Patient Safety & Clinical Pharmacy Services Collaborative (PSPC)
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have joined together in a national quality improvement effort to improve health outcomes and patient safety by curbing adverse drug events in seniors, a major source of potentially preventable patient harm.
Community teams are being formed now.
Multi-disciplinary teams will work across settings supporting high risk patients. These teams will include representation from pharmacy, hospital, nursing home, primary care and patient advocacy settings.
