Aligning service offerings and workflow can create opportunities for service-based billing in your pharmacy. In the current environment with changes affecting prescribers regarding quality metrics and value-based payments, prescribers are more eager and willing to team with pharmacists. Chronic care management, among other services, provides an opportunity for partnership in billable services. This session outlines a stepwise approach to practice implementation that will help you match up services with openings to partner with other providers for payment. Come prepared to start planning your next steps, what your services are, who potential partners are, and what your value proposition is. Walk away with a plan.
