Pharmacist Medication Reviews
The current Conditions of Participation required by CMS state that a comprehensive medication review must be completed by a pharmacist for each new admission into your hospice program. These comprehensive reviews can be completed by our clinical pharmacist team within the allowable time frame. Each of our pharmacists have been trained to give a thorough review of all patient’s prescription, over-the-counter medications, and other alternative treatments that could affect medication therapy. Our pharmacists will help you identify medication effectiveness, side effects, actual or potential drug interactions, and duplicate drug therapy scenarios.
Medication review notifications for our clinicians can be automated to send alerts for any medication profiles pending review. This strengthens workflow efficiency and removes the need for your staff to manually alert our clinical team.

value to your hospice

Wise Is Currently Interfaced With More Than 11 Hospice EHR's
It's about time.
Building Smarter Workflows.
Manage Data Around the Patient - In Real Time
It has become increasingly vital to coordinate patient care across all settings in order to provide care that is safe, timely, and effective. We believe that the most efficient way for hospice to make the largest positive impact on their care coordination is to effectively leverage the connectivity between their clinical systems and their PBM platform. This technology plays an important role in enhancing patient care and creating operating efficiencies, allowing for more integrated, secure, and consistent workflows with noticeable reductions in inefficient workflows and clinical mistakes.
Wise Hospice Options has spent years building and refining the technology that enable seamless and secure data integrations between your electronic health record and our PBM platform. Our platform is designed to optimize workflows in the clinical environment so that your clinical staff don’t get bogged down by barriers to care.
