What Is A HMR?
“We visit you or the person you love – who needs help – at their home or where they live.”, Emmanuel Pippos, Consultant Pharmacist
A Home Medicines Review (HMR) is about you, your doctor and our consultant pharmacist. Sometimes we may speak with other people such as your carer or nursing staff, your specialist, and your community pharmacy – “Check My Medicines” puts all of the pieces of information together to make your medicines work right for you.
A Home Medicines Review (HMR) is bulk billed by Medicare and there are no out of pocket expenses – it’s free to you. There is only a privacy form for you to sign at the interview – this allows you, your doctor and our consultant pharmacist to share the information needed to complete the Home Medicines Review.
A Home Medicines Review (HMR) is provided by our consultant pharmacist – and we come to you. We know it is for some people to get around, especially older people living in residential care or respite care. This is why the government pays for our consultant pharmacist to visit you in the comfort of your own home – to help you understand your medicines better. The Home Medicines Review program works really well because it is about you, your medicines and your health.
