In Alliance for Good Compliance
Working Together to Keep Patients on a Healthy Track
Let’s face it; taking care of ourselves isn’t always the easiest task. For many patients, medication compliance is a challenge. Maybe an unfortunate patient is suffering from painful side effects from a medication and chooses not to take it. Some have difficulties just getting to the pharmacy or calling for prescription refills, resulting in an inconsistent medication regimen. At Lakeview Pharmacy, it is our mission to find this gap in therapy and provide each patient with a personalized medication therapy management plan to treat their specific needs.
Our Medication Therapy Management, also known as CMR (Comprehensive Medication Review) is an opportunity for us to sit down with our patients for about 30-45 minutes to discuss in detail their medication regimen. By carefully reviewing all the medications a patient takes, including over-the-counter and herbal supplements, we are able to avoid possible drug interactions, manage side effects, treat health conditions based on current medical guidelines, update their medicine list and most importantly, help each patient learn to take their medications appropriately and regularly. This is a time where patients can ask questions and explain their concerns. Together, we will share with their doctor a plan that will help keep the patient on a healthy track.
We don’t need supernatural powers to keep our patients healthy. We need observant eyes, attentive ears and a proactive approach. As one of Racine’s last independent pharmacies, Lakeview Pharmacy keeps a careful watch over each patient to ensure the best possible care. We listen. We pay attention. We catch what others miss.
