Transition of Care: the movement of a Patient from one care setting to another
(e.g. hospital to home).   
If Done Poorly, it Can Lead to  Medication Errors, Gaps in Treatment, and Low Customer Satisfaction.

INFUSION ASSESSMENT

Many, but not all, Patients are able to be on home infusion.  Thorough Assessment and Identification of Patient's Risk and Success Factors of Infusion Therapy at Intake is necessary. Patients must be able to administer medications on their own, perform self-care, including activities of daily living and obtaining and eating an appropriate diet.  The home environment must allow for home infusion and they must be able to follow up with care providers.   Our Clinical Pharmacists thoroughly review and evaluate the risk and success factors for each new order, including Patient medical records, lab reports, and clinical notes at the initial stages of our process.  Once a Patient is approved for home infusion therapy, we verify and possibly adjust the order, always with the approval of the Physician, based on the Patient's most currently available lab reports. 
 

HOME COORDINATION

Our Infusion Coordinators work diligently to pull the many pieces for successful home infusion therapy together.  Right away, we begin reviewing insurance coverage to determine how to maximize our Patient's reimbursement benefits and identify any out of pocket costs.  Labs and home health must be coordinated and the Patient must be made aware of the progress of their order.  Training and delivery is arranged, and the Patient's provider is updated on the status of the order.  We offer turn-key coordination:  arranging nursing, creating communication regarding the Plan of Care, and easing the burden on our referral customers.  We do not use third parties for our coordination.  All the work of qualifying Patients for approval and maximizing their insurance reimbursement is performed by our own experts, whom are experienced in even the most complex intravenous therapies. 

MEDICATION RECONCILIATION

Our experienced Clinical Infusion Pharmacists perform a comprehensive and structured process of discovery to identify a best possible medication history ("BPMH") for each Patient, including verification with other treating providers, the Patient and Caregiver, and an examination of Patient chart records.  This is necessary to ensure safe prescribing and forms a foundation throughout the length of therapy.  The BPMH is shared and reconciled with outside members of the Patient's care team, and a comparison of that list against Infusion Orders prior to therapy is performed.  Continual updates to the BPMH are necessary.

CARE PLAN CONFIGURATION

Landmark Clinical Infusion Pharmacist take responsibility for configuring our Patients' Care Plans, including setting therapy Goals, evaluating Patient needs, establishing monitoring intervals, verifying following Physicians, and identifying intervention flags.  We make sure the care plan is customized for each Patient's therapy goals and coordinated and communicated across providers and to the Patient.   

MONITORING & COMMUNICATION

We also maintain high levels of proactive communication with our referral customers, labs and home health agencies.  We stay in close contact with our Patients on a regular basis to let them what is going on with their therapy and help continually educate and remind them of the fundamentals successful to their therapy.  We communicate with the following Physician and keep an eye out for any breakdowns in the Plan of Care or communication we can help fill.  It is a critical that the flow of information is orchestrated by the homecare provider so our Patients can focus on getting better.
