Formulary management is handled in the pharmacy information system. A CPS representative will contact the facility to alert the staff that a prescribed medication is non-formulary.
Therapeutic Interchange Program (TIP)
Therapeutic interchange is the dispensing of medications by pharmacists that are chemically different, but therapeutically similar to the medication prescribed. A Therapeutic Interchange Program has the potential to ensure the quality of care and improve outcomes for residents at a reduced cost. If requested, CPS will work with your clinical and executive leadership to develop a specific, cost-effective therapeutic interchange program for the benefit of your residents and your facility.
