Parkview Pharmacy Department
The Parkview Pharmacy Department strives to provide the highest quality, talented and compassionate pharmaceutical care through a philosophy of evidence-based best practices. In Allen County we employ more than 130 pharmacists, including a director of corporate pharmacy, an Allen County director of pharmacy, four pharmacy managers, six pharmacy supervisors, 16 acute care clinical specialists, 35 acute care clinical generalists, 14 ambulatory clinical specialists, ambulatory and inpatient medication safety pharmacists, an informatics pharmacist and a pharmacy clinical coordinator.
The Parkview Pharmacy Department utilizes an integrative inpatient practice model, where pharmacists have responsibilities for both distributive and clinical functions. Parkview has 20 clinical pharmacists that round on 21 multidisciplinary health care teams Monday through Friday. There are 13 of these teams that round seven days per week. Clinical services include collaborative rounding on various teams, inpatient pharmacokinetic dosing, nutrition support, targeted drug therapy monitoring, cardiac arrest team participation, anticoagulation dosing, culture and susceptibility monitoring, antibiotic dosing, patient-controlled analgesic dosing, medication discharge consultations and more.
We are an early adopter of best-practices for integrated technologies, including Epic©, Pyxis® MedStations™, Pyxis® CII Safe™, Talyst’s Autopack® and Autopharm® inventory management software with vertical carousels, Smart Infusion systems, and Baxa EM 2400™ TPN compounder. Ambulatory anticoagulation management has been a pharmacist-driven service at Parkview Health since 1995. Recently, ambulatory pharmacy services have undergone rapid growth. Pharmacists practice in a variety of ambulatory settings, including primary care and cardiology, with collaborative practice agreements for a number of disease states. Pharmacists are also key members of other multidisciplinary clinics, such as oncology, fall prevention clinic, post-discharge clinic, and comprehensive care clinic. Additionally, Manchester University College of Pharmacy has four faculty members who call Parkview their main practice site. The pharmacy team is actively involved in providing experiential training for Doctor of Pharmacy students from Purdue University, Butler University, Ohio Northern University, University of Toledo, Manchester University and many academic institutions.
