Pharmacy OneSource, software-as-a-service provider of Sentri7, the real-time patient surveillance system, is pleased to announce a complimentary webinar presented by Steve Riddle, BS Pharm, BCPS, FASHP, in "Locking the Revolving Door of Readmissions: The Pharmacists Role in Keeping Patients Healthy, Happy and At Home."

Hospitals' avoidable readmission rates have come under close scrutiny by payers and policymakers because of the potential of high savings associated with them. According to a recent study, unplanned readmissions cost Medicare $17.4 billion in 2004. The study found that 20 percent of Medicare fee-for-service patients were readmitted within 30 days of discharge. In addition to having financial implications, avoidable readmissions are increasingly viewed as a quality issue by payers, health care organizations, and patients, with some research showing that readmission rates may be correlated with quality of care.

Tackling the issue of preventable readmissions will require improving care coordination between inpatient and outpatient care providers, engaging and educating the patient to manage their own care, expanding the use of technology to facilitate patient identification, risk stratification and to support care processes. While clearly a multidisciplinary effort, pharmacists can play important roles in reducing readmissions via provision of medication education and chronic disease management, medication reconciliation and ensuring use of evidence-based therapies.
