Quality of Care

EPIC Pharmacy provides only the highest Quailty of Care

Quality of Care

Drug Utilization Review (DUR)

  • Before filling any prescription, an EPIC pharmacist reviews the patient profile to ensure there are no drug interactions or allergies. After cross-checking current medications and allergies under each patient profile with the newest recommended prescription within our DUR computer database, the DUR will alert our pharmacist if contradictions exist or if dosage is abnormally high.

4-Point Quality Check

  • Pharmacy technician enters prescription data into system.
  • Pharmacist reviews prescription.
  • Pharmacy technician fills prescription and verifies type of medication and quantity.
  • Pharmacist reviews prescription for a final check.

Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP)

  • EPIC tracks narcotics daily through the Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) providing a more effective means of combating drug diversion and drug abuse nationwide.

Opioid Monitoring

  • Every EPIC pharmacist works closely with physicians to monitor the use and abuse of opioids. We work tirelessly with physicians on tapering and other programs to balance medication needs.
  • EPIC also provides daily reporting to all state PMPs and adheres to the Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS) program.
