The expanding role of hospital pharmacies


Todd Sloane, writing in Hospitals & Health Systems, discusses   the expanding  role of hospital pharmacies.

“In-house {of hospitals}, these facilities can generate thousands in additional revenue, improve outcomes post-discharge in reducing readmissions and reduce hospital employee benefit drug costs. In the community, they provide the pharmacist with the opportunity to perform some healthcare functions such as immunizations, smoking cessation and chronic disease state management, and do so while capturing [prescription] volume that would have gone to other pharmacy retailers.”
