Guardian Pharmacy of Minnesota finds USP compliance success with Simplifi 797

Simplifi 797® helps take the guesswork out of USP compliance for Chapters 795, 797 and 800 to deliver more consistent results. Customers like Guardian Pharmacy of Minnesota draw on the deep knowledge of Wolters Kluwer’s USP expert team and compliance solution best practices to transform evidence-based guidance into easy-to-use closed-loop content and tasks tailored to their USP 797 compliance needs.

For Tim Magarian, RPh, Director of Pharmacy Operations at Guardian Pharmacy of Minnesota, having the deep domain expertise available through Simplifi 797 gave him the confidence to step forward as a new pharmacy leader.  

When I first started in IVs many years ago, it was a bit intimidating and a big learning curve. I gained experience as a front-line pharmacist in infusion care and had a general understanding of the USP standards. Now that I am a Pharmacy Director, I know that I can rely on the content in Simplifi 797 to provide a framework for USP 797 compliance and the expert resources to ensure our pharmacy is delivering the excellence we promise.

Sterile compounding compliance and competency

Guardian Pharmacy of Minnesota serves a long-term care population with a variety of medication needs. When it comes to sterile compounding, Magarian customizes the Simplifi 797 policy and procedure templates to meet the unique needs of their pharmacy, adopting best practices such as proper and consistent cleaning techniques to keep patients safe. Staff training and competency is a crucial piece of Guardian Pharmacy’s compliance program. By delivering Critical Point modules and competency documentation in complete alignment with the facility’s policies and procedures and daily workflows, Simplifi 797 serves as a robust resource to ensure his staff is well versed in the USP standards. The day-to-day documentation is easy to manage and customized to meet facility needs and ensure compliance tasks are visible. 

As PIC, I can echo the sentiment that having the knowledge that Simplifi 797 provides everything we need to ensure compliance from a regulatory perspective allows us the confidence to focus on the second-to-none clinical services our clients expect. We spend less time with the (still important) generalities and more time on patient care, which is the way it should be.

Compliance oversight and expertise

Lastly, Simplifi 797’s Analytics application ties everything together and provides total oversight into their compliance efforts. Having each part of their compliance program in alignment and customized to their specific needs gives both pharmacy leaders peace of mind that they can monitor compliance, know their gaps and be inspection ready at all times.

In addition to the day-to-day support the software provides, Simplifi 797 has benefited Guardian Pharmacy with on-demand expert guidance. When it came time to update some equipment in the IV room, Magarian reached out to the Simplifi 797 team for expert support. His goal was to ensure their policies and procedures, training and competency, and tasks were updated to support the equipment changes. Annie Lambert, PharmD, BCSCP and Clinical Program Manager for Simplifi 797, provided guidance to confirm all the new practices were aligned with the USP standards. 

Simplifi 797 has been such an asset to our pharmacy. It’s great that I can trust the content as well as talk to someone knowledgeable in the field. It means a lot to know I have an expert in my corner whenever I need some backup.
