Green Tree Pharmacy worked in conjunction with the Southern Illinois University College of Medicine’s Endocrinology Department to develop a diabetes management program. This program has demonstrated a statistically significant decrease in hypoglycemia. We understand the potential for improved outcomes in other areas of geriatric medicine, and continue to explore additional ways to enhance the quality of life of our residents.
Hospital Readmissions and Psychotropic Drug Use
Our consultant pharmacists are actively addressing drug therapy regimens that impact the most frequent causes of medication-related hospital readmissions. Residents at facilities served by Green Tree Pharmacy have lower-than-average hospital readmission rates. We also closely monitor psychotropic drug use, and our facilities have lower-than-average psychotropic drug utilization rates as well.
