Who is looking at the BIG picture?

Some of my patients have a number of conditions that are being managed separately by different specialists. My question is, who is looking at the BIG picture? The respirologist is prescribing his meds, the rheumatologist her meds, the GP has her meds and now the kidney specialist wants my patient to take more meds for her new kidney problem.

Is this the best course of action to take? How are all these medications interacting? Is it possible that long term use of this chemical cocktail is what's causing harm to the kidneys in the first place? Hopefully, someone's listening to my concerns.
