Berkeley, CA, Sept. 14, 2020 – The ability to speak with a pharmacist has become increasingly difficult in recent years, as most licensed pharmacists have little or no time to interact with patients and doctors. During COVID-19, having access to a pharmacist is even more needed. People are increasingly concerned about their health and wellness, and many are more comfortable with a telehealth doctor visit and delivery of their medications to their home.
Unfortunately, and traditionally, most compounding pharmacies throughout the United States are not open on nights and weekends. In some cases, speaking to a live person at a pharmacy during those extended hours are critical for patients, doctors, and staff.
In an effort to increase accessibility and reduce customer anxiety and stress, Valor Compounding Pharmacy™ has implemented ValorConnect™. This new service allows customers the ability to reach a licensed pharmacist after hours on nights and weekends by text or phone at (855) 554-2889.
“Being able to speak with a live person can make all the difference in a customer or patient’s experience. We have heard positive feedback from patients who felt less anxiety and stress, and from physicians catching up on work orders in off hours, that ValorConnect™ is a great service,” said Lauren Honda, Pharmacist in Charge and Director of Compliance of Valor Compounding Pharmacy.
“We are testing the demand for after hours availability to speak with a pharmacist when patients and customers are in need, and we are excited to measure its impact. As a data driven pharmacy company, we make decisions based on customer and patient demand. They are always at the forefront of every decision we make,” said Rick Niemi, CEO of Valor Compounding Pharmacy.
Valor continues to innovate new levels of service that result in better customer and patient care. Saving time, simplifying processes, and ensuring quality and timely medication delivery, are just part of what makes Valor unique in the marketplace.
