Transition of Care

MEDICATION MISADVENTURES AFTER DISCHARGE

Following a hospitalization, the transition back to the home can be a time of great medical vulnerability. Most readmissions occur within 72 hours after discharge. In addition, over half of all readmissions are associated with inappropriate medications.

PROVIDING CARE THROUGH THE TRANSITION

Our clinical pharmacy team is dedicated to helping patients return home safely. Through our comprehensive medication management services, we identify medication-related problems including nonadherence, inappropriate therapy, drug interactions, and insurance billing issues. Using this information, we coordinate with the patient, providers, and community health services to address these issues.

Each patient has specific needs. With this in mind, our clinical pharmacists help patients to find a plan of action that meets their individual health goals.

FOCUS ON PATIENTS, FOCUS ON OUTCOMES

We believe that focusing on the patient leads to better health outcomes. Collaborating with world-renowned universities, we strive to critically evaluate the effectiveness of our programs.

Our transition of care program has been proven to reduce 30-day readmissions by 28% and 180-day readmissions by 32% (1). These results have translated to 6-month cost savings of over $2,100 per patient (2).
