We operate more than 30 clinic-based retail pharmacies. Our pharmacies share a common medical records system with M Health Fairview hospitals and clinics that assist us in providing optimum care for our patients. We offer clinical programs in partnership with the clinics to meet shared goals with blood pressure, adherence, asthma and immunizations. We also offer competitive prices, expert consultation, mail service, and medication therapy management. Our pharmacies can be used by anyone, not just M Health Fairview patients. Key to our success is point-of-care integration with clinic providers and making the extra effort to capture our patients prescriptions, rather than relegating them to outside pharmacies that have less of a stake in our patients health outcomes.
