  34. 34. Quantitative Outcomes (#, $)  Conservable Bed Days  Definition…relevance  Over 9 months, PDiF realized 8 weeks of conservable bed days  Medications involved – Warfarin, Methadone  Unexpected, but fascinating  Consequently – have started targeting patients on medications that are more likely to delay discharge  Warfarin / NOACs  Insulin
  35. 35. Top 5 lessons learned… 1. Dare to look at your patients’ experience post-discharge.  Are they seeing their family doctor post- discharge?  Are they getting their prescriptions filled as expected?  Are they going to other local hospitals for subsequent visits?  Follow-up phone calls are quick, and incredibly valuable!
  36. 36. Top 5 lessons learned… 2. Drugs delay discharge  Warfarin, LMWHs, insulins, methadone  We now assess 100% of patients on warfarin for timely and safe discharge from Medicine program  Assist with LMWH coordination post-discharge  Educate injection technique while in hospital  Phone call follow ups  Anticoagulation summary of INRs & warfarin doses,  Ensure patient has appt with PCP as well as plans to go to lab
  37. 37. Top 5 lessons learned… 2 ½ . Where there is warfarin (or NOACs) there are other medication misadventures looming  Warfarin and NOACs are predictors of other high- risk medications (insulin, digoxin, spironolactone, amiodarone etc)  Most computer systems can search for certain medications.  This is the best place to start!
  38. 38. Top 5 lessons learned… 3. Use the hospital admission to optimize chronic medications  Clinical inertia  Look for adherence issues!!!  ODB DPV has picked up on MANY misadventures  Incorporate practical medication discharge assessment upstream
  39. 39. Top 5 lessons learned… 4. Medication knowledge transfer contributes to efficient and safe patient care  GRH has an electronic discharge prescription but….  PCPs and Community Pharmacists need information about medications, including rationale and plans of care.  What is your eHealth system?  Fusion software (transcription software)  Clinical Connect (LHIN EHR)  Medication-Focused Discharge Summaries
  40. 40. Medication-Focused Discharge Summary One of the most valuable interventions from the PDiF project!
  41. 41. Medication-Focused Discharge Summaries Standardized document including  Date of Admission/Discharge  Adherence Issues Identified**  Drug Cost Issues Identified  Numerical List of medications  comment if same, increased, decreased or new  Medications discontinued or held  Additional information  Commentary including plan of care, monitoring plans, concerns  My name and telephone extension
  42. 42. Top 5 lessons learned… 5. Discharge medication reconciliation is time consuming!  Track outcomes/stories to strengthen your argument for more funding  Go to your program director with proposal  Develop a business case?  Dr. Schnipper’s data  Be creative in staffing  Pharmacist : patient ratio  Pharmacy students  Pharmacy Technicians Financially: 1 pharmacist ≈ 2 technicians ≈ 4 co-op students
  43. 43. Summary Was the PDiF project successful? Did we improve outcomes? Unequivocally Are there simple strategies every hospital can implement to help these patients? Absolutely Medication misadventures We don’t even know the magnitude of the problem yet
