Making News in Puget Sound -- Connecting with Cardiology Patients in their Homes
Geoffrey Meer, PharmD | Kelley-Ross Foundation, Seattle, WA
Grant Title: Better care for high-risk patients. A community-based partnership to deliver in-home medication management.
CPF is co-funding a grant to support efforts of Kelley-Ross pharmacists for cardiology patients with complicated medication regimens. These patients often have poor medication adherence, struggle to meet healthcare goals, and pose a potential increased financial and workflow burden on cardiology clinics. Kelly-Ross pharmacists will coordinate in-home visits with patients as well as provide telephonic follow-up. The intensive in-home training will involve four pharmacist-led interventions: identification and resolution of medication-related problems and medication discrepancies; provision of patient-centered goal setting and education; referral to additional care as appropriate; and, facilitation of follow-up with cardiology clinic or primary care physician.
