“The pharmacy team has worked very hard to improve many areas of our pharmacy operations and clinical accomplishments over the past 11 years,” said Michael Omar, R.Ph., Pharmacy Director at North Country Hospital.

The Best Practices Award was awarded to the team for its success in achieving a 95+ percent compliance score on the CPS Annual Rx-Assess Audit, an intense and thorough review of key pharmacy performance indicators with particular emphasis on regulatory, financial and operational matters, as well as areas such as customer service, quality assurance and performance improvement.
