What Is A HMR?
“We visit you or the person you love – who needs help – at their home or wherever 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 sure your medicines are right for you.
A Home Medicines Review (HMR) is bulk billed by Medicare and there are no out of pocket expenses – it’s totally free to you. There is only a privacy form for you to sign at the start of 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 hard for some people to get around, especially older people living alone or in residential care, and this is why Medicare provides this program in the comfort of your own home – to help you understand your medicines better. The Home Medicines Review takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete and gives you plenty of time to ask any question about your medicines, health and general well-being.
