CLOZAPINE RISK EVALUATION AND MITIGATION STRATEGY ( REMS ) *

Effective Date: 
Thu, 02/22/2018
Policy: 

The UCSC Student Health Center Pharmacy follows the Clozapine REMS - Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy for our patients on this high risk medication via the Clozapine REMS website.

 

The Pharmacy is certified and enrolled in the program and re-qualifies online at the website every two years.  The trained pharmacists filling the prescription review the laboratory tests and depending on the results, can fill the prescription.  The pharmacists process the prescription and at adjudication, will see whether the claim and REMS was successful. 

While it is not required, the pharmacists document the Predispense Authorization, or PDA on the hard copy of the prescription or refill label which is included in the claim adjudication and stored there for future reference.
