SMAP Audit

Fri, May 31, 2019

The audit focused on compliance with the SMAP policy and the program effectiveness and did not assess clinical judgment recommendations.

Results showed the patient’s consent signature for the SMAP services (i.e. medication assessments and follow-ups) was obtained and documented in 100% of the audited forms. Keep up the great work!

However, audit results showed that only 58% of SMAP forms had signed consent for compliance packaging where the pharmacist recommended, and the patient still received compliance packaging services.
