Medication Management

One of the most critical aspects of a patient’s recovery at home is taking medications as directed by a physician.

One of the most critical aspects of a patient’s recovery at home is taking medications as directed by a physician. Waypoint Home Health Care’s team of registered nurses and therapists follows a proven medication management regimen designed to keep patients safe and healthy at home by ensuring they:

  • Take the right medicine
  • The right dosage
  • At the right time
  • Via the right delivery route – all according to the doctor’s orders


Waypoint Home Health Care’s Medication Management program provides the patient/caregiver with thorough education on the patient’s medications and their related diagnoses, assistance with organizing medications and setting up reminders, regular medication reconciliations (when WayPoint clinicians work to ensure the patient medication list accurately corresponds with instructions on the pill bottles and how the patient describes they are taking their medications) and regular communication and medication clarifications with the patient’s physician(s).

Program Goals

  • Reduce illnesses and complications due to medication noncompliance, interactions, and errors
  • Zero medication errors by catching, correcting and conducting root cause analysis of any patient medication errors found

  • Regularly evaluate patient response to medication and its effectiveness
