Pharmacists' Role within Value Based Care Models

Activity Preview

Value-based care models are evolving rapidly. The pharmacist’s role in these models is not well established or measurements clearly defined or understood as it relates to pharmacists’ patient care services.  A collaborative approach to identify and develop a system for referral between pharmacists and other health care providers and between pharmacists themselves needs to also be defined to ensure patient and healthcare team member access the pharmacists who can best address the needs of the patient, resolve issues and recommend action plans for patient management.  Under value-based care models, various team members can play a vital role in meeting established measures that can lead to enhanced team compensation.
