Last week the FDA, acting on the recommendation from the CDC’s Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP), gave its approval to GSK to market Shingrix® to prevent shingles. The new guidance is based on a vaccine initially developed at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, now the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. Widespread risk More than 99% of those older than 50 years are infected with Varicella Zoster Virus, and one in three Americans will develop shingles in their lifetime. The new recommendations apply to adults over the age of 50 including those previously received Zostavax®. "The...

Refill Reminders Produce Results

The pharmacy results are in, and we like what we see. We've known that reminding patients about upcoming refills on the maintenance meds improves awareness about missed days of therapy and ultimately improves adherence. But what effect does it actually have on PDC? Well, the results are in. We've analyzed dispensing data from 254 pharmacies over a 7 month period: Refill reminder calls resulted in PDC improvements of over 2%  for each of the 3 adherence measures. To put that into perspective, not only did these pharmacies change the trajectory of adherence scores by mitigating lost days of therapy, but the percentage of adherent patients continues it's upward...

Ready for More: Centralized Contact Center a Must for Pharmacies

Although many retail businesses commonly measure productivity in terms of sales per labor-hour, pharmacies often use Rx per labor-hour as a productivity standard metric. This task-oriented measure is used for budgeting purposes as well as in their near-term forecasting models to allocate labor on a fiscal operating basis. While this methodology is largely based on historical benchmarks and has value, it may not take into consideration each location’s physical plant, relative volume, staff proficiency and workflow nuances. Time study analyses are often used to evaluate the impact on workflow efficiency with the introduction of new technology. Introducing new technology that impacts the...
