As an accredited provider, AMCP strictly adheres to the ACPE Standards for Commercial Support and other relevant guidelines and standards to ensure the independence of continuing pharmacy education (CPE) activities.  It is AMCP’s intent that all CPE activities be independent, objective, balanced, evidence-based and free of any commercial bias.   

Target Audience: This repurposed session from the AMCP Annual Meeting 2016 is designed to provide insights and solutions for pharmacists who practice in managed care settings, to help them maintain and enhance their knowledge, skills, and abilities.

Activity Overview

High-tech health care is poised to change the dynamics of how patients, providers and other stakeholders interact. Similar to the tech boom of the 90s, this health care-centered tech boom will impact communication, access to data, and behavior on a large scale. In turn, more mega and patient-specific data and evidence will be available more readily.

This must-attend session will cover the patient and provider perspective on the latest innovative digital health technology and digital medicines. Through discussion of real-world case studies, the audience will gain insights on how digital medicines can be used in a managed care setting to address the current gaps in population health management. 

Learning Objectives:  

1. Discuss how payers can use digital health tools to address current gaps in population health management.

2. Discuss the patient and provider perspective on digital health solutions in terms of current and future use.

3. Explain how managed care pharmacy can use digital health tools, such as digital medicines, to improve the quality of care delivered to populations.
