2022 Stronger - PH316 - Establishing a Medication Value Analysis Committee With Site-of-Care Considerations
UCSF Health underwent a comprehensive assessment to identify ways to manage use of high-cost medications. The assessment incorporated strategies in the published literature and external best practices to develop a new model for site-of-care considerations during inpatient hospital stays. This effort resulted in the formation of an interdisciplinary subcommittee of the Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee called the Medication Value Analysis Committee, as well as the creation of a site-of-care appropriateness questionnaire called the Outpatient Medication Used Inpatient.
