Aetna Targets Readmissions With Pharmacy Pilot

Aug 29, 2013: Aetna is kicking off a pilot program to provide one-on-one medication management support services to members at risk for hospital readmissions.

The program is expected to help members manage their health through personal support from a pharmacist including in-home consultations. It will focus on members who take multiple medications and have recently been discharged from a hospital, nursing home or rehabilitation facility.
