How to request non-formulary medication

Please note that CHS is instituting a new policy regarding the order of Non-Formulary medications.  The ordering of Non-Formulary medications will include completion of the Non-Formulary Use Request.  When requests have been completed, they are to be sent to the Pharmacy Department.  The Pharmacy Director, Dima Awad, will be reviewing all requests for approval to use.  This pertains to all Inpatient and all Outpatient (SAGE, ATC/ATS) requests.  Pharmacy will be collecting data on requests which will assist in determining the need of products for Formulary Addition.  Also included is the most recent approved Therapeutic Interchange List for your review.

Thank you very much for your consideration.
