Our facility has worked with Hometown Pharmacy since 2007. They have been professional, friendly, accommodating and timely. What has impressed me the most is their focus on service to both our residents and our staff. They have been willing to make extra trips to accommodate the delivery of urgent medications for our residents and have dealt directly with families over billing matters. Their staff communicates with physician offices and insurance companies in an attempt to make things smoother for their customers. They have always been available when I have called with questions about orders, medications or billing. They have also provided education for our staff. When an issue arises, as it sometimes does, they focus on getting the problem solved as quickly as possible. It certainly helps our facility staff to serve our residents in a more efficient manner.

The ECP System has definitely improved the med pass process. It saves time and assures a clear and consistent written order for medication administration. With the old MAR book there were many errors due to misunderstanding the book, the directions, and it was hard to read.

The vitals portion of ECP is great! It allows us to determine numerically and visually a baseline for individuals and it is a breeze to send this information to the resident’s health care providers.
