Did you know Janus Rx is a full service pharmacy provider now featuring remote order entry? That’s right, you now have access to Janus Pharmacy 24 hours a day 365 days per year. This means complete, total and unfettered access to the pharmacy services you need when you need them.
An Answer for Continuum of Care Demands
After all, let’s be honest, patient care does not stop when Janus is closed for the day. In fact, sometimes when the pharmacy is closed is when you actually need your pharmacy the most.
Our new service gives you total access to pharmacy services on nights, weekends and holidays. There are a few moving parts, but the process is streamlined and efficient Let’s review the ROE (Remote Order Entry) process and what it means for you.
The ROE Process
First, remote order entry ensures consistent pharmacy services during hours when hospital pharmacy staff are not at the facility. Orders are processed off site by a pharmacist at our Virginia Beach call center.
Host system integration ensures order entry, approval and processing are fluid and efficient. In addition, any order approval attached to a computerized physician order entry or eMAR system will automatically update.
This allows patient continuum of care to happen in real time. No more waiting for approvals or eMAR updates the next day. Get your questions answered when you need them. Our full service remote order entry system ensures there will never be a gap in patient continuum of care.
Full Back-Up Pharmacy Service
Also, there are measures in place should a patient be prescribed a medication that Janus does not have on hand. Janus pharmacy utilizes a back up pharmacy service to make sure you get medicine for your patient when you need it. Of course, once a back up order is placed, we make inventory adjustments accordingly to keep new medication in stock.
Benefits of ROE for Hospitals
Finally, there is a huge benefit to hospital staff when it comes to using our Remote Order Entry Pharmacy. This is one of those metrics that often gets overlooked when discussing this type of pharmacy service. The bottom line is your hospital receives pharmacy services at a fraction of the cost you would normally spend for on-site staffing. Typically, our remote order entry pharmacy means you pay 80 to 90% less than the cost of an average pharmacist hourly rate.
That’s great news for your hospital budget. We are excited to offer this new service and look forward to serving you. As always, should you have any questions about ROE services or need clarification for something entirely different, don’t hesitate to reach out. We would love to answer any questions you may have. Together, we will make an impact on patient continuum of care.
