Medication Safety Expertise for Pharmacies, Patients, Patient Advocacy Groups, Clinical Research, and
 Patient Safety Organizations

Community pharmacy

Community pharmacies are a diverse group of entrepreneurs that are the most common healthcare touch-point for patients. We understand that diversity and will work with you to assure your quality assurance program is effective and compliant. 

Clinical Research Organizations

Meeting client and service goals in clinical research requires that you select the best sites from a diverse group of potential sites.  We will help you assure potential sites can comply with regulatory and safety requirements for investigational products before you invest your resources at that location.

Retail Pharmacy

Corporate pharmacies are integral parts of the nation's healthcare system that improve patient access to vital medications.  Our clients benefit from customized software and consulting services:  lowering costs and improving outcomes.

institutional review boards (irb)

IRB approval is one of the last safety checks before research studies can begin in humans.  We will help Executive Directors and IRB Chairs assure that safe medication practices are an integral part of the review process, and assure effective analysis of deviation reports and unanticipated problem reports.

patients and patient advocates

Patients and Patient Advocacy Groups are increasing taking responsibility for their own safety and seeking information held by the government.  We can help you submit Freedom of Information requests to federal and state agencies that regulate drugs and devices to uncover this pubic information.  We submit customized searches of the FDAs Adverse Event Reporting database - with the goal of accessing difficult to find safety data, including side effects, adverse events, product defects, and drug interaction reports.

Health-system Pharmacy

We  help solve the vexing problems that bog down the efficiency and effectiveness of safety teams.  We consult with Executives, Department Heads, and Safety Officers to assure your strategic medication safety plan is effective, actionable and achieving results.

Patient safety organizations

Patient safety organizations (PSOs) are effective partners with providers in improving quality and safety in healthcare.  We help Executive Directors and Patient Safety Experts expanding their mission to include medication safety and re-engineer your current medication safety services, data analysis, or software. 

Perhaps the most important distinguishing characteristic of high-reliability organisations is a collective preoccupation with the possibility of failure
