The Detroit Medical Center Department of Pharmacy Services and DMC Geriatric Center of Excellence were recognized by The American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP) with a Best Practice Award for 2013. The department was honored for its program to provide advance pharmacy practice services in post-hospitalization transitions of care.
This collaborative pilot program was initiated at the Rosa Parks Geriatrics Clinic and has an integrated inpatient component which is being implemented across the DMC. The DMC pharmacist-driven medication reconciliation model is focused on high-risk patients across the continuum of care.
Each year this prestigious award is given to only 6 programs across the nation and will be presented at the upcoming ASHP Meeting in December.
The DMC is proud of this accomplishment and serves as a leading example of how the DMC continues to lead the way in innovative practice and collaboration with the Departments of Pharmacy and Medicine.
