Keeping patients safe when they transfer between care providers
Health professionals know that poor communication about medicines when a patient transfers from secondary to primary care is not new and the transfer of care process is associated with an increased risk of harm. It’s something that has frustrated hospital pharmacies, community pharmacies and GP’s for a long time, this is what the Transfer of Care Around Medicines (TCAM) programme aims to address.
When patients are discharged from hospital, they may be referred through PharmOutcomes, a safe and secure digital platform, for advice from their local community pharmacist on how to manage their medicines with confidence. By improving the transfer of information about a patient’s medicines should help ensure they continue to take the right medication and reduce the incidence of avoidable harm.
The TCAM pathway also brings benefits to Community Pharmacy through better informed dispensing and operational processes, and a reduction in waste medicine.
