Iowa City, Iowa
Randy McDonough is co-owner and director of clinical services at Towncrest Pharmacy, where he has developed and implemented a community pharmacy practice that focuses on patient care services.
Implementing the kind of practice that Pharmacist Eugene White inspired me to develop, proving that pharmacists can enhance patient outcomes, improve utilization of health care resources, and reduce health care spend.
SOURCE OF INSPIRATION
Pharmacist Eugene White and his vision for community pharmacy has inspired me the most. I have the original article I first read about him from the early 1980s.
To be the best pharmacist I can be, provide my patients with the best care possible, and work collaboratively with other providers to ensure my patients are achieving their therapeutic outcomes with safe and effective therapy.
VISION FOR PHARMACY
Within 10 years, pharmacists will be interventionists—identifying and resolving drug therapy problems, working collaboratively with other health care providers, counseling and educating patients, and documenting their patient care activities.
