What is a Pharma Tech? CPhTs help support the healthcare mission to maximize overall health outcomes through medication compliance and regulation. Their efforts are greatly needed and appreciated to ensure the highest quality of care is given to our patients.
If you are interested in a position that highlights the skills of attention to detail, competency, professionalism, patient-oriented and a team player, this line of work might be right for you. A Pharma Technician has a significant role to assist a pharmacist in dispensing medications to patients. They also help to ensure medication orders are made, phone calls are answered and information is provided to patients and other healthcare professionals. Pharma techs also receive prescription orders and verify insurance coverage.
All job duties can depend on the work setting, staff support as well as state and local laws and regulations.
If you work with a Pharma Tech, take the time to thank them on October 15th for all their hard work and the role they play in your workplace.
