Remote Pharmaceutical Care
A new program developed by Nebraska Medicine will enhance health care in some of the area's smallest hospitals. The Remote Pharmaceutical Care program connects rural hospitals with experienced pharmacists who have chosen to leave the workforce or are looking to work additional hours from home.
Pharmacy Robot and Bar Coding
The newest employee in the newly remodeled inpatient pharmacy at Nebraska Medicine is drawing a lot of attention. It s the Swisslog PillPick system, an automated drug management unit, designed to package, store and dispense medications in bar coded, unit-dose form. This new pharmacy robot ensures greater patient safety, reducing medication errors and increasing productivity giving pharmacists more time to spend consulting with physicians and nurses about patient care and medication safety.
Pharmacy Residency Program
Nebraska Medicine has one of the most established pharmacy residency programs in the country. A pharmacy residency at the med center offers individuals a variety of experiences and the freedom to explore many roles in the pharmacy practice. Specialized residencies are also available in Oncology, Critical Care, Cardiology, Drug Information, and fellowships in Critical Care and Infectious Disease.
