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.

Ambulatory pharmacy services
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.
Pharmacy technicians play a vital role in the preparation and dispensing of medications to patients at Parkview Health. As a valued member of the team, pharmacy technicians assist in many aspects of the medication use process in a variety of facilities from hospitals to retail locations.
Personal growth opportunities exist in specialty pharmacy technician roles that are available in the following areas:
- Automation Systems Procurement
- Medication Assistance
- Medication Reconciliation
