Leaders in Pharmacy Practice and Innovation
Indian Health Service (IHS) pharmacists practice in a true pharmaceutical care environment where they fully apply their clinical knowledge and skills. IHS has pioneered many progressive and innovative practices over the past thirty years. IHS Pharmacists have helped established current standards of pharmacy practice by accessing the patient's entire health record including laboratory results, immunization status, and past medical history to assess the appropriateness of drug therapy, manage therapy and disease.
