A Healthy Life
Wausau Family Pharmacy focus’ on the gap that other pharmacies in the area cannot provide for their patients due to time, resources and or other reasons. As a pharmacy manager for more than 10 years in large chain pharmacies located in Central Wisconsin, I have identified opportunities in our community that larger pharmacies simply cannot address. The city of Wausau composes of greater than 9,000 Southeast Asian Residents-the highest capita per Southeast Asian population in the state of Wisconsin. This presents the greatest opportunity in Wisconsin to provide for this group-- where culture and language barriers are issues. Furthermore, the pandemic has caused many local pharmacies to reduce in hours, staff and or even close; as a result, our communities’ health is at stake. Wausau Family Pharmacy focus’ on closing these gaps by focusing on the highest risk patients in our community through personalized medication therapy management (MTM).
MTM services focus’ on an individual patient’s medication regimen. We provide comprehensive medication reviews (CMR) for high-risk patients in order to identify health gaps. We work in conjunction with their providers to resolve these gaps. Examples of gap intervention includes transitioning in a more cost-effective medication, appropriate dose adjustments, patient medication education, recommending adding or discontinuing medications by disease state guidelines. In conclusion, we work for the community, in conjunction with their medical team, to help fill the health care gaps in order to improve the quality of life for our patients.
