Leveraging pharmacists to reduce medication-related hospitalizations among older adults: the Pharm2Pharm model

April 18, 2018, 12 pm-1pm 
Auditorium, local 2458,Hôpital et centre d’hébergement D’Youville, 1036 Belvedere sud, Sherbrooke

 

This presentation will describe the strategic deployment of pharmacists in hospital and community settings in a care transition and care coordination model focused on medication issues that cause hospitalization and readmission among high risk, high cost patients. The implementation of this « Pharm2Pharm » model in Hawaii will be described along with the research design used to evaluate its impact. Results will be presented, including reduction in medication-related hospitalization rates and return on investment in the pharmacists.

Karen Pellegrin is Director of Continuing Education and Strategic Planning, Founding Director of the Center for Rural Health Science, and senior faculty at the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. She received her PhD in clinical psychology from the University of South Florida, completed a postdoctoral fellowship in health psychology and quality management at the Medical University of South Carolina, and received her MBA from The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina. She was Principal Investigator and Project Director for the « Pharm2Pharm » program, funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation.
