A Commitment To Care
As an ACHC and URAC accredited specialty pharmacy, we offer a Commitment to Care program which is designed to empower each patient to take an active role in managing his/her medications.
What Are The Benefits?
Kings Specialty Pharmacy’s Commitment to Care (CTC) program is designed to empower you to take an active role in managing your medications. Recommendations from our trained clinical pharmacists are based on appropriate pharmaceutical care and are supported by education and counseling, including the use of written educational material. The services are specific to your needs and rely upon pharmacists working collaboratively with you, your doctor, and other healthcare providers to ensure you are getting the best care possible. CTC services provide the following benefits as you gain a greater understanding of your condition and medication regimen:
- Medication error prevention
- Improved detection of adverse drug events
- Education and counseling designed to enhance your understanding of your condition and the appropriate use of your medications
- Assistance in helping you understand your co-pays and deductibles
- Finding financial assistance programs that may make your medications more affordable
Why Is Taking Your Medication Important?
It is important that you are following the recommended course of treatment by taking all of the prescribed medications for the entire length of time necessary. Not taking your medications as prescribed can lead to many complications, such as:
- Treatment failure
- Increased hospitalizations
- Worsening of your existing condition
- The development of a new condition
To avoid these complications, take your medications at the same time every day as prescribed by your doctor or healthcare provider.
f you are unsure what your medications are for or how to take your medications, contact the CTC Team at Kings Specialty Pharmacy. Taking an active role in understanding the use of your medication regimen will allow you to be more engaged in your care, resulting in a much better outcome.
