The American health care service delivery system is undergoing an enormous change—the fee-for-service system is slowly being replaced by a variety of managed care initiatives. The market shift toward value-based care presents unprecedented opportunities and challenges for pharmacies. Instead of rewarding volume, new value-based payment models reward better results in terms of cost, quality, and outcome measures. The LTC pharmacy that understands these issues and develops processes to efficiently and effectively deliver care in this new environment will be increasingly sought after by skilled nursing facilities and other providers. Learn more about medication management in the accountable care environment to better assist your SNF clients and partner with your GSO for success in the LTC environment.

Pharmacist and Pharmacy Technician Learning Objectives:
  1. Discuss process changes for medication management in an accountable care environment.
  2. Describe how bundled payments differ and how they affect pharmacy and facility reimbursements.
  3. Outline how GSOs can facilitate changes to pharmacy process to improve partnerships with SNFs.
