Preview the New Medications of 2024

Preview the new medications of 2024, as we reach the halfway point of the year.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is constantly reviewing and approving new medications and the number of medications approved in recent years has drastically increased. Keeping up with all the changes can be a full-time job. In this post, we look at the most recent approvals to keep you informed and ensure patient safety.

How do you keep your staff informed and prepared to perform medication reconciliation? Medication reconciliation is not only a standard practice, it’s an expectation of the licensing and accrediting organizations such as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), Quad A and The Joint Commission (TJC),

Because the medication reconciliation process is so critical to patient safety, each year we provide our clients with a reference tool of the newest medications on the market. This tool serves multiple purposes, it educates, it helps with medication reconciliation and is a great reference for all staff members. As you’d expect, we will provide the complete tool at the end of the year. In the meantime, our client newsletter contains a current list of the medications the FDA has approved so far this year and their indications for use.

For complete information on each of these medications, please refer to the FDA website and the FDA-Approved Prescribing Information. If you have questions or would like a copy of our reference tool, please reach out to us for more information.
