The anticipated growth of the aging population has resulted in an increase in nursing home placements and ER admissions, often because of difficulties with complex medication regimens. Through the Medication Management Demonstration, IDoA seeks to reduce medication error rates and improve outcomes in clients who have historically been challenged by managing multiple medications at home.
The Medication Management Demonstration seeks to fill the gap left by the current delivery system that providers, pharmacies and hospitals do not have the capacity to address. The program will proactively identify and engage at-risk populations that meet eligibility criteria. An in-home assessment will be completed for each client and a certified pharmacist will conduct comprehensive medication reconciliation and review. Additionally, IDoA will assess how the use of experienced pharmacists employing proven methodologies can improve clinical outcomes for participants in a more economical way.
