Deprescribing unnecessary medications and improving care coordination between providers

A patient hospitalized for chest pain and syncope was referred to Mosaic Pharmacy Service. The patient has seven different providers, including specialists. During our in-person visit, the patient’s caregiver expressed frustration over the number of medications the patient was on while lacking effective communication between prescribers.

The Mosaic team assisted in coordinating with physicians to review all of the patient’s medications. During this coordination effort, it became clear that not all members of the care team were aware of the patient’s complete medication regimen. As a result of this review, Mosaic gained agreement to discontinue unnecessary medications.
