425 Chronic Care Makeover: From Dull, Stodgy Grind to Proactive, Efficient Contemporary Care*

Chronic care is essential in a correctional facility but can be one of the biggest challenges, with a never-ending workload, tracking challenges, and ineffective reactive care. Integrating a clinical pharmacist into the chronic care team can streamline the process, improve patient outcomes, and lead to a proactive model of care. This session will review such a program and highlight the benefits of comprehensive medication management with a technology approach.

Educational Objectives:

Identify the inefficiencies associated with a traditional chronic care model in correctional health care

Discuss the use of technological surveillance to improve clinical outcomes and institutional safety for patients

Assess the impact of clinical pharmacist integration into the chronic care team in terms of provider productivity, patient outcomes, adherence to clinical guidelines, and data tracking
