How does IMM help senior living communities?
Optimize staff resources and ensure quality and safety
The complexity of providing care for increasingly higher acuity residents means that senior living communities devote significant time to supporting daily medication regimens. Assisted living residents have been shown use an average of 10 plus medications daily*. Many residents see multiple physicians and use multiple pharmacies for prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs, increasing the risk of errors, unintended medication interactions, and prescription duplication.
Ensuring residents get the right medication at the right time, no matter the time of day, and avoiding duplication or drug interactions is essential to providing quality, safe care. Integration with the pharmacy can address these challenges in a way that optimizes the use of staff time and ensures the right medication is delivered and administered when needed.
Automating the medication management process and integrating with a pharmacy adds an extra level of support for community staff by establishing a collaborative connection that allows a pharmacist to be a real-time member of the resident’s care team.
