How will a hospital pharmacist know a Primary Care Clinical Pharmacist (PCCP) has seen a patient? 

  • A MR-PCN code in a patient’s PharmaNet profile indicates that a PCCP has provided care to that patient.

How can hospital pharmacists and PCCPs work together?

  • PCCPs and hospital pharmacists can share information, improve transitions of care and reduce medication errors associated with readmission after discharge. 
  • A PCCP can provide information for a hospitalized patient.
  • When a MR-PCN code is in PharmaNet, the hospital pharmacist can request documentation or discuss handover with a PCCP.
  • Some PCNs permit direct referral from a hospital pharmacist to a PCCP or recommend a PCCP referral to family physician/nurse practitioner.
