Medication Optimization

Medication Optimization refers to a wide variety of technologies designed to help manage medication information, dispensing, adherence, and tracking. Technologies range from the more complex, fully integrated devices that use information and communication technologies to inform and remind stakeholders at multiple decision and action points throughout the patient care process, to the simpler, standalone devices that have more limited functionality. Findings from the Center’s Medication Optimization Program identify the benefits of medication optimization technologies for patients, providers, and family caregivers; strategies for program deployment; program outcomes; and lessons learned.
