Medication nonadherence is a common issue in the United States, contributing to as much as $300 billion in avoidable health-related costs each year. Because seniors often take multiple medications, they are at high risk for nonadherence and hospital readmissions, making this an area of emphasis for both PACE pharmacy and long-term care pharmacy. While residents are cared for in a Skilled Nursing Facility, their medication needs are overseen by medical and pharmacy providers. However, issues can arise during care transition, as these residents are transitioned to the home environment. Fortunately, there is a solution. Grane Rx offers a program called Meds2Home™ that dispenses and ships patients’ medications to their homes. Meds2Home is offered for both SNF residents following discharge and PACE participants. Let’s take a look at five ways that Meds2Home can benefit your long-term care organization.
