A medication review is a patient-care service that seeks to enhance a patient’s understanding of, and improve the health outcomes of, their medication regimen.
The service is provided by a pharmacist through one-on-one, the in-person appointment during which the patient and pharmacist identify all medications that the patient is taking, discuss how the medications are best taken and, where appropriate, create a medication management plan to address any issues. At the end of the appointment, the pharmacist provides the patient with one or more documents listing their medications.
Medication Bridge is a community service program that helps patients obtain prescription drugs directly from pharmaceutical companies at little or no cost.
It is an initiative to help low-income persons access needed medications from pharmaceutical companies.
Concierge Services is a relationship between a patient and a primary care physician in which the patient pays an annual fee or retainer. This may or may not be in addition to other charges. In exchange for the retainer, doctors agree to provide enhanced care, including principally a commitment to limit patient loads to ensure adequate time and availability for each patient.
The practice has been referred to as concierge medicine, retainer medicine, membership medicine, cash-only practice, and direct care. While all “concierge” medicine practices share similarities, they vary widely in their structure, payment requirements, and form of operation. In particular, they differ in the level of service provided and the fee charged.
A request to reschedule an appointment is usually written by or on behalf of a party who had already agreed or was requested to meet with the other party with a view to requesting that the scheduled appointment be rescheduled as a result of a change in a previously assumed condition.
