Pacific Neuropsychiatric Specialists began a relationship with AHCS Pharmacy approximately six years ago in an effort to provide better care and services to our patient community.
As with every relationship one is unsure of how the relationship will work over time. There are expectations and often time the reality to fulfill those expectations is not quite met.
From the onset we discovered that AHCS was true to their word, the quality of service and attention to detail were evident from the very beginning.
We were delighted to find that they report accurately which medications are dispensed as well as monitoring and tracking refills for our patients which helps us provide better care.
They offer services that generic pharmacies do not, including delivery and educating the patients and the providers on medications and interactions.
They also offer Medication monitorization for our patients where their pharmacists review the medications with the patients to avoid medication-medication interactions.
We look forward to continuing our relationship with AHCS for many years to come due to their interest in the wellbeing of our patients and due to the warm and human interactions that they offer.

Since 2017 Global Transitional Care has the pleasure of being supported by the experienced team at Advantages Healthcare Services. Global Transitional Care is a comprehensive transitional medicine practice that provides complex healthcare services to patients with chronic/complex illness. Our mobile in-home approach to care requires a very adept relationship with a pharmacy company that not only provides distribution of medications but incredible communication and rapid response to the chronic needs of our patients.
Advantage healthcare services has not only served in this capacity for us, but they have been an expert in supporting our providers and patients. Their advanced knowledge of critical educational information and therapeutic resources changes the profile of how our providers practice. We're grateful that we have a partner that serves with distinction and demonstrates an advanced clinical approach with compassionate care at its core.

I have had the pleasure to work with AHCS for the past 5 years.
Prior to partnering with AHCS, CDCR Behavioral Health and Reintegration program struggled maintaining access to medication and understanding our own analytics involving med management continuity of care.
Through a collaborative process, AHCS and BHR management were able to find areas of data mapping that provided greater resolution into our patients medication recondition and significant improvements in medication adherence and patient outcomes across multiple metrics.
I wholeheartedly recommend AHCS. Engagement with AHCS was highly specific and personalized to each clinic yet provided informatics overlay and reach that ensured consistent service delivery and measurable outcomes.

I would like to take a moment and express my gratitude to AHCS for their collaboration. As the Director of Pharmacy, for a large mental health organization, we have many complex needs. The AHCS team constantly and consistently makes themselves available to meet the needs of the Patients that we serve. Whether its sourcing complex medication solutions or providing on-site vaccination and injection services, AHCS exceeds all expectations for the standard of Patient care.
I look forward to a continued relationship that fosters the most innovative and highest standard of care for our Patients.

In my over 30 years of experience in the Los Angeles area, Market Pharmacy has clearly been the benchmark for professionally delivered customer service. Their knowledgeable, responsive, and courteous staff always go above and beyond all other pharmacies to provide exemplary care to my patient population. They are a highly prized treasure of our community.

Aalpha Pharmacy goes above and beyond, by providing excellent customer service in a prompt and timely manner. They have specialty experience in serving both community outpatient, and forensic related organizations. Furthermore, they have strong knowledge of Long Acting Injectable medications (LAI's), while serving as a guide to provider's who are not familiar with the Prior Authorization process. There is not enough that can be said about the positive attributes of Aalpha Pharmacy and it's new leadership. I recommend them without reservation.

I have had the pleasure of working with the Advantage team over the past several years. We have participated as co-panelists with the California Access Coalition (CAC) and California Partnership for Access to Treatment (CPAT) on public webinars about the efficacy of long-acting injectable medications (LAIs) for justice-involved populations. Additionally, we continue to work on multiple thought leader initiatives to support patient access to LAIs and decrease barriers.
Without question the Advantage team has a deep commitment to supporting the Severely Persistently Mentally Ill (SPMI) population across the entire state of California. They have developed innovative approaches and service offerings that have resulted in LAI persistence rates that supersede national averages. The Advantage team utilizes a whole person care approach that supports SPMI patient cohorts across forensic, homeless, and transient populations.
I am excited to collaborate on more projects with the Advantage team in the future.
