ValueCare: Cork/Kerry Pilot Site

 
In Ireland, the ValueCare project focuses on co-designing a digital solution to help older people (≥75) experiencing mild to moderate frailty to live independently in their homes. The technology will foster regular communication between older people in the relevant organisations (primary, secondary and social care) with technology enabled data sharing & common data sets can improve flow and information exchange. Older people will access the VALUECARE integrated care pathway via referral from primary care, the emergency department, the acute medical unit or the public health nurse. The care coordinator will develop the following 4 components; case finding; needs assessment; care planning and care co-ordination.

Interdisciplinary Medication Adherence Program: The Example of a University Community Pharmacy in Switzerland

The Community Pharmacy of the Department of Ambulatory Care and Community Medicine (Policlinique Médicale Universitaire, PMU), University of Lausanne, developed and implemented an interdisciplinary medication adherence program. The program aims to support and reinforce medication adherence through a multifactorial and interdisciplinary intervention. Motivational interviewing is combined with medication adherence electronic monitors (MEMS, Aardex MWV) and a report to patient, physician, nurse, and other pharmacists. This program has become a routine activity and was extended for use with all chronic diseases. From 2004 to 2014, there were 819 patient inclusions, and 268 patients were in follow-up in 2014. This paper aims to present the organization and program’s context, statistical data, published research, and future perspectives.
