Staff Pharmacist/Compliance Officer:
Staff Pharmacist: I filled prescriptions at this outpatient pharmacy inside White Memorial Medical center, averaging 3000+ scripts per week. I had contact with physicians and other health professionals. I constantly made recommendation regarding DURs and drug therapies.
Compliance Officer: I was assigned the role of Compliance Officer by the PIC to oversee and ensure quality assurance procedures are being implemented. Also I was to oversee that the proper procedures and steps of Medicare supplies billings are being carried out correctly. For the 12 months that I worked here, the PIC, the supervisors, and the owners of the pharmacy had informed me that the workflow improved dramatically because of me. For example, for the same number of scripts as before (or more), the wait time had decreased tremendously and there were hardly any customer complaints.
Pharmacist-In-Charge: Head pharmacist in charge of day-to-day operation of the pharmacy.
-Ever since I took over the PIC position, the prescription volume has almost doubled in prescription volume, from average of 100 to almost 200 per day, while cutting the staff from 2 technicians to just 1 technician.
-I single-handedly set up new accounts for 5 Boarding Homes. This entailed writing up new contracts, setting up computer software, and training for myself and my staff.
-I am a certified MTM pharmacist. I started MTM (Medication Therapy Management) and CMR (Comprehensive Medication Review) programs as soon as I took over the PIC position. The two programs I have been actively participating are Mirixa and Outcomes MTM. Through these programs, I have improved medication compliance for our patients and improved our pharmacy EQUIPP scores. Currently all the measures that impact our STAR rating are at 95 percentile. I enjoy participating in these programs because they are not only beneficial to the patients' overall health but the higher score also improves reimbursement rate for the pharmacy.

-In addition to managing day-to-day operation of the pharmacy, I am also familiar with audits from PBMs and Board of Pharmacy.
