Josh Bryant, NTS Hospital Telepharmacist
"One of the most rewarding aspects of telepharmacy is the collaborative effort I have with the onsite staff as we work toward a common goal of putting the wellbeing and safety of our patients first.
The Telepharmacy model has allowed more hospitals to pursue increased patient safety initiatives, including CPOE and eMAR. These initiatives however, come with the need for pharmacist coverage outside of the traditional pharmacy hours. The expanded coverage needed for real-time order verification is the perfect niche for Northwest Telepharmacy Services to fill."
Sonia Wisebrod, Telepharmacist since 2009 with 15 years of hospital pharmacy experience
"North West Telepharmacy has given me the flexibility to continue doing what I love, which is practicing hospital pharmacy, while maintaining a work-life balance. I also get to experience a wide range of hospital practice settings across different provinces, which has been very unique and valuable to me. I feel privileged to be part of these health care teams and look forward to the onsite visits to be able to meet the people and places I interact with every day or week."
Fatima Vieira-Cabral, Director of Pharmacy/Manager of Chemo/IV Infusion Clinic, Woodstock General Hospital
With the introduction of computerized provider order entry, electronic medication administration records and closed loop medication administration in our region, the Pharmacy Directors knew we needed a strategy to address medication order verification around the clock – 24/7. We wanted a shared service since our region has many hospital pharmacies that were not open 7 days per week. Northwest Telepharmacy was a key partner in our solution. The Northwest Telepharmacy team took the time to understand our needs and offer solutions that were mindful of medication safety and our fiscal accountability.
North West Telepharmacy representatives continue to be responsive to our issues and work collaboratively with us. We meet quarterly to discuss efficiencies in workflow and standards of practice. We have established hand-off procedures to ensure communication carries over from one shift to the next. Northwest Telepharmacy continues to be a leader in remote pharmacy services.
