Our Industry. Our Experience.

A preferred long term care pharmacy, In Touch has been meeting and exceeding our clients’ expectations since 2004. We understand the unique environment of the long term care industry and realize that medication waste and potential for medication error are major concerns, which is why we pioneered 7-day or less dispensing, years before the government implemented short-cycle dispensing. Our unique billing system results in cost savings, the ability to produce Med A vs private insurance split billing and post consumption billing.

Our business approach is straight forward, and we offer competitive pricing from the outset, making it easier for our clients to budget and provide a customer support team that has set the industry’s gold standard.

In Touch Pharmaceuticals serves long term care facilities in Illinois, Indiana and Michigan. Your residents pay just one dispense fee per month, plus you enjoy the technological advances afforded by the Pyxis™ system without any of the capital costs.

Correctional Facilities

Correctional facilities have a daunting task trying to keep a population with complex medical issues healthy while managing the cost of care. Many offenders must take multiple medications on varying schedules, meaning custody and health staff must have a supportive medication administration system.

Additionally, variable offender stays and recurrent movement, combined with a population that changes frequently, requires specialized dispensing to reduce waste and improve efficiency. In Touch offers you the best cost and the best service.

In Touch has a proven process to control costs in a correction environment.

Our recognized system helps patients and families reduce the risk of returning to the hospital or nursing care facility.
