Patient Counseling Initiative

HPS is now providing discharge patient counseling to improve patient outcomes, reduce hospital readmissions and keep primary care physicians informed about their patient's treatment after a hospital admission.

Our goals include:

Fill gaps in patient care by identifying discrepancies in a patient's medication regimen after a hospital admission.
Identify issues that led them to the hospital and educate them on how to successfully manage their medications and disease state.
Decrease hospital readmission through education and adherence counseling and improving quality of life through minimization of preventable adverse effects.
Increase patient satisfaction by creating an open line of communication between the patient and a caring pharmacist.
Provide a valuable program to our Texas hospital partners that also meets the criteria for the Texas Medicaid Section 1115 Waiver.
