CHRYS SPECIALTY PHARMACY
Chrys Specialty Pharmacy is an outpatient pharmacy conceived to primarily serve
ACI for the special needs of patients with complex disease conditions like
cancer and other chronic ailments (hence the name ‘Chrys’) and is
administratively under the Hospital Pharmacy. It provides a wide range of
high-quality anticancer drugs and prescription drugs (including nutritionals,
medical devices and cosmetic paraphernalia) related to cancer treatment and its
comorbidities at very reasonable prices.
It offers integrated coordination of coverage for Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) patients and other patient assistance drug access programs of third party agencies (e.g., pharmaceutical companies). This will ease the financial burden of cancer treatment cost for cancer patients and their families. The AHMC PCSO Desk has been a tremendous partner in accessing medicines and radiotherapy of ACI patients. The Asian Hospital Charities, Inc. also provides a modest annual budget for low-resourced AHMC cancer patients.
ONCOLOGY DRUG COMPOUNDING UNIT
Oncology Drug Compounding Unit—located within the Chrys Specialty
Pharmacy—provides a dedicated on-site pharmacy that ensures that patients in
Chrys 1 Infusion Unit and Inpatient Ward receive the safest and most
comprehensive care during oncology chemotherapy. The clinical
pharmacists are responsible for communicating closely with the oncologists,
oncology nurses, and others with Chrys 1 Infusion Unit needs. Extensive safety
measures are taken during the preparation and administration of chemotherapy.
Electronic order entry systems, multiple checks of the patient record, and
dosing parameters are used to prevent medical errors from occurring.
