In a MedCity News article, Michael Awadalla, Executive Vice President Office of Applied Pharmacotherapy at TRHC, addresses the importance of personalized care for the elderly and others with complex care needs, who might take several medications. He points out that a one-size-fits-all approach to medication management is not sufficient – a more personalized approach is necessary and particularly important in value-based programs like Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE).
Michael discusses comprehensive reviews, where pharmacists consult with prescribers, offering personalized recommendations to optimize drug therapy. As he notes, optimizing drug therapy allows prescribers to make more informed decisions that reduce risk of harm. The end result is better outcomes for patients and organizations.Share this:
