Hackensack University Medical Center’s Pharmacy Transitions of Care (TOC) team was recently recognized with a HealthTrust 2017 Clinical Excellence Award. The HealthTrust Clinical Excellence Award recognizes members who have implemented and demonstrated a best practice in supply chain clinical initiatives. The TOC team was created to support and advance medication reconciliation and patient counseling through innovative and collaborative initiatives. Acting on evidence-based data, the TOC team began this initiative in 2015. Eight pharmacists joined the team in order to achieve the stated goals and elevate patient satisfaction.
