2 Time line  2000-2004 Integrated Medicines Management (IMM)-patients over 65 years of age  2005-present Pharmaceutical Clinical Effectiveness  2006 - Safer Patient Initiative (International Healthcare Improvement (IHI) )  2010- present Innovation Programme

3 How was it initiated  Business case was produced indicating the work that was proposed  Resources required to undertake  Process measures  Clear outcome measures  Research base methodology

4 How Was Political Support Obtained  Northern Ireland Executive Innovation Fund proposal (1999)  Citizen Benefits for older people predicated on previous local evidence

5 How was financial support secured  Executive programme funds Euro 720k first three years for the pilot  Based on positive outcomes further investment over the next five years Euro 4.8million  Return on Investment:  For very 3 euro invested per head of population 15 Euro returned  Innovation programme 840k Euro

6 Stakeholder Buy -in  All relevant stakeholders were involved at the outset  Integration of the key healthcare team members  In the Pharmaceutical Clinical Effectiveness Programme there is a multidisciplinary collaborative approach to reach consensus on clinical products based on safety and quality

7 Implementation of the technical solution  Comprehensive education and training  Integration with medical and nursing colleagues in both primary and secondary care  Standard operating procedure development  Documentation development  Skill mix and role clarity  Software development for both operational use and process and outcome capture  Robust research based methodology-University linkage

8 How change management was implemented  Extensive pre implementation discussion with all key stakeholder groups  Workshops and presentations  Roadshows  Oversight group  Operational group

9 AIM  To optimise the benefits that patients gain from prescribed treatments through innovative technology-supported solutions delivered through intra professional and intra sectoral systems change

10 Medicine Optimisation Objectives Right Drug  Selection  Matrix methodology  STEPSelect (Safe Therapeutic Economic Pharmaceutical Selection) optimise acquisition cost  Formulary management  Guideline development

11 Medicine Optimisation Objectives Right Patient  Re-engineered clinical pharmacy services in the hospital setting (older patients)(EPICS- Electronic Pharmacist Clinical Intervention System)  Focus on admission,inpatient stay and discharge  Medicines appropriateness index  Consultant care of the elderly pharmacists in intermediate and nursing home settings  Predictive risk modelling in the elderly

12 Medicine Optimisation Objectives Right Dose  Medicines reconciliation between sectors (Writemed software)  Medicines reconciliation between professionals  Medicines reconciliation at all transitions of care  Development of the Emergency Care Summary(ECS) and then Emergency Care Record(ECR)

13 Medicine Optimisation Objectives Right Time  Commitment to EIP –AHA to improve adherence to prescribed treatments  HSC assessment tools  Adherence solutions both technological and patient focussed  e -health strategy  Development of a technology supported intervention via the Small Business Research Initiative(SBRI)

14 Results (1)  Reduced length of stay by 2 days  Reduced readmission rate  Reduced length of stay on readmission 5.8 days  Improved Medicines Appropriateness Index (17.48 to 5.69)  Reduction in 4.2 errors per admission kardex  Reduced medicines administration error rate(8.3% to 1.3%)  Reduced discharge error rate from 22% to less than 1%

15 Results (2)  Nursing home:  Four interventions per patient  Improved MAI  Reduced costs of £48 per month per patient  Reduced ED attendances  PCE programme achieved 168 million Euro of efficiency gains  Improved satisfaction with the system by patients
