With preventable hospital readmissions in America costing the healthcare system $25 billion annually, the stakes for improving transition of care from the hospital are high. MaxCare Pharmacy has developed a transition solution that may reduce preventable readmissions while improving patient satisfaction and health outcomes: Our Hospital Discharge Program incorporates a multi-step process that spans the discharge period – with our on-site pharmacists working in collaboration with your clinical healthcare team.
A thoughtful approach to changing how we think about care:
1) Medication alignment and prescription therapy planning.
Our clinicians review existing prescriptions with new prescriptions issued in the hospital, to recommend proper alignment. This process is essential to patient safety, helps adherence and satisfaction, and reduces potential errors.
2) Bedside medication delivery.
Upon discharge, we ensure patients receive their prescriptions, establishing an accurate start to medication therapy.
3) Patient counseling and clinical follow-up.
We extend care by following up with primary care providers, counseling patients on medication regimen, and increasing patients’ connection with the extended care team immediately after discharge.
4) Bridge to the community.
We contact the patient 9 days after discharge, and again at 25 days, to reinforce patient understanding, promote adherence, offer disease-specific consultation, encourage contact with physicians, and assess satisfaction.
