Join us on Tuesday, March 30 at 4:00pm ET for a HaH Users Group Webinar

WASHINGTON, DC USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE -- MARCH 17, 2021: The Hospital at Home Users Group, in partnership with the American Academy of Home Care Medicine, the American Hospital Association, and The John A. Hartford Foundation, is pleased to present the latest in our webinar series for hospital and system leaders interested in learning about implementation opportunities and challenges associated with the new CMS waiver supporting Acute Hospital Care at Home.

Our next presentation focuses on a topic raised time and again by Hospital at Home User Group members — how to best structure and integrate pharmacy services into a hospital at home program. Informed by the experience of Mount Sinai and Brigham Health, as well as hospitals and systems across the country, this webinar will address a wide range of practical considerations such as:

  • Service requirements for the CMS Acute Hospital Care at Home waiver
  • Why and when to build a standalone pharmacy function versus “buying” one
  • Best practices for using inpatient pharmacies vs. outside vendors and infusion companies
  • How to handle patient-administered medications
  • Managing your pharmacy-EHR integration
  • Treating patients’ chronic medications, as well as prescribing new medications
  • How to review existing pharmacy policies that may need to be updated
