promoting appropriate use of high-risk meds in the elderly
You'll see more focus on promoting appropriate use of high-risk meds in the elderly...partly due to a push to meet new quality measures.
CMS uses Star Ratings for Medicare Advantage and Part D plans. If over 3% of a plan's patients get a high-risk med, their rating can suffer...leading to less favorable marketing and potentially less money.
Now plans are recognizing the value of pharmacists in improving care and their ratings. Pharmacies that help boost ratings may have a competitive edge with payers.
