Wolters Kluwer Health announced today that Pharmacy OneSource, software-as-a-service provider of Sentri7, a clinical surveillance, documentation and reporting tool, is hosting a complimentary webinar with Steve Rough, MS, RPh, on "Developing a Business Case for Advancing Pharmacy Services."
Times are tough, capital dollars are scarce. Pharmacy leaders are often challenged with limited resources and high performance expectations, and they struggle with effectively presenting ideas to senior leadership to obtain new resources to expand the services and contributions of the pharmacy department.
You have identified a major initiative that you want your department to implement, but you aren't sure of the steps to make your vision become a reality, especially in light of the current economic realities of health-care. What do you need to hand your boss so that they quickly understand the cost/benefit of the program you want to implement? How do you create a tool that makes your item stand out in the request for capital or new personnel? Rough will walk you through the major steps of a successful business proposal.
Developing a Business Case for Advancing Pharmacy Services
DATE: Wednesday, October 26, 2011
