support state regulatory assessment / requirements, utilization management, and medication dispensing systems. Their services are supported by a full array of reporting options that includes 8358 billing requirements. Hospices may choose to receive stock supplies and patient specific medication through mail order fulfillment, when compliant with state regulations, or they can facilitate local pharmacy access support, as needed. Billing options include per diem pricing, when predictable cost is desired, or “pass through pricing”, when local pharmacies are utilized. Their vast database allows benchmarking of similar IPU’s and utilization trending to maximize standards of practice amongst patients serviced.
“As the industry leader serving over 120 IPUs across the nation, we understand the complexities hospices encounter with IPU medication management. We are excited to provide our hospice partners with multiple IPU solutions that improve staff efficiencies, data sharing capabilities, and improved patient care,” stated Doug Espersen, Director of IPU Services.
