TCT Pilot Program Reports due to Pharmacy Examining Board by July 31

July 10, 2018

Several Wisconsin pharmacies are piloting Tech-Check-Tech (TCT) programs, which allows pharmacy technicians to take on expanded roles, while ensuring patient safety and high quality. A TCT practice model utilizes abilities and resources in a smarter way by giving eligible, properly trained, and validated pharmacy technicians the ability to perform refill verifications, medication reconciliation, and complete the final check of a prescription filled by another technician. By reducing the time a pharmacist spends on completing final checks, pharmacists are able to reinvest their time in direct patient care.

If your pharmacy is participating in a Pharmacy Examining Board (PEB)-approved pilot program (i.e. Tech-Check-Tech, Technician Ratio, or Automated Technology Final Check), you must submit a one-page reporting form summarizing your pharmacy’s pilot participation to the PEB by July 31, 2018.

The reporting form for each pilot can be found online. The completed form should be faxed to 608-261-7083 or emailed to DSPSCredPharmacy@dsps.wi.gov. No attachments are needed when you submit this form, but additional detail may be requested by the Board on a case-by-case basis.
