Home Towne Rx cares about the community in which we operate. We are always striving for the betterment of our community. We partner with an ever increasing number of community organizations.
The idea of collocating pharmacy services within community based organizations is one that ultimately benefits the patient or in the case of community based organizations, its members. One of the clear clinical benefits is the ability to track adherence to prescribed medications. By an exchange of information between community based organizations and the pharmacy, a mechanism can be created for a real-time tracking of prescription fills, which can be used as a proxy for medication adherence. This effort is a true and real example of how a team of medical professionals covering different disciplines can collaborate in the care management of those we serve.
FLU IMMUNIZATION CLINICS FOR CITY OF TRENTON RESIDENTS
HomeTowne RX entered into a partnership with the City of Trenton’s Department of Health and Human Services and conducted over 10 flu clinics throughout the city to provide flu vaccines to the most vulnerable populations in Trenton. This public/private partnership allowed vulnerable and frail residents in high rises, home-bounded and otherwise unable to access a pharmacy, clinic or physician’s office to get vaccinated against the flu.
In addition to expanding the flu vaccination services to the most vulnerable individuals in our community, this partnership directly benefited the Department of Health and Human Services. The department’s limited resources and staff were able to continue to work in other areas of public health critical for the well being of the community like the pediatric flu clinics and prevention of communicable diseases while the flu clinics for adults were run by the HomeTowne Rx staff.
This partnership’s resulted in a win-win situation for both partners as the City was able to provide flu vaccination to the most vulnerable residents throughout the City as well as City’s staff and other partners who requested the flu clinic. The City was able to save money and resources while ensuring access to preventive medicine to its residents.
