  • Overview

    Central prescription and order verification, at its core, is a concept whereby the various aspects of pharmacy practice can be divided up into a series of assignments to be completed by separate pharmacy workers. It allows data entry for a patient to occur in one location, just as that patient's drug utilization review is finished in a separate location. This gives the pharmacist an opportunity to spend more time with that patient, while the nuances of data processing are completed independently. Dan Luce, corporate manager of pharmacy affairs for the Walgreen Company, gives a few examples of circumstances in which this process might serve as a means to provide additional support to pharmacy practitioners at a single location. As proponents of central processing aim to expand the reach of these programs, what are the key obstacles to expansion? How have patients responded to this concept? Dr. Charles Turck hosts.
