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

In recent years, clinical pharmacists have become integral members of the patient care team in the ambulatory care setting. Evidence indicates that an integrated care model allows pharmacists to help improve patient care and outcomes through pharmacist-physician collaboration. The Michigan Pharmacists Transforming Care and Quality (MPTCQ) Collaborative Process Initiative (CPI) is an example of collaboration between pharmacist practitioners and a health plan to develop a framework for clinical pharmacists to provide direct patient care and improve medication quality outcomes.

This session will provide a deeper understanding of the MPTCQ CPI, including an overview of an approach to develop a health-plan endorsed, patient-focused role for pharmacists in the patient-centered medical home. In addition, lessons learned from this implementation will also be shared. 

Learning Objectives:  

  1. Describe the opportunities and barriers to a collaborative program between health plans and patient-centered medical home (PCMH) pharmacists.
  2. Discuss the framework for training PCMH pharmacists to provide direct-patient care services in collaboration with a medical home team.
  3. Define potential improvements in medication-related quality outcomes through pharmacist participation on medical home teams.
