Announcing Genoa Pharmacy Service at Liberty Resources
April 6, 2018
Liberty Resources will partner with Genoa Healthcare to provide full service onsite pharmacy services as another important step in furthering our integrated health care. This complementary service will advance our integrated care strategic initiative. Liberty Resources Integrated Health Care provides mental health care as well as primary care and other wellness services. Genoa’s pharmacists will be part of the treatment team allowing Liberty Resources to provide a higher level of service to clients.
Studies show that centralizing clinical and pharmaceutical care for behavioral health conditions results in higher rates of medication adherence, which helps people live productive lives and reduces healthcare spending.
Having an onsite pharmacy will give Liberty Resources Integrated Health Care clients the option to fill all their medications prescribed by our medical staff as well as primary care and other outside prescribers, in the privacy and convenience of the onsite pharmacy. Genoa Healthcare also provides a system to organize medications by day and time in customized bubble packs to help patients and their caregivers keep track of the medication regimen.
The pharmacy staff will work with Liberty Resources prescribers to help track medication adherence – how often and whether consumers are filling prescriptions.
As the fifth largest drug chain with over 400 full-service pharmacies located within community mental health centers across the U.S., Genoa is one of only a few pharmacy service organizations that specialize in working with behavioral health providers. As a result, their pharmacists are experts at working with issues related to mental health, such as difficulties in getting prior authorizations and the need to address other issues that challenge optimal medication adherence.
Construction has begun to convert unused office space at 1045 James Street into the new pharmacy. The pharmacy is set to open in May 2018.
