Meds-to-Home

Meds-to-Home Program

Our PCA Cares program is designed to provide a 30-day supply of medications upon discharge for those residents transitioning back home from a short-term rehab stay. With a focus on convenience and safety, residents will have all of the medications needed upon discharge from the community without the wait and hassle of stopping at the pharmacy for the next 30 days. Our Meds-to-Home program is conducive in supporting appropriate medication regimen based upon the discharging physician’s prescribed orders. This program is proven to reduce the chance of the resident missing a dose, as their medications will be packaged in an easy-to-use punch card that is clearly marked with the medication name, strength, and directions for use: The Right Medication, Right Dose, at the Right Time. With recidivism being a primary focus for all, this program will help in reducing these rates due to non-compliance of taking medications.

What This Program Can Do For You

Consistency

The resident will have their medications available as soon as they leave the facility. This will allow their medication regimen to continue as prescribed and will reduce the chance they will not miss any doses. Consistent medication administration can help with an unnecessary return to the hospital.

Packaging

Medications will be dispensed via a punch card, which will allow for easy monitoring of doses taken and when to refill.

Cost Savings

Oftentimes, after a resident is discharged, they will have a follow-up appointment with their attending physician and medications will change. By sending a 30-day supply, it may prove to be cost saving for the resident.

Supports Planned Discharges.

Execution of this program should be planned as part of the best practices for discharge planning.
