“Our service goes beyond simply filling prescriptions. We review each patient’s list of medications and work with the providers to set up an effective medication-related plan for the best outcomes.” Tolson-Eveans explained that the typical pharmacy client uses about five medications. “Uninsured patients may lack a consistent primary care provider who knows all a patient’s current prescriptions. Pharmacists can be a point of coordination to prevent harmful medication interactions or redundancies.” The pharmacy offers basic health monitoring: blood pressure measurements, weight, and asthma control; and lifestyle counseling for tobacco cessation and healthy food choices.
