Medication Management Program in Partnership with Partners In Care Foundation
HomeMeds medication safety program is an evidence-based program that is proven to improve medication use and reduce duplication.
- Do you see multiple doctors?
- Do you fill prescriptions at multiple pharmacies?
- Have you recently experienced a fall, dizziness, or unusual confusion?
- Have you recently been to the ER or hospital?
- Do you take multiple medications?
- Do you take blood thinners or diabetes medications?
- Do you take over-the-counter drugs or supplements?
- Do you take medication to help you sleep?
This program is a free review of all your medications by a pharmacist. If you answer "Yes" to some or all of the following questions, you may benefit from a review. During a review, a staff member visits with you at home to prepare a list of all your medications, including over-the-counter drugs and supplements. A trained pharmacist then reviews this list to identify any problems and interactions. The pharmacist will work with you and your doctors to make sure you are only taking the medications that are right for you.
Why Should I Participate?
A Doctor's View
"Medication review is a major opportunity for improving patient safety and outcomes, something we don't always have enough time to do during an office visit. The ideal solution is to have trusted eyes at the patient's home to perform a thorough assessment. HomeMeds helps me get a true evaluation that i can rely on."
- Dr. Manoj Matthew
What HomeMeds Clients Say
"I was having a lot of dizziness until the pharmacist explained that I should not be taking my thyroid medication at the same time as all my other medications. Now I take it with a glass of water 30 minutes before my other meds and rise slowly from sitting or lying down. The dizziness has gone!"
A Pharmacist's View
"As pharmacists, we need to make sure that the right medication is given to the right patient at the right time. When multiple doctors prescribe medications for the same patient, it can result in severe side effects. HomeMeds lets us identify these patients and intervene."
