In partnership with the Michigan Pharmacists Association, a very high priority has been identified for implementing a two-pronged technical framework to optimize medication use safety and outcomes across the state. Due to the fragmented U.S. healthcare system, patients being unreliable reporters of their medication use, use of over-the-counter (OTC) medications and supplements not being identified, and other obstacles, executing medication reconciliation well can be challenging. Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) are uniquely positioned with the infrastructure needed to support and facilitate the medication reconciliation process.
MiHIN is organizing an in-person Advanced Statewide Medication Reconciliation Workshop on Wednesday, January 24, in Lansing to kick off the planning for additional medication reconciliation Use Cases and future pilot projects. Please join us to frame current challenges and identify and prioritize action steps to begin testing a statewide data-sharing use case and related care coordination infrastructure through targeted pilot activities; these pilots will lead to the establishment of protocols and critical statewide infrastructure to navigate the technical, financial, and legal and organizational dimensions necessary to improve medication reconciliation.
Date: Wednesday, January 24
Time: 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Location: Venue 1111 – 5660 W. Sagniaw Hwy, Lansing, MI 48917
Please register here no later than January 19
Organizations can send whoever they wish, but collectively, we are looking for a mixed representation of people with clinical, technical, and organizational/financial familiarity in this area of health management. A whitepaper, co-authored by Allen Flynn, Ph.D., Pharm D and James Stevenson, PharmD, FASHP of the University of Michigan and Isabell M. Pacheco, DSc, FACHE, of MiHIN, is linked here for further background and additional details are attached.
