Company Background 

Visante is a multidisciplinary, clinician-composed consulting firm specializing in all aspects of the business of pharmacy.

Our 60-plus consultants include experienced pharmacists, nurses, physicians, IT professionals, and business experts, all working together to ensure you get the right solutions for your unique needs. No matter what your specific challenge is, we always know what matters most – delivering safe, high-quality, cost-effective patient care so you can continue to grow.

Sterile and Non-Sterile Compounding Compliance That Drives Safe, High-Quality, Cost-Effective Care 

Safely compounded medications are essential to quality patient care. Hospitals face the challenge of optimizing care while also meeting safety requirements and managing cost. We will prepare you for compliance with USP Chapters <795>, <797>, <800>, and <825>. We’ll also assist you in preparing for compounding related inspections by the CMS, FDA, DEA, and Joint Commission/DNV. Our consulting services include: USP <795>, <797>, <800>, and <825> gap assessment and facility design; 503A, 503B assessment, facility design, and implementation support; and home infusion compounding services. When it comes to pharmacy compounding, we don’t settle for basic compliance – and you shouldn’t either. Our processes are designed to assist you and your team to be successful. 

Drug Diversion Prevention Protects Your Patients and Yourself 

Drug diversion problems continue to escalate with opioid addiction at epidemic levels. Our program takes a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach to identify drug diversion risk points in your medication use processes. Minimize risk through assessment of pharmacy operations, informatics, automation, nursing, and perioperative processes to identify and strengthen points of vulnerability. Our drug diversion experts have real-life experience in hospitals and health systems and understand the challenges hospitals face today and in the future.
