On Dec. 30th, Boston Medical Center opened the BMC Pharmacy at Codman Square Health Center, BMC’s first offsite pharmacy. The pharmacy, located on the ground floor of the Health Center, has dramatically improved service, as it offers a seamless link between BMC and Codman’s electronic medical records. Many of Codman’s patients are also patients at BMC.
BMC Pharmacists are nationally certified, in addition to being registered health providers with the commonwealth. In addition, the pharmacy has added a new state-of-the-art automation device, as well as other technology upgrades.
The BMC Pharmacy at Codman easily accesses interpreters in 240 languages so that patients can communicate in the language in which they feel most comfortable. Patients can also use the mobile app called Pocket Rx, where they can check their profile and request refills without having to make any phone calls. (The app is available at on iTunes, or Google Play.)
