Primary care medical practice models are evolving as they shift to pay-for-performance (P4P) reimbursement models. These changes are causing dramatic shifts in the focus on how health care is delivered in this setting. Physicians are evolving into health team leaders as they attempt to increase access to care while also improving quality and lowering costs. These changes are providing new opportunities for community pharmacists to partner with primary care providers in innovative team-based care models to improve patient outcomes. This program will explore opportunities for community pharmacists to step up into these new roles to play a key role as a high performing team member. Learn how to take your medication synchronization program and patient care services to the next level while improving patient outcomes and generating new revenue streams.
