2011 Report Now Available
ASCP, with support from QS/1, has embarked on an annual survey to determine industry standards for long-term care pharmacy operations, consultant pharmacist practice, and health information technology use in the long-term care setting. This data is helpful for pharmacists, manufacturers, technology vendors, and other stakeholders involved or interested in providing pharmacy services to the long-term care industry.
The 2011 report presents data collected in the annual ASCP and QS/1 business benchmarking survey. Examples of data included in this survey include: gross profit margins of long-term care/closed-door pharmacies, pharmacists' salaries, prescription payer mix, Medicare Part A contracting terms, stat deliveries, consultant pharmacist productivity and contracting, and implementation of technology solutions such as ePrescribing, electronic medication administration records (eMARs), electronic medical records, and automated dispensing.
