Abstract

Medication regimens can be complicated during the transition from hospital to home for a variety of reasons. The primary purpose of this retrospective study was to measure the impact of integrating a pharmacist into a model of care at a Medicare-certified home healthcare agency for clients recently discharged from the hospital. The secondary purpose was to describe the medication-related problems among clients receiving services from the model of care involving a pharmacist. Integrating a pharmacist within the model of care demonstrated a positive clinical impact on clients.
