St. Dominic Hospital improves patient safety, pharmacy cost savings, and antimicrobial stewardship efforts

To identify cost savings opportunities, the St. Dominic’s pharmacy team wanted to take a multi-disciplinary approach to decrease pharmacy costs for the hospital and improve patient experience. After conducting a pharmacy budget assessment and identifying that chemotherapy and biologic agents were increasing the budget exponentially, St. Dominic’s set out to identify areas to improve spend and measure and optimize the acute care pharmacy’s contribution to clinically appropriate cost savings.  

Through its use of Sentri7, St. Dominic improved pharmacy spend, increased team collaboration, and improved patient satisfaction. “The support of our leadership, oncologists and patients was instrumental” Katie Schipper, PharmD, Clinical Pharmacist, St. Dominic Hospital. “This support, combined with the teamwork across nursing, physician and pharmacy teams, allowed us to optimize our workflow and improve our patients’ experience.” 

In this case study, discover how St. Dominic’s pharmacy team drove significant results with managing costs associated with high-cost therapies.
