Connecting with Pharmacists

Better patient outcomes, overall satisfaction and reducing avoidable hospital admissions

Join Our Efforts to Improve Care and Health Outcomes

With the growing number of Medicare consumers taking prescription medications and seeing multiple providers, medication safety in all healthcare settings is essential to care coordination and improving the health of consumers.

Pharmacy plays a vital role in many of our quality improvement activities. Pharmacies and pharmacists throughout the region are partnering with Great Plains QIN to improve medication safety and reduce Adverse Drug Events (ADEs). This includes implementing antibiotic stewardship programs to reduce Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs), partnering with nursing homes to reduce inappropriate antipsychotic use in dementia patients and reducing ADEs through improved care coordination at the community level.

Learning and Action Network

We invite you to join the Great Plains Learning and Action Network (LAN). All LAN partners will be invited to attend educational sessions on a variety of topics, have opportunities to learn from peers throughout the state and region and have access to an abundance of resources and tools. The LAN is a great opportunity to get connected and demonstrate your commitment to quality improvement.
