Overview of Services

As well as delivering a range of pharmacy service models, this division is an innovative contributor to both the needs of our clients and their patients. This includes:

  1. The development of discharge support systems that extend across the continuum of care, assist patients and provide important information between treating and referring practitioners, hospital staff and the hospital pharmacy teams
  2. Managing a patient’s pharmacy needs through Government initiatives such as Quality Use of Medicines (QUM), which reduce the risk of medication misadventure and readmission to hospital
  3. A focus on cost management of pharmaceuticals in the hospital sector, including improving cost management on a DRG basis and achieving best value through maximised use of the PBS
  4. Active participation in ACHS Accreditation at all the hospital sites where services are provided
