While VMC Department of Pharmacy has enjoyed a progressive and comprehensive pharmacy presence for many years, we too were moved by the call from ASHP and other industry leaders to prepare for the future. In 2011, a focus group was formed to address the urgent need to proactively plan for changes in healthcare reform. Following a thorough evaluation of our current practices and systems we began the process of designing a new practice model that would support PPMI Summit consensus recommendations and meet the needs of our patients. Final plans are underway for a multiphase expansion and redefinition of pharmacy services. The new, world-class practice model expands on our existing framework of robust clinical services and provides for both decentralized unit-based and service-based clinical pharmacy services via a system of seven integrated teams. These teams, comprised of both pharmacists and technicians, are supported by a dynamic central pharmacy team responsible for production of sterile products, inpatient chemotherapy, cart fills, inventory and automation. Most drug distribution is automated, using Robot-RX, medical carousels and unit-based automated dispensing cabinets.
Vidant Medical Center is looking for a Transitional Care Pharmacist to become a part of our Pharmacy team.
