The practices that comprise Novant Health often sponsor or participate in community health education and support groups; engage in partnerships with our local Novant Health hospitals to provide outreach services, community events and screenings; and many of our physicians and staff participate in medical research and academic health programs.
Safe Med is a Novant Health, award-winning outpatient medication reconciliation program that focuses on patients, age 65 and older, who were recently discharged from the hospital. The pharmacist works with the patient to ensure understanding of his/her medication regimen and reconcile all medications the patient is currently taking in an effort to avoid an adverse drug event.
The Novant Health diabetes care program focuses on patients with diabetes, including individuals who are poor, without insurance and at risk of not being able to control their diabetes and complications. The N.C. Alliance for Healthy Communities recognized this community outreach program in 2007.
