Recorded March 30, 2021

This webinar 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
