Product Update: Recommending Probiotics in Amplicare

Posted on in Product Updates by Amplicare Team

Amplicare pharmacies now have access to a new feature through Amplicare Restore: probiotic recommendations. The feature is available as a category in the app’s Nutrient Depletion worklist.

Each recommendation is an opportunity to help improve the health of your patients. The beneficial bacteria in the gut microbiome play a key role in digestion, the absorption of nutrients, gastrointestinal health, and the immune system. Certain prescription medications such as antibiotics can upset the balance of beneficial bacteria, leading to an increased risk of C-Diff. and yeast infections as well as digestive issues, diarrhea, and other side effects. Probiotics help to maintain this essential balance in the gut and restore it when disrupted.

The recommendations target two specific categories: patients on acid-reducing medications, such as proton pump inhibitors or H2 blockers, and patients who take antibiotics as maintenance therapy for chronic conditions.

Accessing the New Feature

Pharmacies using Restore can access these opportunities through the Amplicare dashboard. The probiotic recommendations identify patients in the categories above who would benefit from taking probiotics to restore the balance of beneficial bacteria in their bodies. Each opportunity also provides a personalized handout with educational information to give to patients or serve as a conversation starter. 

If your pharmacy uses Amplicare Assist, you can also be notified in workflow when filling for a patient. Be sure to activate Nutrient Depletion opportunities in your Assist settings in order to receive the notifications. As a reminder, you can always customize your Assist notifications to better suit your workflow. 

Restore subscribers can access a list of patients with probiotic recommendation opportunities here. Not yet a Restore subscriber? Reach out to us to learn more about how it can benefit your pharmacy.
