Medication Management

Managing Medication from Home

Ensuring that your healthcare team is working together on your medication plan, in conjunction with the rest of your treatment, is vital to your recovery. Medication management is part of every patient’s plan of care. On our initial visit a clinician will complete a comprehensive medication reconciliation.

Medication education is provided to every patient based on each medication the patient is prescribed. This includes its purpose, how and when to take it and how much of the medication to take.

Medication reconciliation ensures that we account for every possible side effect and interaction that our patients’ medications could possibly cause. We instruct the patient or caregiver on symptoms that need to be reported to the physician based on the medication side effects and possible interactions with other medications or food. Our team assists the physician or clinic in the management of the anticoagulation therapy by obtaining lab work and providing education on how to manage diet, activity level and improve home safety.
