Optimize Outcomes

Achieving success in all aspects of quality care ― clinical, operational, regulative, and financial ― means having a strategic partner that is solution-driven 24/7/365. Forum has you covered by providing industry-leading, metric-driven clinical and operational services that demonstrate both quality and value.

Reduce Hospitalizations

Medication-related problems are a key cause of hospital admissions and re-admissions, particularly in seniors. Forum’s clinical programs work in both skilled and alternate residential care settings to reduce medication burden, ensure appropriate therapeutic outcomes, avoid care transition discrepancies, and keep residents in place longer.

Reduce Risk & Liability

Having an accredited pharmacy partner with more than 50 years’ experience in long‐term care means that you can trust Forum to provide unmatched clinical and support services, and a dispensing accuracy rate of >99.9%. But we go beyond that to create pharmacy processes that help you ensure consistency and enforce your SOPs to protect your business.

Manage Costs

In health care, managing the bottom line is critical to survival. That’s why we’re such zealous guardians of your resources. It’s too easy for pharmacies to make choices that benefit their bottom line at the expense of your facility or your residents. Our processes focus on reducing unnecessary medications and preventing hidden and back-end, “nickel-and-dime charges” so they don’t add up.

And for your residents, we’re vigorous about getting prescriptions covered, facilitating prior authorizations, and finding the right insurance to suit their specific needs.
