WVU Medicine pharmacies provide our community with advanced services that are not always commonly available. We take pride in offering our patients the highest level of care and competitive pricing strategies.

Pharmacy Compounding Services

mortar and pestleSometimes patients need unique custom drug strengths, dosage forms, or a combination of medications that are not available in a pre-manufactured way. In these instances your physician writes a prescription for what you need, and a compounding pharmacy mixes the needed medication. Not all pharmacies are able to offer compounding services. WVU Medicine pharmacies are pleased to be able to offer this unique service.

Advantages of a custom medication include:

  • Custom-made medication that is unavailable from drug manufacturers
  • Prescription flavoring to help children take their medicine
  • Easier to use dosage formats – for people with difficulty swallowing
  • Custom-made strengths
  • Custom-made combinations of medications

Patient Education and Information about Over-the-Counter Medications

Some over-the-counter medications can interfere with prescribed medications. Our pharmacists are always available for patient consultations to help you determine which nonprescription drugs you can use safely.

Blood Glucose Monitor Training

We train patients to use their blood glucose monitoring equipment properly. Some monitors are easier to use because they have fewer steps to operate. Some machines use less blood or time to get results, but the training will show you how to correctly operate your testing system so you can ensure that you are getting the most accurate readings.

We will train you to properly store and check your testing supplies for your monitor. Because test strips and monitor supplies can be expensive, we can help you verify that your insurance company covers the cost of the supplies before purchasing your monitor.

Our staff will teach you how to properly clean and maintain your selected unit and how to ensure your glucose monitor’s accuracy.

It is important, in addition to monitoring your blood glucose levels, that you maintain a written log of blood glucose test results. We will show you how to keep your testing records so you can take them with you to your doctor’s appointments.

Contact us to schedule an appointment for your diabetes monitoring equipment training.

Face-To-Face Diabetes Program with PEIA

If you have PEIA insurance and are a diabetic, this program can help improve your health and save you money.

In this program, pharmacists work with you to teach you about your condition, train you on the use of your testing meter, track your blood sugar level, and evaluate and track your medications to help you achieve the best level of health.

For more information, visit the West Virginia Public Employees Insurance Agency Face To Face Care Management Program website.

Patient Safety

The Medical Center Pharmacy uses a robotic system for prescription accuracy and patient safety. We have installed a robotic prescription dispensing system that can automatically fill up to 200 common prescriptions and the SP Checkpoint, which is a system that verifies other medications, such as liquid or specialty prescriptions.

SP 200® Robotic Prescription Dispensing System

sp200ScriptPro’s SP 200 is a proven and reliable prescription dispensing system that automates the repetitive, manual dispensing tasks most subject to human error.

The SP 200, interfaced with the pharmacy computer system, delivers filled and labeled vials for up to 150 prescriptions per hour. The system contains 200 universal dispensing cells. It handles tablets and capsules of all shapes and sizes and supports standard pharmacy vials. Because the system fills directly from the dispensing cells, there is no drug cross-contamination. The SP 200 also prints and applies the prescription and auxiliary labels and delivers uncapped vials for final inspection using on-screen drug image verification.

Bar codes are used throughout the process for accuracy and quality control. Pharmacists manage the dispensing process from prescription entry to approval of the finished product.

SP Checkpoint

spcentralSP Checkpoint is an interactive prescription verification, tracking, and management device that provides control over the entire dispensing process.

With SP Checkpoint, managers and supervisors can access pharmacy operations, local or remote, and view the status of prescriptions in process. Workload and workflow can be managed on-screen in real time.

Used at the point of dispensing, SP Checkpoint provides paperless prescription tracking and batching for each patient.

SP Station®

spstationSP Station is a compact, interactive device for manually dispensing medications. The countertop unit integrates a touchscreen monitor, labeling device, and bar code scanner to provide workflow control and dispensing accuracy.

SP Station interfaces with ScriptPro’s SP Central Workflow System to display on-screen prescription status lists and automate the collation of patient prescriptions. It presents prescription labels after verifying that the correct drug has been scanned, ensuring labeling accuracy.
