Focusing on Patient Outcomes, Not Just Prescriptions

We often equate regulatory mandates to government overreaching that impose roadblocks, which prevent pharmacists from providing solid healthcare to patients. However, changes and goals stemming from the Affordable Care Act (ACA) could actually give community pharmacies a new competitive advantage.


QS/1 Participants in Innovative Pharmacy Pilot Program

QS/1 is proud to be a participant in a pilot healthcare initiative that will enhance the role pharmacists play in providing integrated clinical services for patients. The collaboration is being facilitated by Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC) to bring together health information technology and pharmacy management providers.


Protect Your Patients, Protect Your Pharmacy

From drug and patient safety to cyber safety and personal safety – pharmacies must always be on top of their game. The healthcare industry is always evolving, from drug scheduling to processing credit card transactions. An article in Pharmacy Times explained it best, “Pharmacists are like the umpires of the health care game. They enter, verify, and triple check prescriptions, orders, and final products until they are satisfied.”


QS/1 Partners with KPhA to Provide Pharmacy Services in Emergencies

Earlier this year, QS/1 partners, the Kentucky Department for Public Health (KDPH) and the Kentucky Pharmacists Association (KPhA), participated in a showcase to display the region’s overall capabilities to respond to a natural disaster or emergency and demonstrate services the state could provide, including fire, police, pharmacy and other disaster-response resources.


Tis the Season

Flu season is here, meaning it is a great time to evaluate your status as an immunization provider. Since pharmacists are the most accessible healthcare professionals, we are valued members in our communities. Expanded scope and authority have provided pharmacists the ability to impact the availability and utilization of vaccines to a patient base that may not have otherwise been immunized.


QS/1 is First Pharmacy Software Provider to Partner with Appriss

Spartanburg, SC – January 4, 2017) As more states require stringent reporting of the dispensing of controlled substances, QS/1 is excited to be the first pharmacy management software provider to partner with Appriss Health and integrate NARxCHECK into pharmacy workflow. The Appriss PMP Gateway® provides real-time access to data collected by prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs). If a premium membership with Appriss is held, NARxCHECK, an analytics tool, provides insight into a patient’s controlled substance use with risk scores. All information displays without interrupting workflow.


A Prescription for Stress

When you made the decision to become a pharmacist, you knew you were entering a profession that was honorable, respected and would bring you great rewards when helping people in your community. But most jobs with high-reward payouts tend to bring a level of stress also. As more demands are placed on pharmacists, and the pharmacy staff, work hours tend to be nonstop. It’s rare to take a break to catch your breath and ensure you are not only filling prescriptions correctly but also keeping up with the many regulatory demands that cannot be overlooked.
