4 Benefits Of Medication Utilization Reviews

4 Benefits Of Medication Utilization Reviews

At end-of-life, the goal isn’t to treat illnesses. It is to make sure that the patient is comfortable and can have a dignified passing. With that being said, patients can often times be prescribed medications that just aren’t necessary. This is where medication utilization reviews come in handy! Let’s review the top 4 benefits.

Patient quality of life improves

Hospices can work with hospice-qualified pharmacists to work towards improving a patient's quality of life at end-of-life by deprescribing unnecessary medications.

Optimization of medication ordering

By doing a medication utilization review, you can see trends with what medications are being ordered. This helps decrease excessive delivery costs and medication overstocks. Additionally, it can help to highlight high-volume ordering to improve symptom management.

Gives a clear picture on pharmacy spend

As we covered earlier on, at end-of-life the goal isn’t to treat any conditions. It is simply to provide the patient more comfort. This means, eliminating any unnecessary medications, such as expensive (and ineffective) inhalers or compound medications. You’ll see a clearer picture on coverage on unrelated/inappropriate medications too.

Better direction on Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI)

Your staff will have better direction for educational topics for teams, tracking of antibiotic use as well as tracking Controlled Substances (CS) prescribing.
