The Cost of Non-Compliance: DUR and Regimen Review (On-demand)

Overview

Non-compliance of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 (OBRA-90) can come at a cost to the compounding pharmacist. The OBRA-90 was largely created to reduce the US budget deficit by improving therapeutic outcomes. However, the means by which these savings were realized has ultimately impacted healthcare, notably the pharmacist through prospective drug utilization review (DUR) requirements, patient counseling responsibilities, and record-keeping duties.

This webinar aims to facilitate compounding pharmacists in remaining compliant with OBRA-90 pharmacist obligations by navigating the elements and requirements of the DUR (prospective, concurrent, retrospective), patient counseling (including medication guides), and correct and effective document recording.

    L. Rad Dillon, R.Ph, MA, ASQ CSSGB, ASQ CQA 

    Rad graduated from the University of Texas College of Pharmacy in 1981, having previously obtained B.A. and M.A. degrees in anthropology at the same university. After short stints in traditional retail, long term care and hospital pharmacy, he settled into a long career in home infusion / specialty pharmacy, working for various regional and national providers. This included periods in direct management roles and support roles. The support roles frequently involved the oversight of sterile compounding facilities, the writing of policies and procedures, and training.

    Beginning in 2011 he began obtaining various American Society for Quality (ASQ) certifications, including Certified Quality Manager, Certified Quality Auditor, and Certified Six Sigma Green Belt.

    From 2014 until early 2020 he served as a contract surveyor for ACHC / PCAB, traveling coast-to-coast surveying every form of pharmacy this organization accredits, including sterile and nonsterile compounders. During this time he also wrote a policy and procedure manual for compounding pharmacies that is still marketed today.

    In early 2020 he converted to full time employment with ACHC / PCAB, and continues with surveying, consulting and writing assignments with this organization.

    Rad lives in Loveland, Colorado.
