UCSF, Walgreens open new pharmacy to explore new models of patient-centered care
Date:2/25/2014

t can be managed with the right medications, but that means more and more patients are juggling multiple prescriptions, with complex instructions," said Joseph Guglielmo, PharmD, a leader in the field of clinical pharmacy and dean of the UCSF School of Pharmacy. "And, in many instances, this complicated medication list is inaccurate and incomplete. This collaboration aims to transform the practice of community pharmacies to enable pharmacists to do what they're trained to do, which is helping patients manage their health with the right medications and understand how to take them correctly."

The collaboration builds upon Walgreens' leadership in pioneering new approaches to pharmacy care, as well as UCSF's long history of collaboration in teaching, research and patient care between the School of Pharmacy and UCSF Medical Center, which together piloted the first hospital-based clinical pharmacy program in the nation, in the 1960s.

The project comes at a time when an estimated 82 percent of Americans use daily medications to manage their health and 29 percent take five or more medications, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Yet the National Consumers League reports that three of every four Americans say they do not always take their medications as directed, and an estimated one-third of all patients do not fill their prescriptions. The result is a high rate of both medication errors and readmissions to hospitals for patients whose illnesses could have been managed at home.

"Every time a patient is readmitted to the hospital because they did not take their medications, it has a direct impact on both their health and their health care costs," said Daniel Wandres, PharmD, chief pharmacy officer of UCSF Medical Center. "By creating this three-way collaboration, we hope to create a national model for eliminating medication-related readmissions and reducing medication errors nationwide."
