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.
