Three Pharmacy Benefit Experts to Discuss Post-Discharge Medication Reconciliation Strategies in June 26 Webinar
Date:6/17/2013

But who is going to flag any potential drug-to-drug interactions, duplicate therapies, gaps in care or other therapy problems? Three pharmacy benefit experts with considerable experience observing and addressing medication reconciliation issues will review the pros and cons of different strategies in “Post-Discharge Medication Reconciliation Strategies for Health Plans and PBMs,” the upcoming June 26 webinar from Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS).

The more patients bounce from doctor to hospital to other sources of care without an advocate monitoring what medications they’re taking (or not taking), the greater the likelihood of costly hospital readmissions or other unfavorable outcomes, including death. How can health plans and PBMs improve the effectiveness of medication reconciliation? What approaches work best? What outcomes have plan sponsors seen with different programs? And how should medication reconciliation be reimbursed?

In the June 26 webinar, Jan Berger, M.D., M.J., chief medical officer at Silverlink Communications and a longtime advocate of medication therapy management programs, Brian Solow, M.D., F.A.A.F.P., chief medical officer for OptumRx, and Dean T.

These and other questions will be addressed:
