Medication Management

The Care Coordinator and Caregiver Specialist will use the Partners In Care Foundation’s computerized risk assessment screening and alert process tool to analyze medication lists and symptoms to discover potential medication problems. By working with a pharmacist, who is a vendor, to review their clients medications in light of vital signs and adverse events such as falls, care coordinators can help the client avoid potentially dangerous medication problems. When indicated, the pharmacist works directly with the client’s physician. PICF has found that most of the problems were resolved be a change in medication or dose.
