Expanding Our Reach: Inpatient Pharmacists Reducing Readmissions Within a Health System

Date & Time:
Tuesday, September 29, 2015, from 1:30pm - 3:00pm EST

Program Overview:

Following the 2012 launch of the Hospital Readmission Reductions Program (HRRP), the impact of readmissions penalties has resulted in health-systems seeking effective strategies to improve transitions of care and keep patients out of the hospital.  As new programs are being developed, pharmacists naturally play an important role in the prevention of readmissions due to medication misadventures. Focusing on the patient’s discharge as an important transition of care, join our speakers as  they describe their experiences during a successful pilot program, including workflow adaptation, preliminary outcomes, and patient care interventions. Speakers will share their methodology for expanding their current pharmacist readmission reduction program while discussing the challenges that have been encountered along the way.

 

Intended Audience: 
Interdisciplinary teams are encouraged to attend together:

  • Hospital and Health System Leadership
  • Quality and Risk Management Leaders
  • Physician, Pharmacy, and Nursing Leaders
  • Patient and Medication Safety Officers
  • Frontline pharmacists, nurses, technicians

Objectives:
Following completion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Explain readmission risk due to medication misadventures
  • Describe how pharmacists are well-positioned to help address the readmission problem
  • Develop a pilot model using inpatient pharmacists at the discharge transition to reduce readmissions in a health-system
  • Describe patient cases where transitional medication issues were identified and resolved by pharmacists
