This session will focus on the importance and role of pharmacists in Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) and can touch how collection, documentation and exchange of standard electronic clinical information through HIEs will assist in value-based payment models for pharmacists for transitions of care, Medication Therapy Management (MTM), and other pharmacist-provided patient care services. The Pharmacy HIT Collaborative (Collaborative), an organization that was founded in 2010 by nine national pharmacy associations has been a leading force in integrating pharmacists into the national HIT infrastructure.

Pharmacist and Pharmacy Technician Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe a roadmap the pharmacy practice can follow to adopt pharmacist electronic health records (EHRs) to facilitate safe and effective medication use through integrating pharmacist-provided patient care service documentation with other health care providers and the patients.
  2. Explain how collection, documentation and exchange of standard electronic clinical information through HIEs will assist in value-based payment models for pharmacists for transitions of care, Medication Therapy Management (MTM), and other pharmacist-provided patient care services.
  3. Discuss how pharmacists' adoption of EHR system functionality for documentation and exchange of pharmacist-provided patient care services helps to bring together all providers on the health care team to reach better patient outcomes.
