Pharmacy

Pharmacy contains data required to conduct pharmacy activities and to manage the medication regimen of veterans and dependent beneficiaries. The data includes outpatient and inpatient patient medication order, fill/refill, dispensing information and history. The data is used by healthcare providers and pharmacists in the evaluation of treatment plans and patient education. In addition, this domain contains data related to non-VA medications. Non-VA data describes those medications, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, and herbal preparations that are being taken by the patient and are supplied from a source other than a VA Pharmacy. The data also includes drug procurement, purchase, distribution and inventory management information. Pharmacy data is also used to detect discrepancies in stock levels and conduct controlled substance inspections. Utilization, cost, and workload reports based on the data in this domain are used by local VAMC's, VISNs, the Pharmacy Benefits Management Strategic Health Group and the VA Research Community to provide management cost-controlling tools, such as Drug Formulary, while maintaining the highest level of patient care.
