The two-day advisory panel was held in person in Scottsdale, AZ and virtually, enabling a compelling exchange of insights between PACE medical directors and TRHC to help prepare for changes in PACE and today’s healthcare environment, to provide updates on TRHC service enhancements, and to share science and practice advances.

Knowlton, PharmD. “This highly anticipated event provides us with a unique opportunity to engage with PACE medical directors to discuss opportunities to embrace enhanced models of patient care.”
Attendees heard an overview of TRHC’s Medication Risk Mitigation (MRM) Matrix™ and participated in robust discussions focusing on medication safety and the important clinical consideration when deprescribing certain medications.
PACE medical directors also participated in important case discussions on the clinical impact and benefits of Pharmacogenetics (PGx) testing for opioids and psychotropic drug utilization and prevention of adverse drug events in older adults. Other sessions included discussions on the benefits of collaborative practice agreements between pharmacists and physicians, optimizing management of kidney failure in PACE, and keeping PACE participants safe during transitions of care.
In addition, attendees learned more about TRHC’s latest peer-reviewed publications. They received an overview of current research from TRHC Precision Pharmacotherapy Research & Development Institute which will enable PACE medical directors to apply the latest data to their use of the MedWise Risk Score™ in collaboration with board-certified pharmacists.
