Why change pharmacies?

How about cost control, reduced readmission, better service, and more? Designed specifically for skilled-nursing providers, our comprehensive medication management program delivers:

  • Expert cost management and online access. We help keep costs in check for everyone from patients to providers through formulary management and sophisticated reporting systems, including off-formulary alerts and auto-substitution options. Plus, our streamlined reporting and MySymbria portal provide fast online access to cost, prescribing, and payer data to give you the management power and speed you need.
  • Reduced readmissions. We help reduce costly readmissions by promoting patient compliance through our discharge planner and Dispense-to-Home program, which streamline transitions. And we're developing more programs to promote improved transitions.
  • Trusted skilled nursing pharmacy expertise and exceptional service. Symbria pharmacists are available 24/7 to answer questions or meet emergency needs. Our Consulting Pharmacists and Nurse Consultants also regularly visit on-site for chart reviews and quality meetings as well as to assist with survey compliance, environmental audits, and nurse education.


  • Improved efficiency and safety. Orders are packaged and delivered in pre-sorted seven-day strips identified by patient name, medication name, dosage, date, and administration time, enhancing med-pass accuracy and speed. Our leading-edge CheckPASS technology assures virtually no errors. In addition, all orders are bar-coded for use with electronic medication administration record (eMAR) solutions.
  • Less waste, fewer returns. Cycle fill options include one-day or seven-day to minimize waste and returns and help keep up with medication changes.
