PATIENT CARE SERVICES
A large part of what separates a specialty pharmacy from a retail pharmacy are the outcomes that are monitored by the Pharmacist.
At Factor One Source FAST Pharmacy we track your outcomes, hospital visits, doctor visits, medication compliance, side effects, and reactions all so we can tailor the best therapy and recommendations specific for YOU.
Chronic illness and conditions are very costly, and we know that it takes a great deal of coordination to make sure your needs are met. At Factor One Source FAST Pharmacy, we offer free financial counseling regarding your medical needs, and help you become educated and empowered as you obtain treatment for your medical needs.

What is Osteoporosis?Worldwide, one in three women and one in five men aged 50 years and over will suffer an osteoporotic fracture. Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and fragile, so that they break easily – even as a result of a minor fall, a bump, a sneeze, or a sudden movement. Fractures caused by osteoporosis can be life-threatening and a major cause of pain and long-term disability.
PreventionCan osteoporosis and fractures be prevented? Yes, if action is taken early! Read the information provided here to learn which steps you can take to build strong bones throughout life and avoid osteoporotic fractures.
The Care GapFractures due to osteoporosis have a devastating impact on millions of people worldwide and result in enormous socio-economic costs to society and healthcare systems. Yet, despite effective medical advances to reduce fractures, a minority of men and women actually receive treatment. Only 10% of older women with fractures actually receive osteoporosis therapy. In 2010, in Europe alone some 12.3 million people considered to be at a high risk for osteoporotic fractures were left untreated.
The 5 steps to healthy bones and a fracture-free future
1. Exercise regularlyWeight-bearing, muscle-strengthening and balance-training exercises are best.
2. Ensure a diet rich in bone-healthy nutrientsCalcium, vitamin D and protein are the most important for bone health. Safe exposure to sunshine will help you get enough vitamin D.
3. Avoid negative lifestyle habitsMaintain a healthy body weight, avoid smoking and excessive drinking.
5. Get tested and treated if needed
If you’re at high risk you will likely need medication to ensure optimal protection against fracture.
Have risk factors? Talk to your doctor, ask for testing.To become aware of any potential risk factors, take the IOF One-Minute Osteoporosis Risk Test. If you are over the age of 50 and you have one or more risk factors you should discuss these with your doctor and ask for an assessment of your bone health status. Lifestyle changes may be recommended and, for those at high risk, medication may be prescribed for optimal protection against fractures. Source: http://worldosteoporosisday.org/about-osteoporosis
