In the midst of our “new normal”, many of those we serve continue to face extraordinary health, financial, and social challenges as a consequence of the global pandemic. As these challenges become more prevalent, accessible, and personalized patient solutions become critical to the well-being of our communities.
As the source of primary care for many, community pharmacists continue to provide critical services for patients in need. From medication dispensing to COVID-19 specimen collection, pharmacists across the nation have stepped up to serve their communities as providers of accessible care.
Though challenges persist, the opportunity remains – and if you are ready to answer the call for better community health, PrescribeWellness is here to help.
To enhance the care that you currently provide, PrescribeWellness has made available resources from 211.org, the most comprehensive source of locally curated social services information in the U.S. Integrated into the PrescribeWellness workflow, pharmacists can now leverage embedded community resources to connect patients with critical services and resources such as:
- Food and nutrition programs
- Shelter and housing options
- Employment and education opportunities
- Services for veterans
- Healthcare, vaccination, and health epidemic information
- Addiction prevention and rehabilitation programs
- Support groups for mental illness and special needs
- Confidential solutions for physical, emotional, and domestic abuse
- And so much more
Obtaining insight into a patient’s unique social determinants of health (SDOH) can help pharmacists make better, more informed decisions for optimized care. In addition to the integration of 211.org, PrescribeWellness also offers the ability to track SDOH within its eCare solution. Community pharmacists can now document and address SDOH, directly within the Patient Engagement Center, for more holistic care, in a time when it is needed most.PrescribeWellness remains dedicated to providing community pharmacists opportunities to meet their patients where they are. Through integrated community resources and SDOH insight, pharmacists can take action to provide enhanced care to the communities they serve.
