Additionally, we have a Corporate Medical Director who is also a licensed Nursing Home Administrator and is active in in the American Medical Directors Association. He provides input as needed in the development of disease state management programs, and participates regularly in our consultant pharmacist meetings.
Green Tree Pharmacy places a high level of importance on training and education. While not previously required, we have strongly encouraged our techs to prepare for and become certified through the certified pharmacy technician program. Almost all of our data entry techs have become certified or are currently preparing for the exam. We have an internal training program to assist them in attaining that credential. They are well-qualified to communicate effectively with the facility nursing staff.
