Webinar Overview:

Home Health Value Based Purchasing, Star Ratings, Home Health Compare and the IMPACT ACT all have targeted aspects of medication management as key outcomes as part of their quality initiatives.

Medication errors and interactions can have serious health consequences. Medication related issues are a leading cause of hospitalization/re-hospitalization for all patients, but particularly for older patients. This webinar will promote best practices in medication management, including: identifying the most important moments to review medications, tools that improve medication management, and the importance of caregiver communication so that proper precautions are taken to prevent medication-related issues.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Provide a brief overview of projects that have had a significant impact on improving the patient’s life quality while reducing health care costs and reducing other negative consequences of inadequate medication management.
  • Discuss the accurate scoring of the OASIS items related to medication management to ensure that home health agencies capture credit for their contributions to superior outcomes.
  • Identify tools available to improve medication management, with special focus on the drug regimen review and focused interventions that have proven effective in decreasing medication related issues.
