Discharge Meds with AmerisourceBergen

Discharge Meds

Discharge prescriptions medications represent a strategic extension of your ambulatory pharmacy. Studies show that when a patient is discharged with medications in-hand, compliance and associated health outcomes are greatly enhanced, thereby reducing the risk of 30-day readmissions. In addition, patient counseling on the correct administration of discharge medications can positively impact HCAHPS scores. In short, a concierge medications program can improve patient care while significantly contributing to the bottom line.

 

Researchers have estimated that up to 19 percent of discharged patients experienced an adverse event after discharge, of which roughly two-thirds were attributed to medications.
