The Royal Pharmaceutical Society outlines the principles of the Medicines Optimisations agenda as an ‘aim to understand the patient’s experience, evidence based choice of medicines, ensure medicines use is as safe as possible, make medicines optimisation part of routine practice.’
Primary Care clinicians are essential for implementing this agenda, however with ever increasing workloads and pressures on GPs and Pharmacists access to quality data has never been so important. Medicines Optimisation is a new medicines management tool that uses various algorithms to locate patients who are suitable for a medication review. Medicines Optimisation can assist you to reduce the amount of time spent conducting manual data analysis and increase the time available for medication reviews which ultimately will lead to improved patient outcomes.
