Pharmacy Technicians are trained Health Care professionals who
work in both institutional and community pharmacy settings under
the supervision of a pharmacist. Pharmacy technicians assist
pharmacists in dispensing medications and are accountable to the
supervising pharmacist who is legally responsible through state
licensure for the care and safety of patients served by the pharmacy.
Pharmacy technician job duties include providing medication and other health care products to patients and working with third party and doctors' offices in resolving adjudication of patients' insurance or state program. Pharmacy technicians often do the routine tasks associated with preparing prescribed medication and providing drugs to patients, but may also do compounding of medications, doctor calls, expense and medication orders, returns and expired credits, and non-licensed pharmacy management. State rules and regulations as well as job policies and procedures define the functions and responsibilities of pharmacy technicians.
