All recommendations are specific to individual patient profiles and are documented in an intervention log.
It goes without saying that every patient benefits from professional advice dispensed by community pharmacists. Although some may only need simple pharmaceutical care, this does not diminish the importance of counseling patients receive from pharmacists.
However, in most cases, the complex nature of a patient's condition makes organizing and managing interventions in a logical and coherent manner extremely important.
This is where Sherpa comes in. Sherpa is software that effectively manages clinical interventions and indicates, suggests and prioritizes pharmaceutical care based on a patient's profile. Sherpa therefore initiates pharmaceutical monitoring and serves as a memory since it commits all interventions to memory.
To give you an idea of the power of Sherpa, here is what users can accomplish with this program:
Whenever you renew a patient's medication, Sherpa analyzes the patient's profile and generates relevant tips and ideas for follow-up care based on the contents of that profile. Whenever possible, tips and follow-up ideas directly refer to the drugs being renewed that very day and are prioritized according to the patient's profile. From the list of suggestions, Sherpa will select a few tips and follow-up ideas that you can discuss with your patient that day. If you want to provide your client with a written copy of these tips and follow-up ideas, simply checkmark the proper box. Sherpa therefore saves each and every intervention to memory and suggests new ones for the patient's next visit.
How are priorities established?
When a patient is just starting to take medication to control hypertension, for example, Sherpa generates many tips. However, it goes without saying that some are more important than others and will therefore be given priority. After a few visits to the pharmacy for renewals, and once the most important tips have been relayed to the client, Sherpa will bring tips of secondary importance to the attention of the pharmacist.
Thanks to Sherpa, you can develop detailed treatment plans to help your patients reach their health objectives. You can use Sherpa as a log to track information on a patient's progress.
Sherpa adapts to your needs and to how you want to use it. You can, for example:
Sherpa is with you every step of the way and harmonizes with your practice.
